Google Summer of Code 2012 Results
Aug. 29, 2012, 6:55 p.m.
The Google Summer of Code 2012 program is now officially over. We’ve managed to have 3 out of 5 projects successfully completed by our awesome students.
- Jan Pulmann created Python bindings for lib2Geom, the computational geometry library we use in Inkscape.
- Samuel Chase made a lot of internal improvements to handling guides and to the coordinates system, making it easier to switch away from Cartesian system.
- Veronika Irvine created a new tool for on-canvas tessellation.
The code for 2geom library was written in the main development branch and hence is immediately available to all 3rd party developers. The changes to Inkscape have to be finalized before they can enter the main source code repository. Currently we don’t expect both of the new Inkscape features to be used in upcoming v0.49.
