Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's developer meeting. Next meeting is Monday,
1 April 18:00 CET / 17:00 UTC.

1) New Features and Changes

About 115 bugs were fixed last week.

* Renaming selected objects in the 3D viewport and items in other editors
can now be done quickly with the F2 key shortcut. The file context menu for
quickly doing operations like link/append moved to F4. (Campbell Barton)
* New copy/paste functionality for any data-block in the outliner, to copy
them between .blend files or duplicate them. (Bastien Montagne)
* The shader editor got a material slot selector in the header, so
materials can be edited completely without the properties editor. (Hans
* Sculpt and painting brush settings have been reorganized, along with many
other small naming and layout tweaks in the interface. (William Reynish)
* Modifiers: add minimum number of vertices to triangulate modifier. (Ish
* Cycles now has an operator to merge images rendered with different sample
range. This cycles.merge_images operator is intended for render farm
scripts, and uses specific rules to combine passes and metadata to works
well for Cycles. (Brecht Van Lommel)

2) Development
* clang-format support is getting closer to finished. There is now
documentation and a script to merge/rebase branches. We mainly still need
better Windows support and some decisions on code style.
