Yesterday Google published the list of students accepted for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) – 2007. Coppermine has been allocated four students which is not bad considering just the first year in GSoC.
The major we are looking for from this project is the strong API for Coppermine. The stronger API will attract more developers from different platforms to contribute.
Then there is a Java based desktop client which will be utilizing the new API to give more powerful tool to users for uploading images to their websites. The client is expected to perform all the CPU eating processes on the client itself.
Next to follow are some of the features to be added to Coppermine’s core.
More details on each project can be found here.
Finally, I congraduate all the students who has been selected for Coppermine GSoC-2007 and wish them all the very best for their projects.
To those who had applied but were not selected, not to worry, we will be back with more projects next year.
