Hi all,

Here's the summary of today's meeting.

1) Blender 2.63 progress

- Full report of Campbell's work last week (on BMesh):

- In short: he fixed tools like Edge rotate, Rip, Edge-split. Made export to OBJ and FBX working.

- Bmesh API update:

- Mesh bevel still needs work. The singular bevel case works (1 new face on edges) but for a smooth bevel (higher subdivision, rounded bevel) we need good code still. *Help wanted!*

- Nicholas Bishop: added improvements for sculpt drawing:

- Lukas Toenne: Groups node patch is still pending review, custom nodes are half way there. Lukas is making himself familiar with the OpenCL & tiling code for more complex composite nodes.

- We're still on track for a release, in 3-4 weeks time.

2) Other projects

- Mike Erwin has been working on tablet code (the pen/tablet input device, not iPad :). It could be ready for this release, making things work a better in general and fixing ~14 bugs in the tracker.

- Brecht will be meeting with the Mango team tomorrow, going over production-readiness targets. Or in other words: "the shortest path to make something like last week's workshop possible in cycles".

- Review reminder: Bastien Montagne worked on new/better definition for "Hinge" bone:

3) GSoC

- The application has been done, this friday we know if we're in!

- Starting 26 march students can apply, so let's make sure the wiki page is correct:

That's it. Thanks!
