Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.70 projects

- Current schedule (not changed since last week)

- Tabs! Jonathan Williamson summarised status of tabs. After lots of discussion throughout the week seems many people can agree on a couple things:

1) tabs should be workflow based when possible. 
2) user should switch tabs minimally.
3) panels within tabs should fit nicely on a 1080p monitor.

He also updated tab doc, showing the larger picture for other UI work too:

One of the most complex ones, Editmode tabs review:

Meeting agrees with moving on adding tabs (following current design proposal) in 2.70.

- Tamito Kajiyama had positive feedback from core Freestyle users about the new Python API for Freestyle - which will break older scripts. Goes to 'git master' this week.

- Jonathan Williamson's keymap project (a new choice next to maya/max etc):
Question: is this acceptable to add in BCon3 still? Might be better 2.71? Final answer next week.


2) Other projects

- Sebastian Koenig shows error in mask rasterizing when mask-curves overlap. Anyone around to solve this well?

- Tamito works on Freestyle textured strokes:
