Blender developers meeting notes - May 27, 2016


Here are the notes from today's meeting in #blendercoders

Hi, only a few topics to report on, some discussion about OpenGL that we better move to the mailing list.

1) Current Projects

  • Mike Erwin proposes to switch to OpenGL 3.2 minimum requirement in the 2.8x branch. While meeting generally agrees on this, it breaks building on OSX for as long as we still use immediate mode, so better move discussion to mailing list, since we better take care breaking platform support for too long on branches intended for everyone to collaborate on.
  • Kevin Dietrich is working on Alembic.

2) GSOC Updates
