Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.63

- Campbell worked on BMesh last week. Weekly report:

- Or in short: X3D is working, BMesh python api has customdata access (UVs, vcolors, shapes), old trunk bevel modifier back (was todo we talked of a while back).

- Bevel tool for modeling: we have permission to use the method and code from:

- Howard Trickey works on porting it, first in Python to validate it though.

- Brecht: I am working on ramps, motion vectors for cycles, shadow pass, background images view with cycles, and separate control for AA samples vs. other samples to make rendering simple passes/layers quicker. Should go to svn next week.

- Ton: bug tracker has 210 open reports, everyone is invited to check and fix!

- As planned, we now move to BCon3 status (polishing and fixing period).

- BMesh docs can use upgrade. Howard Trickey volunteers to get Knife tool page upgraded.

2) Other projects

- Most of the meeting time went to troll hunting. Some kiddie thinks it's fun to spoil our irc and the mango blog. For now (hopefully temporary) the #blendercoders channel will only voice people with a registered freenode nick. That's common anyway. 

3) Google Summer of Code (GSoC)

- Blender has been accepted again! Mentors can sign up now:

- This week we can still tweak our ideas page. Tom Musgrove does a call for everyone to advertise our gsoc opportunity at your university computer science and CG departments.
