Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's 9 UTC (10 CET) meeting in 
irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.
Reminder: meetings are on Mondays now, next meeting is 04 Dec, 17 UTC 
(18 CET).

1) Blender 2.79 'a' release

- We shall do it sooner than later, the more we wait, the more painful 
it will be.

- We agree again on sticking to safe or crucial fixes only, enhancements 
may be allowed on exception basis provided they are *very* safe and 
simple changes.

- Sergey and Bastien will go over commits in master (and addons), 
prepare list for backport.

2) Blender 2.8 projects

- Clement Foucault did more SSS progress in Eevee this week, next one 
will be on fixing irradiance grid light leaking. Motion blur is postponed.

- Joshua Leung asks for another round of review on the Grease Pencil branch

- Sergey Sharybin has been working on sanitizing flag and dynamic 
overrides evaluation. Next week he’ll have to solve issues of the whole 
scene evaluation when something is changing when having copy-on-write 
enabled (that would imply adding more granular update tagging, which 
then can be used for tools, and make tools to work!).

- Bastien Montagne hopes to merge static ID override in 2.8, otherwise 
will do some side-track work again as last week (release, removing 
OpenMP, ...).

- Weekly reports:
-- Clement Foucault: 
-- Sergey Sharybin: 
-- Bastien Montagne: 

3) Other projects

- Stefan Werner created a branch to finalize his Embree patch for Cycles 
(an alternative ray-tracing kernel, see 

- Campbell Barton mailed proposal to bf-committers about the Blender 
Development Forum Proposal:
