Hi all,

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

1) Blender 2.78b update

- As mailed to this list yesterday; we will release a performance (speed) update for 2.78a. 
A new build can be made available within a week. Here is the branch:

- An open issue is still a much anticipated Nvidia Cuda 8.0 update (for Windows 10 especially).
According to Nvidia the official release would happen this week though. Stay tuned for updates.

2) Blender 2.79 release targets

- An overview of current targets is here:

- Filmic Blender has not officially been submitted for review, we'll ask Troy Sobotka about it.
It's in github though: https://github.com/sobotka/filmic-blender
Main issue seems to be that the filmic OCIO files break compatibility.

- Shadow catcher for Cycles is nearly done, will be wrapped up.

3) Blender 2.8

- Viewport team is a bit behind with coordination. Suggested is to have a dedicated irc meeting.
Dalai Felinto will do a call and schedule a good moment. Join the viewport list here:

4) Other topics

- The developer.blender.org website will be upgraded tomorrow ("Phabricator"). Special attention will
go to preventing spambots to post there.
