Holidays time still, it was a short meeting in #blendercoders.

1) projects for 2.70

  • The targets and planning.
  • Target "custom normals" is waiting for confirmation, Bastien Montagne can tell more.
  • Also missing is a list of UI work for 2.70 and later. Brecht van Lommel will check on it, Jonathan Williamson offered help (last week).
  • Sergey Sharybin thinks the new text alignment in number buttons is not working well. Brecht and Jonathan could check this?

2) Other projects

No news, apart from patches to review, lots of bugs to fix, and encouraging OpenCL updates for Mac OS X 10.9.2 (in developer preview) - Cycles now compiles a kernel, but it still doesn't work fully... (slow, render errors).

That's it, everyone gets the best wishes for an awesome 2014!

    Brief and to the point. Great holidays to developers and to all of us!

  • Abraham Sewill

    I am curious, how soon will the improvements Apple is pushing go upstream to AMD and effect other platforms (Linux and Windows)? Us AMD GPU owners are hopeful!

  • Andrew

    Please revert the text alignment to the old way. After my last build, I am having a hard time getting used to it.

    • Utopia780

      no no no..

  • Utopia780
