SoC roundup

Hi all,

So, the Summer of Code is finished, and I think that the GIMP's participation can be called a success.

Out of 8 projects chosen, 6 have successfully completed their goals, or are well on the way. At least 5 will continue working on the GIMP after the project is finished, as volunteers, and I'm looking forward to them polishing the Summer's work and starting new projects afterwards.

All in all, a nice chunk of code, and some new GIMP developers, have resulted from the Summer of Code, and I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we're eager to participate again in future editions, if they happen.

Cheers,
Dave.

Here's a roundup:

* Proposal for implementing vector layers in the GIMP Hendrik Boom (Simon Budig)

Henrik's vector layer code is now in CVS, and in the 2.3.11 release. There are some other features which are in planning.

* New/Extended Brush System Philip Lafleur (Sven Neumann)

Philip has worked on gegl all Summer, and his contributions are helping make sure that the GIMP 3.0 will be that bit closer, once 2.4 gets out the door.

* Vanishing point cloning Pedro Alonso Ferrer (Manish Singh)

Pedro's code is in CVS. He has written some nice docs and a tutorial for the tool.

* Healing Brush
Kevin Sookocheff (Manish Singh)

In spite of a shaky start, Kevin has finished a working healing brush, and will work on solving some of the issues reaining to get it included in the 2.4 release. The tool as-is is in CVS, and was in the 2.3.11 release.

* Ruby-Gimp scripting. Scott Lembcke (Kevin Cozens)

Scott completed the gimp-ruby bindings brilliantly, and that code is in the gimp-ruby module of GNOME CVS.

* Proposal for wavelets-based imaging applications in GIMP Divyanshu Vats (Simon Budig)

Divyanshu successfully completed jpeg2000 support, and a number of image filters integrating wavelet transforms.

Unfortunately, two of the projects didn't result in success.

Save for Web or set of filters Smorkalov Andrey Urievich (William Skaggs)

Andrey started well, and apparently stopped work on the project after the mid-term evaluations.

GIMP resources repository Lauris Bukšis-Haberkorns (Michael Schumacher)

Similarly, Lauris took a vacation after the midterm evaluations, and on his return apparently did not continue work on the plug-in and resources distribution system.

Correction: the vector layer code is in its own branch and it is not going to be part of the 2.4 release. It will not be merged to HEAD until after the 2.4 release.

That is not correct, the code is in the soc2006-vector-layers branch in CVS and will not be merged with HEAD before 2.4, since this is such a drastic change, that needs way more user testing before we release it in the wild.

That having said, I am really glad about this project, it works quite nicely already, although there is of course a lot of room for polishing.

Bye, Simon

Does it mean that Philip worked on brushes related code or on other parts of GEGL?

A couple of extra questions

* Proposal for wavelets-based imaging applications in GIMP Divyanshu Vats (Simon Budig)

Divyanshu successfully completed jpeg2000 support, and a number of image filters integrating wavelet transforms.

Divyanshu's blog has no download links, registry.gimp.org knows nothing about "wavelet" and it's not clear if his code is going to make its way to 2.4 or after 2.4, or will be available as plug-ins at registry.gimp.org sometime later. Any updates on this please?

Considered he started well, is there some initial code for others to start from?

Since Divyanshu developed plugins that can easily live outside the core he did not commit his stuff into CVS. I'd very much welcome if he'd make his plugins available soon.

Regarding the inclusion in 2.4: Maybe the jpeg2000 plugin could be included, although it relies on the not very popular obenjpeg library. The other plugins are very rough and still need tweaking, before they could be included.

Bye,
Simon
