I’ve been honored recently to be hired by the Blender Institute to work on the Durian project. I’ll still be devoting some time to BMesh, as much as I can spare. I’m not sure what to do about donations; they would still go to BMesh (I’m only here for three months, after that it’s back to relying on donations), but I recognize that others may want their donations to produce immediate work (I certainly try to treat donations as an obligation to code now, not later). Because of this, I’ve decided that I will refund on request anyone who donates during the time I’m here at the Blender Institute, no questions asked.
This opportunity shouldn’t be seen as a threat to BMesh. I think I’ve proven I’m dedicated to finishing this project, given that this is the third time I’ve done it. And to be honest, I don’t think my professional career would survive if I did not. I strongly feel I entered into an implied contract the moment I went public with hemesh five years ago, and no matter how long it takes I will fulfill it.
