[Bf-committers] Release progress report

Hi all,

This sunday meeting we went over release issues and todos:

- Windows "Redistributable" install issue; decision was made to accept  
this for 2.44. It seems to cause some stir, so we have to make this  
painless as possible. Simon will check on adding a clear hint +  
download link in the installer.

- SSS needs a bit of testing and integration fixes. Is no showstopper  
(SSS is bonus feature with a WIP sticker on it)

- Regression suite files have to be upgraded, ton does.

- Splash: the judges from 2.43 still had to appoint a new team... in  
order to get things done quickly, I've asked Ken Hughes to coordinate  
splash contest, and have Brecht and Joshua (Aligorith) to review with  
him. The democratic method can come back for 2.50 :)

(Note for those who will miss the cool blue-boy 2.43 splash, we picked  
it as Essential Blender book cover!)

- FFMPG: Nathan checks on adding this to the Windows release (the RC  
has it even). Jean-Luc will try it for OSX even.

No real showstoppers have been detected. So, unless we get a veto in  
(showstoppers where art thou!) we release 2.44 on the 10th of may,  
closing cvs indefinitely on the 9th...

Yes, then around the 11th we should have a svn repository, on another  
computer. CVS can remain available for reading for a while after, until  
svn works for everyone.

Later more,
