School has been keeping me busy recently, and I do owe an update on the Synnefo progress. (Which will come soon.)
In the meantime, I would like to announce that two applications have been submitted for the 2011 Google Summer of Code project – both going to the OpenICC organization:
Color Management for the Common Printing Dialog (CPD)
Until recently, the combination of a print dialog and color management has met very little attention in Linux. But given the significance of the current progress being made to the Common Printing Dialog (CPD), and the potential for more users to take printing on Linux much more seriously, there is simply no better time than now to extend CPD to include color management.
This project hopes to accomplish such a task by bridging together the Oyranos CMS with the Common Printing Dialog.
Integrate Kolor Manager With KDE
Kolor Manager (KM) is an open-source color management front-end developed during the 2008 Google Summer of Code. It was designed using Qt and is currently in the SVN “playground” section of KDE.
The goal of this project will be to merge KM into the main KDE repository. In following the required guidelines to complete the transition process, as well as making necessary fixes and feature updates to the program, KM will soon be ready to ship with KDE’s next scheduled release.
Hope to have a chance to help out and tackle one of these during the summer.
