3 GSOC projects approved, that's great! Thank you students for applying for a project, should be some interesting new functionality/features developed over the summer. Thanks to all the mentors for stepping up and volunteering their time and Henry for shepherding the gsoc process (as well as being a mentor).
I encourage our user base to engage with the students if they have interest in a particular project. If you have ideas, problems, or suggestions for features please discuss with the student (on the list is great). Exposing the mentees to how ZK based software is used in real life production environments will allow them to build a better product.
