I would like to continue testing with version 016 for Blender 2.8 but my version of Blender is now 2.80.41.... I need 2.80.39 otherwise it's a no go.
Where can I download previous version(s) of Blender 2.80. There is an archive download area for 2.79 (and lower) but not for 2.80.
Currently we're trying to negotiate with the blender devs to have the problem we're facing fixed. If that problem is fixed, then we'll have a compatible version ready in a few days (post the fixed blender build being released as a daily version of the blender beta).
The other option is to build blender from source prior to the change. I'll need to get familiar with the details on where the breaking change is to post instructions for doing that though.
If you'd really like to help with our mini-campaign to get support from blender then you can simply (and respectfully) write a comment that you'd like the issue fixed. Here's a link to the bug report I wrote on blender's development website, you can post your comment in support of fixing the bug there :) And thanks in advance!
