Hello, Neoner doesn’t seem to work on Blender 4.0 (I’m on Mac ARM). Are you releasing a Blender 4.0 compatible version ? Thank you. Best regards.

Hi!
I updated the add-on for compatibility with Blender 4.0. It works in 4.1a too.
Please redownload and reinstall the add-on. Don’t forget to restart Blender after the update.
I use Windows and can’t test it on Mac. If you can use its previous versions on Mac, this version should work too.
If you will have any problems, please write to me.
