Change Log

Below is a “sanitized” version of the DAZ Studio change log leading to an update to version 4.6.3.50. This log is posted as part of a conscious effort to be more transparent in the development process. That being said, not all information relating to a particular build is present on this page - some information is still considered private and is therefore not included.

Change logs for previous versions can be found here:
