Weekly Blender Developers meeting notes - July 9, 2017

2

Here are the notes from today's 14 UTC meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Blender 2.79 release

2) Blender 2.8

  • There's a tracker for Blender 2.8 issues, but this is currently only open for those who are involved.
    If you need the url or want to know if it's worth adding, ask one of the regulars.
  • Antonio Vazquez reminds us we like to see a (temp) splash for the 2.8 branch. Proposal: we switch every month (on the 1st). Each time one 2.8 dev can select a splash, and selects a splash judge for next month. Before committing, splashes need to be checked by one of the core devs or run it via me :)

3) GSoC and other projects

  • All students passed the first checkpoint. However, some of them under probation. Now is the chance to shine! Want to be involved, join the dev list.

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. >>>>switch splash every month
    In my opinion — better make a pool of approved splashes, which is randomly changing every launch or may be anchoring manually by user

    please do not brake beautiful Blender concept of ultimative customisation!

    PS: 2.78 splash screen in my machine is turned off ~_~
