July 8 - 12
A week full of variety:
- Bug fixes (text overflow, selection evaluation, stereo 3d quadbuffer, multi-object up constraint).
- Coordination meetings (notes on bf-committers).
- Small manual update (fonts > layout images).
- Regular tracker work (another round of design iteration in Snap tools (T66484) and few replies here and there.
I expect most of the coordination duties to start only in August. But next week we will have our 4th coordination meeting where we get to roles and tasks Brecht wants to delegate.
- Patch Waiting for Review
- Fix T66614: Text objects: Truncate overflow for non-top aligned text.
- Fix T64312: Selection inconsistencies when switching collections.
- Updated images on Texts ➜ Layout.
- Fix T66530: set_stereo_3d (pageflip) exists Blender d3e1782abc3.
- Fix T66627: Multiobject Edit UV constraint to image bounds fde88ad9d2f.
July 1 - 5
This week was spent in meetings (3 in total), writing a proposal for the snap tools project (T66484 and a bit of coding. Coding was a regression from 2.7 on cycles baking and a low hanging fruit regarding making duplicated real and the outliner.
- Fix T66327 2/2: Make instance real does not clear collection 784121d62ab.
- Fix T66327 1/2: Outliner dupli empty is shown as collection when a different duplitype 68c39e2b411.
- Fix T63302: Crash when baking normals from selected to active with no cage 50ccbe6bb23.
June 24 - 28
Bug fixes included outliner drawing issues to display children of "hidden" objects (e.g., when filtering only selected) and an issue of objects stuck in non-object mode. Besides regular tracker work like T63302 (simplifying report) and T66132 (nailing the issue).
I also decided to do an test overview of our Python templates - we had broken samples, outdated tooltip, console warnings and bad behaviour (gizmo going opposite direction to mouse).
- Python Templates: Small fix for gizmo custom geometry f5e0ae655e5.
- Python Templates: Update Custom Nodes tooltip 30d65c326aa.
- Python Templates: Silence _MT_ warning in pie menu template 0519bb584bb.
- Python Templates: Fix Operator Mesh Add da25748be7e.
- Fix T65263: Outliner doesn't display selected object if parent not selected 40a1c671655.
- Partial fix to T66126: Non-Active Grease Pencil object stuck in drawmode 7037ff92044.
- Fix T65999: Crash when disabling an addon while its panel is visible a6d2f9ffd0d.
June 17 - 21
I worked in the collections and view layer pages in the manual. Some of the work was to bring what we had (graphs and text) in the code.blender blog into the manual, and update accordingly. I also did a first pass in the panel to get rid of the old layers.
Besides I worked in a regression crash and finally managed to work in the collection UI in the viewport. We haven't yet solved how to display hierarchy there, as well as to make the 1-10 beaviour sane. I'm yet to hear from other developers, but I'm happy with the result so far.
- Patch Waiting for Review
- Fix T65999: Crash when disabling an addon while its panel is visible.
- Collections viewport UI: show only non-excluded and hierarchy depth.
- Rename: Save custom Studio light > Save Custom Studio Light dbd3d764474.
- Move to Collection: Fix tooltip e73647bf5b4.
June 10 - 14
I started this week getting my pipeline for editing the manual up and running. My original pipeline involved live-editing in vim, however it was out (2014) and many things changed since. So I gave up on it and found peace in a vs-code centric pipeline.
This aside I worked mostly in the Outliner manual page (committed), and in the tracker. I really only fixed a simple bug (measure addon), while I spent more time there assigning, reproducing and closing reports.
- Fix T65795: MeasureIt addon: measure disappear when I exclude collection dccf8a46.
- Fix T65641: Move to collection - arrow keys work in the opposite direction f51de2246c7 by mano-wii.
- Manual writing within vs code
June 3 - 7
Fixed outliner bugs (crash and drawing), improved the behaviour of the 1-20 operator (still wants to improve that further) and fixed an issue with files saved in edit mode in some obscure corner cases.
I also spent time investigating an issue with tools and multi-windows (T63694). I was able to identify what is the issue, and Campbell suggested a plan of action. I haven't tackled it though.
- Fix T65420: Crash in file saved with edit mesh 6a155646823.
- Collections: Never change the collection views visibility when unhiding it e70428c80e4.
- Tooltip: Fix use_preview_range tooltip (OpenGL > View) dd81efa4a34.

- Outliner: Fix drawing of collection with disabled parent fa24ec41aaf.
- Fix T65448 - Outliner - Show all inside in disabled collection crash c39a8657be6.
May 27 - 31
Bug fixing - work in collection like preventing users from setting master collection flags, fix stats info for instances, crash on selection. I also spent some time on the tracker itself, testing bugs, replying, closing.
Besides, walk mode is now using the fancy icons for its shortcuts. It is nice to expand its usage beyond the tools only.

- Fix addon (btrace) to use latest depsgraph API 178738ed.
May 20 - 24
Bug fixing week, and API cleanup.
For the API it included using the new
toggle keyword for the new visibility panel, and remove _base_ from users entirely (simplifying scripts that need to override context).
For bugfixing there was some bugs I introduced in recent commits, but also a sequencer crash, auto-preference saving for theme reset and a few outliner/collection related issues.

May 13 - 17
More work on the outliner user interface - graying out states based on hierarchy, better tooltips, and Shift + Click for objects properties.
Also worked on a panel for object visibility settings in the Properties editor. It is a bit tricky/hacky to get this right, but I have a working version waiting for review in [D4889].

May 6 - 10
Finished the outliner visibility changes patch:
- Granular restriction visibility toggles.
- Expose layer collection "holdout" and "indirect only".
- Set children (shift+click) fully working.
- Isolate (ctrl+click) fully working, and toggleable (if you try to isolate a collection already isolated it toggles between isolate and "show" all).
Note: We need to define what do we want to do with the non-object visibility icons (e.g., modifier, bones). Right now they are in the same column as viewport visibility, but I suspect we may want to shuffle this around or at least make sure they use the same icons as collecions/objects.
- Outliner Visibility Update b1af6820015.
April 29 - May 4
Finished and committed the refactor/cleanup in the object/object base flag. Small tweaks (UI) and fix (unlink operator not working for children in outliner). But the core of the work was in the (still local, and work in progress) outliner visibility implementation - T651578:
- Outliner: Fix "Unlink" not working for parented objects b7277aac728.

April 22 - 26
Fixed and refactored the outliner parent patch which is now committed. Besides I spent some time on a needed refactor on the object and base flags (i.e., getting rid of BKE_scene_object_base_flag_sync_from_object, and sanitize the use of ED_object_base_select). Once this is ready this will fix T63343, but for now I'm keeping the commits local.

Another bug fixing week. I started with some stereo drawing reported regression bugs, got a bit caught up on it (fixed some 2.79 bugs even :/), and moved to grease pencil pinning. This was severely broken and bit beyond the greasepencil team's expertise (Antonio Vazquez asked to look at this).
I then moved on to fix a workspace high priority bug -T57655. I end up spending my time preparing the terrain - fixed 2 bugs, submitted patch for 2 more workspace issues - but being able to tackle the bug itself yet.

February 11 - 15
The main fix of this week was outliner and object data. While fixing the crash, I refactored the logic for outliner and obdata clicking. We now switch the active object, and always go to the edit/pose mode expected. Also addressed the bug with high priority that I was more comfortable with (crash switching workspaces) beside sorted fixes (bake action, rigid body data missing).
Finally we had a design meeting about outliner, collections and visibility. William Reynish wrote notes and an initial proposal here: T61578.
- Fix T61512: Crash switching workspace with fullscreen area eff3728db91.
- Fix T61210: Crash/inconsistency when clicking on obdata in outliner 2b7752fb007.
- Fix T61567: Object loose its rigid body data when moving to collection f5ac1f444b6.

- Fix: objects in outliner cannot be disabled 69f50e6ea98.
February 4 - 8
I wrapped up and committed the outliner visibility unification. The rest of the week was spent polishing up the visibility functionality:
* A few bug fixes (not change linked ID data). * New functionality (H, Alt+H in the outliner unified for objects and collections). * Isolate object.
A lot of the polishing was based on Julien Kaspar feedback, on behalf of the Blender Animation Studio and William Reynish.
- Outliner visibility: Prevent changing linked objects and collections 191b8951f7a.
- Outliner Visibility: Alt+H operator to unhide all objects and collections e04d6794d01.

- Per view-layer collection visibility 3d984aa1503.
- Fix T61204: Can't select Camera in stereoscopy mode d1ef6be4a77.
January 28 - February 1
Besides some minor triaging on tracker, I finished the outliner visibility patch.
* Not rebuild depsgraph on visibility change (only on disable collections). * Expose all options (isolate, hide/show, hide/show hierarchy, enable/disable) to a context menu in outliner. * Support drag & drop
It should be merged as soon as it is reviewed.
January 21 - 25
More bug fixes on stereo (Cycles rendering, image editor), freestyle rendering and small UI polishing. Apart from that I spent the time working on the outliner visibility patch. There are still a few things missing, which I want to address the following week. But this week I tackled:
* From review: Ctrl + Click to isolate collection * From review: Alt + Click to disable visibility * From review: hide > disable
- Fix T58142: Crash when use Cycles to render stereoscopy 699b49e8e9d.
- Fix Freestyle (ASAN detected) crash fa1d5586a1a.
- Fix T60775: Stereo drawing in image editor broken (shows only right eye) d96f1fcd394.

January 7 - 11
Stereoscopy 3d drawing is fixed in the viewport, and the stereo 3d support elements are back:
* Cameras * Convergence Plane / Alpha * Stereoscopy Volume / Alpha
Initially what was broken was simply the drawing of the stereoscopy 3d for converging cameras. This issue was introduced with copy-on-write. With this fixed and out of the way, I decided to port the viewport stereo element drawings since we never prioritized that.
- Viewport: Stereoscopy drawing is back ce3475f7479.
- BKE_camera_multiview_model_matrix: Add _scaled version ba89b69ebdb.
- Drawing API: shgroup_instance and shgroup_instance_alpha clarification 9f6e09bd8c1.
