Hi all,

1) Current projects

- FFMPG was in svn still, with some of our patches. This is not needed  
anymore, and will get removed from svn (martin?).

- For correct timed sound playback, we need to use the sound library  
clock and not internal timer. It's something that needs to be added to  
the window manager in Blender probabably. Ton will check with Campbell  
and or Brecht on ideas for how to solve it, and come back to Joerg for  

- Mitchell Stokes (moguri) gets commit rights on a branch to check on  
replacing Game Engine's "moto" math code with Eigen2.

2) Blender 2.5

- Next release target list is still on the todo.

- Tom Musgrove started a forum thread to collect all crucial missing  
2.4x features.

- Ton also likes to hear from book authors their top lists of missing  
features, to ensure we know the issues well.

- Brecht noted that there were 100 bugs closed last week, and a 100  
added again... so we do progress, but not enough yet. :)

- In general, meeting thought the deadline "a beta version ready for  
documenting" is probably too far away, in that case we better make an  
alpha update, especially to provide everyone with a good updated  
reference binary for reporting. We decide on this next week, based on  
a final 2.5 beta target list.

- Luxrender team already started on migrating to 2.5 as well. The have  
a couple of features to be added in Blender to make it all work. Ton  
mentioned work on proper extending/integrating Blender is currently  
anticipated to happen after the summer time. A lot is possible already  
now though.
