Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.79 targets

- The targets list:

- Reviewing continued last week (for Denoise and OpenHMD), but there's no final result to mention.

- Meeting agrees we should really release early July (benefits SIGGRAPH promotion).
That means early June testbuilds, and early May freezing the targets.

- So, next week Sunday we do another attempt to freeze the targets for 2.79!

2) Blender 2.8 project

- Mike Erwin: all platforms are now working with GL core profile, still plenty of small changes are needed.

- Julian Eisel: Workspace patch is pending review for 2.8 merge still https://developer.blender.org/D2451
Campbell Barton will check on it.

- Work on dependency graph and new modifiers code stalled last week, Sergey Sharybin was needed to 
solve errors with SSS rendering. 
Blender Institute is finishing another short, crunchtime = bugs squashing time!

3) Other projects

- Nothing to mention really, aside of that we will need to do a massive bug tracker fixing campaign soon!
