NEWS: Sorry Freestyle no merge (yet)

[Bf-committers] Freestyle branch status report May 2012

First of all congrats for the project and your work over the last couple
of years!

Although I understand the need and the users want this in trunk I am a
bit skeptical of the integration.

Basically I would prefer to see Freestyle being implemented as an
external engine rather than hook so deep into Blenders core.
I mean that was the intention of the API, to make exactly that possible.

From a quick look at the patch it looks like its quite heavily
integrated. What is the intention of the ID_LS you added?
Also I don’t see a way to disable freestyle (compile option).

Sorry but at the moment I would not recommend a merge. Basically I first
would like to check if it would be possible to integrate it via the
Render API, and with much less changes to the core.
