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.

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