Hi all,

Here's the notes from today's meeting, irc.freenode.net #blendercoders

1) Blender 2.64 status

- Bugs bugs bugs... tracker keeps stable around 300 open issues. We still need more developers to close & fix!

- Campbell Barton suggests to disable some features before release. He'll come with a proposal for which ones later.

- New Compositor and Masking can be finished up this month

- Cycles has a lot of open issues, with Brecht on holidays now we might better need docs or some tooltip/widget to warn about experimental features. In general Cycles' status is better than in 2.63, worth releasing.

- Ton Roosendaal proposes to postpone 2.64 until mid September, and in the meantime keep trunk feature-frozen (BCon3), with as exception approved/stable work for Mango - which is mostly color pipeline and grading features.

2) Other projects

- Sergey Sharybin will do sequencer work, grading tools. Docs or proposal will be published in 2 weeks max.

- Sergej Reich (and Daniel Genrich) proposes to remove the old "Continuous physics option - this now becomes default anyway. Will be done together with future merger of the Physics GSoC project.

3) Google Summer of Code

- For review: new subdivision surface modifier:

- Sergej Reich reminds everyone to his video of 2 weeks ago: http://vimeo.com/45038904

- Google midterm results: out of the 16 projects, 2 students didn't pass midterm due to lack of results. That's the projects for Cycles Subsurface Scattering and Polygon tessellation. Fourteen students will now head at a successful completion of their work! Congrats :)
