Hi all,

Here are the notes of today's session in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders

1) 2.66 release review

- Some showstoppers have been found already:

- A change in how textures use alpha (option moved to Image block), required a do-version patch which crashes for library linking in cases.

- Compositor: File Output node missed socket input menu

- Dynatopo crash in some cases.

- We will check next sunday again, then do apply fixes on the release branch and call for an 'a' build...

- Important note: let's not do cleanups of code now please, except when approved by all involved module owners!

2) Targets for 2.67

- Freestyle, no real news, but final review can start soon.

- Sergey Sharybin worked on (motion tracking) Bundle Adjustment, should be in svn soon.

- Proposal for release planning:

March 10 bcon2 (= targets are defined)
March 31 bcon3 (= targets are in svn)
April 14 bcon4 (= only fixes, test builds and/or RC)
April 21 bcon5 (= release imminent)

3) Other projects

- Antonis Riakiotakis works on subsurf drawing speed improvement.

- Ton Roosendaal suggested to work on replacing GL_SELECT (OpenGL select feature, used for object mode). Too many problems are arising with it now. Could be simply replaced with using back-buffer color codes. Alternative is to do brute-force raycast tests. Might even work surprisingly fast.
