1) current 2.34 projects
   - particles:
      + Ton committed Leons code to BF.
      + problems with orbiting particles around deflector field.
      + force field options need some evaluation, math too.
      + deflector visualisation: concentric circles, blended w background
   - yafray:
      + Alejandro is still working on getting plugin to work on win32.
Nathan L helps him spot the wrinkles and iron them out.
      + Tex space problem still but Alfredo de G is out for now.
      + the tracker yafray issues will be worked on in coming weeks
   - weighted subsurf creases:
      + no news, Ton hopes to do it this week.

2) possible 2.34 extras
   - BGL into Game Engine? Kester knows best about this.
   - view grid by Chris B and Emilia.

   # both issues taken to ML for further discussion.

3) installation issues
   - translated paths are still causing grief for installation on Windows,
 Simon C and Nathan L will be sorting this out coming week...again.
Martin P has been working on the installer scripts to work with MSVC.
Also look at blenderplayer to fit in installation.

   - current file still ugly. Need to be worked on.
   - needs update for MacOS (Ton), Python part needs some sorting out
(JLuc P + Ton).

5) release/test cycle
   - Matt E made icons to denote release status on frontpage.
   - B-con feels a bit awkward, but after lots of testosterone-pumped
ideas, we still go with b-con.
