Hi all,

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

1) Release review

- Last week the first 2.74 RC was released. Proposal is to do an RC2 mid this week.

- Bug tracker had a big cleanup! Less than 120 open issues now.

- Important issues that were solved already in the first RC:
  - speed regression in rendering caused by workaround to avoid self-shadowing of huge triangles
  - crash in compositor
  - FBX regression

2) Targets for the upcoming release.

- Projects and schedule proposal

- Sergey Sharybin: the depsgraph might get merged in, but probably only optionally - for tests.

- OpenSubdiv is possible too, according to Sergey.

- Dalai Felinto is in Amsterdam and he's ready for moving things to master. It needs just one more session with Campbell Barton and Sergey.

3) Other projects

- Mike Erwin starts this week on a 3 month Development Fund grant - to work on our new Viewport.

- Julian 'Severin' Eisel will work in Blender Institute for two weeks early April, probably on the custom widget system (and to get some hands-on animation training!).
