All the work is now geared towards getting 2.65 stable and released.

Notes from today's meeting in #blendercoders

1) Blender 2.65 Release

  • Release Candidate happened last week. Unfortunately, there's a known crasher when entering edit mode. We'll make RC2 AHOY middle next week.
  • We'll check on status next meeting and hopefully we could make final AHOY soon after this.
  • Only crucial fixes are allowed! Brecht and Sergey will read over commits next week to prevent accidents.
  • No interface strings changes, it'll break translations for the release.
  • Bug tracker is at 68 mark, some release stoppers are still there
  • Maintainers should check if all their new features are in release notes.
  • Artists' help with sample .blend files and better images for notes is welcome

2) Other projects

  • Bastien was working on list_template improvements to make it's possible to have several lists per panel. Review is needed.

That's it for now, thanks everyone!

Does anyone know what AHOY means, by the way?

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. It seems like AHOY means a release before the final release, although I'm not quite sure. Can't wait for 2.65, so many features I might not even be able to play with all of them!

  2. @Bart: tiny typo error:
    "Bastien was working on list_template improvements to make it’s possible to have several lists per panel."
    to make it* possible.

    Bug Tracker down to 68? Awesome :)
    And any removed dependency is a good dependency.

  3. AHOY is spelled Czech greeting. We say "ahoy", written "AHOJ". Our character J preceded OJ, EJ, .. we read as english read OY, AY.
    "Ahoj" is something like a "hi" especially used in paddlers team (the very similar, like a skiing people is saying "SKOL" in Norway or other north countries).
