Hi all, So, the Summer of Code is finished, and I think that the GIMP's participation can be called a success.
Out of 8 projects chosen, 6 have successfully completed their goals, or are well on the way. At least 5 will continue working on the GIMP after the project is finished, as volunteers, and I'm looking forward to them polishing the Summer's work and starting new projects afterwards. All in all, a nice chunk of code, and some new GIMP developers, have resulted from the Summer of Code, and I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we're eager to participate again in future editions, if they happen. Cheers, Dave. Here's a roundup: * Proposal for implementing vector layers in the GIMP Hendrik Boom (Simon Budig) Henrik's vector layer code is now in CVS, and in the 2.3.11 release. There are some other features which are in planning. * New/Extended Brush System Philip Lafleur (Sven Neumann) Philip has worked on gegl all Summer, and his contributions are helping make sure that the GIMP 3.0 will be that bit closer, once 2.4 gets out the door. * Vanishing point cloning Pedro Alonso Ferrer (Manish Singh) Pedro's code is in CVS. He has written some nice docs and a tutorial for the tool. * Healing Brush Kevin Sookocheff (Manish Singh) In spite of a shaky start, Kevin has finished a working healing brush, and will work on solving some of the issues reaining to get it included in the 2.4 release. The tool as-is is in CVS, and was in the 2.3.11 release. * Ruby-Gimp scripting. Scott Lembcke (Kevin Cozens) Scott completed the gimp-ruby bindings brilliantly, and that code is in the gimp-ruby module of GNOME CVS. * Proposal for wavelets-based imaging applications in GIMP Divyanshu Vats (Simon Budig) Divyanshu successfully completed jpeg2000 support, and a number of image filters integrating wavelet transforms. Unfortunately, two of the projects didn't result in success. Save for Web or set of filters Smorkalov Andrey Urievich (William Skaggs) Andrey started well, and apparently stopped work on the project after the mid-term evaluations. GIMP resources repository Lauris Bukšis-Haberkorns (Michael Schumacher) Similarly, Lauris took a vacation after the midterm evaluations, and on his return apparently did not continue work on the plug-in and resources distribution system. -- Dave Neary [EMAIL PROTECTED] Lyon, France _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
