I talked to the dev behind this. He said the next release should be before Christmas IIRC.

Interesting, I've been recently doing something similar. Basically I wanted to make a "bird simulator" game and decided to use Blender as terrain/world editor, since why program new tools when there already are good tools that you're used to working with? I managed to make shaders to do terrain texture splatting in Blender and then export it to Irrlicht. It worked pretty well.

How would you merge the terrain that was created in Blender into the esp file that would be created in OpenMW-CS?

This does sound exciting. Blender would allow for vertical terrain.

I too am interested in this. I can make terrain using tesannwyn and after toying around with it for a little while I found that it is pretty good (Can get predictable positive results now from it, and hope to come up with something that I would deem release-able) but I am interested in how this works too.
