OpenICC obtained three projects slots for the Google Summer of Code 2012 
stipends. That means three students can work again this year full time 
over three summer months on colour management projects. Thanks to Google 
for organising and sponsoring the program.

Here are in short the projects:

Joseph Simon will continue to work on PDF colour management for the 
KDE/Linux printing stack. To have a real world project he choose to 
improve Krita's printing dialog to include colour management.

Casian Andrej will work on ICC colour correction in KWin using the X Color 
Management spec. That way KWin gets a clear path toward consistent colour 
output on the desktop.

Nitin Chada will work on a different toolkit dependent renderers for a
XForms subset. That standalone project shall enable modules to present 
options inside dialogs or embedded in host applications.

All projects are requested to blog in oder to let us follow their 
progress. The links to the blogs and the code repositores will appear soon 
on the OpenICC GSoC wiki page.

Lets have a successful coding summer and deserve the trust Google putted 
in our organisation and with that in the participating students.

kind regards

PS: summer means nordic summer, that are june, july and august

Disclaimer: coding on open source software can be done as
             well outside of any official program.
