Yet another week has gone by with lots of activity. Janne worked on
sequencer and render related bugs, closing 10 of them. Current fixes are
mainly bandage, as sequencer would need recode to use the jobs system
properly to function properly.
Campbell fixed snapping pose bones and did a number of fixes on rotation
related code. He also managed to do a workaround crash on startup when
using ATi open source drivers. Blenderplayer builds again when using
CMake. Cleaning and using stricter compiler warnings (and some of them
now trigger errors instead) have been done.
Nathan worked on Windows GHOST related issues, fixing modifier key bugs
and investigated event system related bugs, specific to Windows. He
moved COLLADA related bugs to wiki todo list, and asks for help from
interested developers, to work on the issues and send in patches.
For numbers and pictures about progress, see end of this message.
