[Bf-committers] Welcome to core profile (Blender 2.8)

Dear all,

As of now, Blender 2.8 builds only with core profile. That means:

* No more toggling CMake flags when switching back and forth from master to 2.8
* No more crashes for Mesa and Apple users getting Blender from builder bot

On a related note, modifiers and dupli objects are still not supported
by the new 2.8 viewport. However you can still use the blender
internal with solid mode to see your data. This is mostly for things
like alembic development, for example. Expect some caveats (screen
effects such as Dof or Matcap won't work, edit mode will crash, ...).

Thanks everyone for the amazing work.

Dalai and Sergey
