Hi all,

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

1) Release targets for 2.75

- The AMD patch (splitting OpenCL kernels for Cycles) is in. Kudos for Sergey Sharybin 
who spent quite some time on getting this to work with the rest of the Cycles code.

- There is a limited set of AMD graphics cards that will work with this, Thomas Dinges 
volunteers to collect statistics the for release log on this.

- Sergey still likes to add the Dependency Graph code in master. It won't affect Blender 
much, but it should be done before we have an official "BCon3" (test/fix period).

- Another last minute feature gets a quick review now, custom icons/previews might make it:

- Current projects and planning:

- This wednesday it's the strict BCon3. No new stuff anymore!

2) Other projects

- Mike Erwin had some OpenGL Viewport tests to share: (improved ways to draw wires)

- Kevin Ditrich is working on OpenVDB:

Kevin will be in contact with Sergey (Cyles) and Lukas (caching, pipeline) to make sure
 things fit in future designs too.
