Quick reply on DEM node,

Yes that's ready, Lukas Tonne said he'd review.

The 2D mask editor code is working on the "mask" side, but I had 0% of
the UI code for it done, so that'll be at least 2.63. Discussed some
important things with Sebastian and Daniel. Will send UI proposal in
shortly. Will have time to get it in good shape this week.
