Hi everyone,

Here are notes from today's 14 UTC meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Blender 2.78 release

- Some last regressions were reported and fixed. But we're ready to call for the release monday.

- The release candidate to test:

- Release logs:

2) Other projects and Blender 2.8

- Bastien Montagne will come with new doc about assets, data blocks, linking, etc.

- Blender Institute workshop about viewport was a blast! Mike Erwin, Clement Foucault, 
Dalai Felinto, Sergey Sharybin and Ton Roosendaal participated. (Lubos Lenco had to cancel).

Mike and Dalai will come with a report, design and planning proposal soon.

- Ton will come with a general plan/proposal for the 2.8 project. In short:
Put all efforts on viewport (realtime PBR, realtime compo, new layers, etc), on workflow and 
UI updates, assets/linking/overrides, finish depsgraph, clean up modifiers/derivedmesh (node ready),
but postpone the 'everything node' and hair/particles nodes. 

- The BGE team (active on UPBGE branch) is motivated to make sure BGE will use new viewport and
gets the necessary updates to keep work in 2.8. 

- Best would be if we can get the BGE team work with Blend4web and others to redesign the logic system.
UPBGE team is interested. Let's have this discussion (by contributors) on bf-gamedev list.
