Hi all,

Here are the notes for the weekly developer meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders

1) Blender 2.67a review

- Right after the 2.67a a couple of bugs were reported and fixed... especially features that worked in 2.66 before should be in a release.
Proposal is to ask the release team to make a new build this week.

- Campbell Barton made an initial list of fixes of he likes to see included in an update:

- We'll review the list in irc and on this list. These will go in the svn release branch, so we can update a bugfix-2.67 simply.

- Tuesday an ahoy is expected for it.

- Meeting spent some time on a review why this happened, it's mix of bad luck, and too much maintenance work in BCon3/4 periods. In general, keeping a 'stable' branch around and update as frequently as possible is never bad.

2) 2.68 targets

- Dalai Felinto makes great progress on stereoscopic rendering/compositing and viewing. https://github.com/dfelinto/blender/tree/multiview
It's unsure still if this will be ready for 2.68. Code review will start a.s.a.p.

- Bastien Montagne is almost done with Linux OpenEXR 2.0 install-deps script.

- Release target list has been updated, We now move to "BCon2":

3) Other projects

- Campbell and Sergey Sharybin (and others) are testing converting svn history to git. There's also tests going on with Phabricator.

A more formal proposal for git migration is coming, a feasible target for migration is October this year.

- Sergey: The Tomato branch has a WIP feature, mask tracking!
This is not a release target yet, get the tomato branch for testing.

- Leap Motion device seed has started, we wait a bit for it to arrive everywhere. There's a developer from Leap who already added support for the BGE, he will be connecting with us soonish.

4) Google Summer of Code

- Tomorrow 19 UTC Google will announce the official results. Shortly after the http://code.blender.org blog will introduce the students and their projects.
