Hi all,

Here are the compiled notes for this week's development. For the complete
report with modules and projects updates, links and more read it on:

* Blender 2.83.19 LTS and 2.93.8 LTS have been released [1]
* Blender will no longer stick to the VFX Reference Platform [2]
* Blender Studio announced Project Heist, a High-end Cinematic 
Experience [3]
* The triaging team focused on tackling the report backlog (already 
decreased by 200 now). Further improvements are expected with Omar Emara 
joining the team as part time triager (part time dev). And there is even 
extra room in the triaging team for people with Blender technical 
expertise. (Philipp Oeser)

Proxy Removal
Proxies have been deprecated since Blender 3.0, but their internal 
evaluation/management code was still there, and it was still possible to 
keep using existing proxies defined in older versions of Blender.
They have now been fully removed. Existing proxies are converted to 
library overrides as best as possible.
For more details, please see T91671 [4]
