Hi everyone,

Here are the notes from today's 16 CET / 15 UTC meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.
NOTE: daylight saving ended, meeting is 1 hour later! 

1) Blender 2.78a

The 'a' update was released before the conference. 
All fine so far, minor regression bugs were reported. We'll check this next week.

2) Other projects and 2.8

- Follow-ups on Blender Conference will be done by Ton Roosendaal this week. That includes news on
the 101 project, OpenCL, the workflow workshop and about how to get more devs onboard.

- Meeting confirms (and agrees) to move all new development to the 2.8 branch.
That means we give it highest priority to make that branch updated and usable.

- Some decisions then also have to be made, about putting back particles, about BI render, BGE, etc.
This can be kept an open discussion topic for the coming weeks. 
Meeting tends to agree on just keeping most of it for now, including OpenCOLLADA. 

- Last weekend of November is a 'workflow' workshop in Amsterdam, with the core UI team 
and a number of active contributors (half developers, half artists). That workshop can come with proposal for
the feature list of 2.8 (compatibility and breakage). 

Workshop agenda and discussion will start on the bf-interface list this week.
