Hi all,

1) 2.5x project, 2.57 release

- Ton mentioned he added code to prevent 3d window to redraw during  
initialize render stage. Someone reported a drawing glitch for this,  
needs to be confirmed and pinned down.

- Keymaps save/load (or assign/unassign) has open issues, especially  
for the Maya keymap. Martin Poirier will check on it.

- RC0 test builds are here: http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.57/

- Linux RC0 64 bits has bad openAL (crashes on ALT+A). Might need an  
updated chroot? Campbell and Sergey offered help to check.

- Linux script to run software Opengl is currently broken. Campbell or  
one of the release builds could check.

- SOX: blenderplayer.app is not building currently.

- Windows installer is still not back. Caleb Joseph (Dobx) offers help  
here, he will work with Nathan Letwory on it.

- New startup.blend still has to be added, Ton will do asap.

- Planning: call for a RC1 tuesday/wednesday, next sunday review of  
status. Then decide to call for release or another RC2 test.

- Autobuild system: still needs a linux chroot, Sergey will help  
Brecht with it.

- Test files for regression will be updated too.

2) GSoC

- Tomorrow students can apply for the Google Summer of Code.

- Ideas list has been reviewed, updated a bit:

- Tom Musgrove suggests everyone to make advertisement for GSoC, we  
love to see a lot of submissions!
