Blender Developers meeting notes, December 11, 2016


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

1) Blender 2.8 projects

  • OpenGL upgrade: work progresses, no news to mention.
  • Bastien Montagne is testing first override code. Nothing to see yet!
  • Clement Foucault starts this week as full-timer on Blender PBR viewport.
  • More planning/coordination is needed for viewport migration. Will be worked on this week.
  • Current projects page was outdated, quickly updated it.
  • Also this page is outdated.
  • Todo: need a better 2.8 dashboard in wiki or on to monitor activity.

2) Other projects

  • AMD OpenCL development on Linux still gives issues. Jens Verwiebe advises Blender developers to get help in #luxrender irc or their forum on
  • Another todo: update the GSoC page to reflect status of the student branches.

(After the meeting, Willian Padovani Germano offered to help with the wiki todos. Thanks!)
