Hi all,

1) Current projects and 2.5x

- Cocoa Blender
It seems like Blender for OSX has a bright 64 bits future after all!  
New developer Damien Plisson, experienced OSX cocoa coder, has picked  
up the porting project again. Design for the port might involve some  
shuffles in the Blender windowmanager, for which some reviews and  
cereful steps will be needed. Best is to move this to a branch for now.

- Backporting 2.5 features to 2.49
Benoit was contacted by users to port 2.50 work he did on armatures in  
GE to 2.49. He wanted feedback on this issue, most people advised  
against it.

- Fixes in 2.49b branch
Rendering specularity slowed down render too much. Jpeg 2000 wrote  
wrong alphas.
Team discusses shortly if we would do a 2.49c update ever. No consensus  
here... not much enthusiasm either!

2) Merging branches

- Mesh speedup project from Lukas can be merged, but will be default  
disabled in code.
- New Raytracer: merge is waiting for final fixes and tweaks
- Collada: merging is in progress, windows version needs work still

3) Other projects

- Nurbs project is back, porting things to the 2.5x code over now.
