**** 2.49

- Some complaints went on that too many new (although good!) GE stuff  
went in svn last weeks, postponing release. Benoit promised it's done  
for now though. :)

- 64 bits windows version is having strange issues, Daniel G. checks on  

- better python docs for GE:  

- urgent call to help with demo files to show GE features! Preferably  
from someone who follows progress well, to assist Benoit. He will also  
upload his own test files.

- Dalai moves bugfixes for dome rendering to svn

- Matt D. provided fix for mousewheel zoom bug in Windows, Thomas D.  

- Proposal: next week final verdict, and then call for real release!

**** GSoC

- Official start is in a week. Everyone's still invited to check on the  

Especially Jingyuan Huang's work is ready for end-user feedback, she  
didn't get yet much in via blenderartists forums.

**** Current projects

- Martin P. reviewed http://www.littlecms.com/
It's a small color profiles and proofing library. He likes to see  
someone interested to take this further later, will commit it to 2.5  
branch now.

- BF rented a small (10x20 feet) booth on Siggraph now. Unfortunately  
all big corporate sponsors suffer crisis still. Also a smaller booth  
will be fun, 4 systems + big display, and have lots of fun! Volunteers  
interested to demo can contact me. There's a small (unknown yet) amount  
of free Siggraph passes for the active demo crew, and in addition a  
larger amount (over 30 ?) free 'exhibit only' passes. For the latter  
I'll do a public call later.

**** Blender 2.5

- UI work progresses, but slow still. Expectation is that now 2.49 is  
nearly out, durian preparations are settled, things speed up more.  
Siggraph remains target!
