Hi all,

1) Current projects

- Joerg (Nexyon) has Ogg Vorbis and Theora sound worknow. Wav and flac  
- Shaul reports that Lux Render project moved to 2.5 integration.

- Thomas mentions module owner list again:
   Should get priority now!

2) Next 2.5 release

- Brecht compliments everyone with bug tracker attack! Open issues  
went down from 275 to 138 in a week, with even 80 new reports added.  
(Special thanks to Brecht, Campbell & Matt!).

- Matt has summer holidays now, will do some docs and website work  
this week, and resumes work in March

- Time for a new and final release target list, with essential fixes  
and todos. Ton has it on his list to present a.s.a.p. Target is still  
to make a next release fit for documentation work.

- Ton proposes a full feature stop until we can call Blender "stable"  
and "usable" again. It's time to get past the alpha or beta  
discussions, and just put all efforts in having a working Blender as  

- Related to that, the 2.5 roadmap plan should be adjusted, based on  
fewer updates and state as we're in now. Next release (2.5 beta 1)  
could arrive within a month or so... depends on how complicated the  
release target list will be.

- Jason mentions that he'd prefer toolbox back (as for 2.4x), which  
was a good feature for documentation for him. Ton invites all  
documenters to send in their top hotlists todos (only the essentials  
please!) this week latest.
