Hi all,

After three years of more than excellent services at Blender  
Institute, Brecht has decided to move on with his career and accept  
per september a position as software architect at Refractive Software  
in Belgium, which is close to where he lives. He will be working on  
the very promising Octane renderer, which caused many heads to turn at  
the last Siggraph expo.

Brecht's position will be filled by Campbell Barton, who will start  
working full time on Blender development, coder support, bug fixing  
and Python design - working from his home in Melbourne Australia. Well  
he did this mostly already, but now will be official and paid! :)
Currently Diego Borghetti is working half time for the Blender  
Foundation on bug tracker support. This month I'll also know more of  
our financial scope, but quite likely another full timer can be  
recruited then for support & fixing.

It's been a great pleasure and honour to have Brecht work for us in  
the past years. He's done tremendously important contributions, for  
which I certainly will miss him. Luckily Brecht will remain involved  
with Blender, also as a developer in his spare time.

I wish Brecht all the luck and success with his new job, and welcome  
Campbell to the team!
