The immense success of the Haiku Code Drive 2008 will enable it to bring onboard four extra students and their projects, increasing the total to 9. In just two weeks the contributions raised amounted to USD $7500, which is an amazing show of community effort. In order to sponsor the fourth student, since it's $2500 per projects, Haiku themselves are adding the final $2500. The four students/projects are:

  • Salvatore Benedetto: BFS stress-testing, UDF port to new FS Haiku API
  • Jovan Ivankovic: CUPS port
  • Yin Qiu: ICMP error handling and propagation
  • JiSheng Zhang: DV media node

Welcome all to Haiku and I hope their projects all come to a good end.
