Change log Blender 2.28 release


- Included new default .B.blend file in Blender, with Material, Texture, World
and 'draw faces' and 'draw edges' options set.

switches to Lamp shading settings (F4). And vice versa.

nasty drawing error. (Typical when you fire up Blender and didn't save yet).
- BUG FIX: saving VRML 1.0 files had incorrect UV coordinates.
- Installation for MS Windows now works property for all versions.
- Tooltips (buttons) now wait 0.3 seconds beforr popping up.

------Audio (new!)

- Blender now allows playback of audio, in 3D window for syncing, as well in the
Sequence editor. 
- Editing with audio strips in the Sequence editor ... 

And many more things :)

maybe the news is not yet on the website because I was on irc when they told me
that 2.28 was released and the website needed a small update.
