Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.79 release

- First RC is out now.

- Meeting discussed web todos wich will be handled this week (now I'm back from LA :)
  - blender.org doesn't advertise the RC well, will need more prominent coverage.
  - a release log should go to blender.org still (and the wiki version needs better images)
  - link to release logs is hidden since revamp of download page.

- A possible RC2 will be checked on in 1-2 weeks.

2) Blender 2.8

- The presentations on SIGGRAPH were a big success! Blender booth attracted a lot of visitors.
Special kudos to the Viewport team and the people providing Eevee demos! Report will come soon.

- The monday kick-off meeting for full-time/paid 2.8 coders will be in IRC tomorrow. 10:00 CEST.
Report will go to this list.

3) GSoC

- Final evaluation ends in 3 weeks. Students should get working (end user level) software now, 
and spend the last weeks on feedback, tweaks and fixes. 
Provide binaries and docs for users to attract testers!
