Blender Developers meeting notes, September 18, 2016


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

1) Blender 2.78 RC2

Based on tracker reporting and further testing we either do a RC3 or the actual release this week. Sergey Sharybin and Bastien Montagne are monitoring it closely.

2) Other projects and 2.8

  • Currently Blender for OSX links to an Apple system library for quicktime (qtkit). This has been deprecated for long, and will be removed from XCode 10.12. We have to decide if we want to drop this, and make Blender for OS X use ffmpg for all codecs.
  • Julian Eisel uploaded custom manipulators patch for review. The code docs are here.
  • Mike Erwin is in Amsterdam, with Dalai Felinto and others he will do design sessions on the 2.8 viewport. Expect interesting logs and docs!
