The new Blender 2.8 is out in Beta version. The user interface is drastically different. Selecting, changing modes… drastic changes. Better? Probably. It would have been nice if Blender worked this way long ago. I think it is more intuitive for the Blender nubie.

You’ll find so much changes. I expect Blender 2.8 will initially be unusable until we learn all the changes.
Bookmark the video. You’ll be wanting to come back to it to see how things are done.
