Hi all,

Here are notes from today's 15 UTC meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Release status

- No showstoppers reported, all signs on green for work on 2.8 branch.

- We do have WAY too many open or new bug reports. Opportunity for everyone here! 

2) Blender 2.8 and other projects

- Bastien Montagne reminds people to be very careful with committing in master, especially 
when the commit should stay synced with the 2.8 branch as well.

- Target is to bring 2.8 branch to usable level with highest priority. Mostly means to 
solve a way to wrap (black box) the particle system.

- Mike Erwin happily notes that the last call for OpenGL porting help resulted in 
more than enough new volunteers. Things are going well!

- Dalai Felinto wrote a design proposal for Viewport layers:

- Next weekend (Fri-Sun) there's a Workflow Workshop in Amsterdam.
We've invited a mixed group of active developers and artists to help defining the design for 2.8.

Here's the list of participants:

Expect a lot of public reports and great proposals!

Oh! Another article about 2.8 progress code.blender.org will be posted today.
