Hi all,

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

1) Planning and targets for next 2.70 release

- Target and planning list:

- Proposal is to keep "BCon1" for one more week.

- Sergey Sharbyin thinks his GSoC branch (threaded object update) will be mostly OK for inclusing in 2.70.

- Brecht van Lommel has picked up development for Volume render, but will spend next week mostly on reviewing and bug tracker.

- Thomas Dinges: all platforms have been updated to OpenImageIO 1.3.9 and OSL 1.4.0

- Windows XP discussion: Meeting agrees on waiting two more releases before deciding to drop it. However, the fact we might drop support mid 2014 can be listed on the d/l page.

2) Other projects

- Ton Roosendaal mentions shortly that work for Gooseberry (next open movie) is going to start next year, on topics such as CMS and Asset management and the animation/physics system (particles, fur, hair, cloth, nature, massive/crowd sims). Info is going to be public this month hopefully. Working on it!
