Hi all,

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

1) Upcoming 2.66 release

- Main release showstopper is problems with Cycles GPU rendering for 32 bits systems. Brecht van Lommel and Sergey Sharybin will work on this the next few days.

- Bug tracker has enough issues to keep fixing, but no (other) showstoppers are there. Assuming the Cycles topic gets handled, we'll call for a Release Candidate on wednesday.

- Next sunday meeting we'll review the results of the RC release and decide on an actual release day.

2) Other projects, targets for 2.67

- Freestyle: no news... but still possible.

- Ton Roosendaal will work on a nice C implementation (+ Py access) for Pie menus.

- Brecht: Current Cycles roadmap: SSS, 'Ubershader', Displacement, Volumes, and then Baking.

- Stuart Broadfoot will work on Cycles hair closure and a minimum pixel width.

- Proposals are being reviewed for Rigid Body Constraints editing and visualization.

- Sergey will work on tools for more automatic motion tracking.

- Antonis Riakiotakis: will further work on texture paint:

- Campbell Barton now has a 3d printer, he already works with Dolf Veenvliet on good tools to help 3D print designers.

- Ton will work on cleanup of .blend file read/write flagging. This should enable 'template files' for example (like having multiple startups).
