Hi all,

I'm very pleased to announce we have sponsoring continued and enough  
Blender store income to continue hire people for the next period. Even  
outside a potential film project (Mango) which possibly starts after  
the summer.

Apart from myself of course, these two people will be involved as paid  

- Campbell Barton
Campbell will keep doing his amazing work on stabilizing Blender and  
improving Python. Special attention will go to improving import/ 
export, wrapping up API todos including much better UI integration for  
scripts, and support on migration of branches, like BMesh.

- Brecht van Lommel
Brecht will be back officially per May 1st! Apart from all regular  
support work he'll work on leading a project for a brand new shader/ 
render system in Blender. Plus of course related targets for a Mango  

It's great to have Brecht back, exciting times are ahead :)
