Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's developer meeting. Next meeting is Monday,

1) Blender 2.8

* Antonio works on grease pencil material previews, bug fixing and other
small changes.
* Bastien works on the bug tracker.
* Brecht works on OpenGL render engine and replacing Blender Internal
* Campbell is on the way back to Australia, he will continue 2.8 work there
after a few days.
* Clément finishes workspace smoke display as far as possible, but part of

working on OpenGL/Eevee bugfixing and polishing.
* Joshua works on grease pencil annotations and RNA improvements.
* Sergey continues work on bringing back Subsurf and Multires fully through
OpenSubdiv, and handles some bug reports from Spring.
