Hi all,

Here is a summary of today's meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Blender 2.65 release review

Most people agree that the release was quite stable, yet a couple of regressions make it better to upgrade to an 'a' release this week. Most notable:
- Obj imports with alpha zero
- Vertex Paint 'subtract' fails
- Bevel on wire edges crashed

Campbell will send a list of commits to be included in the 2.65 branch to this list, for confirmation.

Planning: wednesday "Ahoy", release on the day after.

2) Planning for 2.66

- Nicholas Bishop has Dynamic Topology sculpting read for review, can get included in 2.66.

- Antonis Ryakiotakis: has been working on bringing back edge based UV stitch and possibly isomap unwrapping from the Google Summer of Code 'bratwurst' branch. Code can be found here https://github.com/Psy-Fi/psy-fi_blender

- Brecht van Lommel's roadmap for Cycles:
  He will possibly merge the work on hair rendering... it's under review still.

- Freestyle is under review still - Bastien Montagne has been working there. 

- Sergej Reich will work on getting his Bullet branch (rigid body support for animation) ready
  He would still need more feedback from users, and people to help making docs, tutorials.

- Planning for 2.66:
  BCon 2 dec 30 (deadline for defining release targets)
  BCon 3 jan 20 (latest date to get your stuff in)
  BCon 4 feb 3  (only crucial fixes)
  Release feb 10+

3) other projects

- Depsgraph recode, Brecht wrote up a proposal for how to structure it:

- Martin Felke sumitted a voronoi fracture modifier:
