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
* 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.
We are sorry that 2 students didn’t make it, and we are going to take
steps to avoid this kind of failure in the future, should we be
accepted for the next runs of the program.
