    It's not fully functional yet, I have issues where "some" of my .blend files can't be imported, I have to change the rig type to solve this, also, when choosing a mesh for a mesh renderer, none of my meshes from my .blend appear in the list of available meshes. I'm using 2019.1.3f1

    It claims to be fixed, but I tried it on 2019.1.10f1 and importing .blend files from Blender 2.80 Release Candidate is not working. Perhaps they changed something in the file format after the original fix. I'm fairly certain the file format won't change anymore, since this is the last version of Blender before the full release (coming in a few days) and they are just doing bug fixes.

    Using current Unity version (2019.1.9) and most current Blender 2.8 release (d663048696b2) but the issue of Blender files being misread by Unity has NOT been fixed. I am trying to import a scene that contains only a mesh and an armature with animation frames and the importer is not finding any bones in the scene at all, it just sees the mesh and the material. This is a serious problem for my workflow because I currently have to re-import and completely re-setup an fbx every time I add a new animation in Blender. Please revisit this!

    this is almost working. embedded materials are not interpretting the fbx material's albedo RGBA color correctly. instand of using the albedo colors alpha, it's using the average of the RGB values forcing the only color possible with an embedded material that is opaque to be white. {1, 1, 1, 1}

    there's a thread conversation about it here:

    Bug still exists in Unity 2018.3.0f11!!!

    One of the smoothest workflows I enjoyed was making models in blender and then just importing or dragging the .blend file into unity, and it would convert to FBX behind the scenes and correctly apply the materials and interpret the normals etc. Also, changes in the /blend file would be immediately reflected in Unity! From a designer point of view, this is vastly easier and more efficient than trying to convert FBX in blender and then also separately trying to create materials in unity to apply a UV texture. Please please please address this. I know Blender 2.80 is still beta but at this stage it's very mature and stable: it doesn't feel like a beta anymore. And most blender tutorials now work with 2.80.

    This one has to be sorted out sooner or later, sooner is better, don't you think?

    Far as I understand the .blend file support in Unity is based on opening the blend file on the background and automatic export/import processes. Well hopefully they will update it soon.

    yeah, this feature should have more attention as blender will soon releases it's official stable version of 2.8
