A few weeks ago Haiku announced it would once again be part of Google's Summer of Code and finally the accepted students/projects are in. Eight is this year's magic number and we're all hoping they bear fruits. Here's the list of the eight students who will be mentored in 2011's GSoC along with their projects:

  • Dario Casalinuovo - Services server and Contacts files integration
  • Gabriel Hartmann - USB Video Driver for High-end Webcams
  • Sean Healy - Language bindings for the C++ API
  • Nathan Heisey - SDL upgrade
  • Jian Jiang - Add USB 3.0 support to Haiku
  • Jack Laxson - Bâtisseur: a build server for all
  • Ankur Sethi - Port ZFS to Haiku
  • Mike Smith - VirtualBox guest additions for Haiku

Best of luck to all and their mentors. I hope every single projects come to a happy ending and the students stay with the project for the long run.
