Unless something happen and I get isolated from the internet or I have no time (Never say never) my little promess with blender is that as long as I can I will be developing or experimenting something for it.
There´s to much out there, to much the 3D world have accomplished rigth now and to much to learn and I will be trying to implement as I learn new things to blender. Currently im focused on volumetrics and the experience and knowledge I gain from this project will make easier to tackle another ones, especially in the Render area.
May be some day the render API will get finished and we could easily plug whathever advanced render out there exist but it will no harm to have a powerfull render in our house as the blender render engine 🙂
So there´s a lot to do.
