Overlay/Selection engine

  • New design has been made for the overlay and selection engine.
    • Selection will not be based on GPU queries. This would improve stability across platforms and improve performance.
    • Selection engine will be done on top of the overlay engine.
  • Merged the retopology PR.

GPU module

  • Added technical documentation of the GPU module (in the header files.)


  • New custom ids to improve. Workbench engine already uses this new system.
  • Development of Volumes in workbench-next has started.
  • Fixed coordinate system.


  • Iterate on PR/issues to get the to stable for Blender 3.5
  • Synchronization issues


  • Planning for this year might focus on Eevee-next t have a MVP as soon as possible. This would mean that after the current outstanding work more development time will be spent on Eevee-next.
  • Also requires designs to be more fleshed out.
  • Vulkan and compositor project still needs to be discussed this week.
  • Might need more effort to get more people involved in the development.
