Hi everyone,
We are now officially in 2.82 bcon2 [1].

"Work to improve, optimize and fix bugs in new and existing features. Only
smaller and less risky changes should be made in this phase."

Many features made in the last minute. While it is exciting to see, this is
far from ideal. Not only this adds extra stress to our team (kudos for the
reviewers), it also leads to less tested features. They are also
severely under-documented.

Some of this is due to legacy projects that have been dragging for too long
and organized in huge patch changes. Moving forward I hope we can give the
projects a more manageable structure [2]. We are trying this with VR
(postponed by the way), and the USD project [3] (just in). Things working
well I would like to roll this out to the other new and existing projects.

That aside, great work everyone. Blender 2.82 bcon3 starts in January 9,
2020. Good testing/polishing/bug hunting everyone.
