Look forward to an announcement next week about our Google Summer of Code students who will be working with us. We're very fortunate that Google has generously sponsored eleven (11) SoC stipends. As you can imagine, this means a lot of coding will get done this summer!
Update: See PlanetSoC for the latest news and progress on Summer of Code projects.
