Weekly Blender Developers meeting notes - July 16, 2017


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

1) Blender 2.79 release

2) Blender 2.8

  • Everyone's very happy with the attention for the 2.8 viewport project! Keep the demos coming.
  • We expect more demos and feedback on the new workspaces, layers, depsgraph, grease pencil, asset manager and manipulators in the coming months.
  • Freestyle for 2.8 - Ton Roosendaal will check with Tamito Kajiyama.
  • Tomorrow the crew will send a detailed 2.8 planning/report, as usual.

3) Google Summer of Code

  • Reminder: if you need test builds, any committer use buildbot to make a build with a patch.
  • In a week reviews for the 2nd evaluation starts. Students should be able to show first working prototypes or tests. Share screenshots or (youtube) videos on your wiki!

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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
