Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.66 release

- The release cycle planning is to enter BCon4 today - means we're feature-complete now, and only work on the bug fixes.

- Bug tracker is on 94 open issues, not too bad, but everyone's invited to check on his/hers assigned reports!

- Brecht van Lommel: The 'sm 2.0' bugs are the biggest Cycles show stopper, he will check on systems in Blender Institute tomorrow.

- Sergej Reich: Rigid Body work is all ok. Constraint visualization has been worked on, but is 2.67 target.

- Meeting agrees on doing an official test build tuesday. Jens Verwiebe (OS X), Thomas Dinges (Windows), and Sergey Sharybin are standby. 
(Question, is FreeBSD possible again as release too?)

- If all goes according planning, next sunday we will do the 2.66 Release Candidate build.

- Problem: Multisample OpenGL drawing for Linux users fails a lot using backbuffer selection (Editmode Mesh). Suggested was to either remove this option (for Linux) or add a huge warning label underneath the button when you enable it. 

2) Other projects

- Proposal for "Minimal Platform list" has been improved. No immediate actions will be taken though, apart from allowing developers to close issues in tracker for old platform issues we cannot redo.

- OpenGL stays on 1.4+ still, but will be investigated in the next months.

- Lukas Toenne: Pynodes will be ready for merger after release.

- Next release FreeStyle is a target too, everyone please test and help out!
