The students accepted into the Google Summer of Code have now been announced. SWIG has been allocated five student slots by Google and we have chosen the following five projects/students which will be developed over the next four months:
"Add support for Scilab language" - Baozeng Ding
"C++0x support for Swig" - Matevz Jekovec
"Implement Perl binding for Xapian using SWIG" - Kosei MORIYAMA
"Objective C Wrapper Generator over C++ using SWIG" - Ashish Sharma
"Director support for PHP" - Miklos Vajna
An abstract for each project is available at http://socghop.appspot.com/org/home/google/gsoc2009/swig
Congratulations to Baozeng, Matevz, Kosei, Ashish and Miklos, we set some fairly high standards for acceptance this year and you have all done well to meet these standards. We hope that your quality proposals will result in useful enhancements by the end of the summer.
For anyone interested in any of these projects, you are welcome to follow the development of them on the swig-devel mailing list - http://www.swig.org/mail.html . Also feel free to drop by our IRC channel to discuss or just say hello - #swig-gsoc on irc.freenode.net.
