Hi everyone,

1) Blender 2.63a
- Meeting agreed on doing an "a" release with some bug fixes.
Campbell and Brecht made a list of fixes that should be included, 
further discussion will be done on the mailing list.

- Release of 2.63a will be middle of this week (Wednesday?)

2) Current projects
- Keir is working on some tracker improvements in libmv:
-- Integration of Ceres: 
-- Planar tracker

- Campbell mentions customdata layers are wrapped now (MTexPoly was 
missing from release) (Python API)

- Brecht is working on OpenImageIO image cache usage to load more 
image text
ures than fit in memory (cpu only).
He is also working on a light falloff node: that is a control for light 
falloff like blender internal has, constant/linear/quadratic, and an 
option to soften light near the light source.

- Pablo Vazquez will prepare a nice list with some new defaults for 
Blender, based on community feedback.

-Jeroen Bakker reports the current status of the tile branch: 
Will probably be merged to trunk within the next 1-2 weeks.

3) Google Summer of Code
- All students should have been in contact with their mentors.
- Students should start a thread on blenderartists.org to collect 
feedback and introduce themselves to the community. :)

Best regards,

Thomas Dinges
Blender Developer, Artist and Musician
