The Krita printer color management proposal has been accepted into the 2012 Google Summer of Code!
The initial phase of this project will actually begin right now – it will involve fine-tuning the libCmpx interface, looking over the possible areas of integration in Krita, and formulating a game plan with my mentor and the key people involved with printing and color management. The official coding period begins in late May, so there is time at the moment to lay down a three-month strategy.
This project will be a huge undertaking for me, especially since color-managed printing under Linux is essentially on the cusp of becoming a reality. But I will do my best in the coming months!

Judging by all your past similar blogs on this matter, I have plenty of reasons to believe you are going to do a *VERY* good Summer of Code project 🙂
Thanks for making Krita even more awesome!
And thank you so much for your words of encouragement, Silvio. Will definitely be working hard this summer. 🙂

This is absolutely great! 🙂 Krita (in my case windows port) has just gained a lot of interest due to your project. I wish you much luck, fun and learning during this great project. 🙂 I am a designer and illustrator really willing to use open source software in my print workflows. (I know, windows is not open source. But one step at a time 😉 )
And of course, thank you very much. 🙂
Thank you so much for the support!
The goal of the project is to add color management support to Krita in Linux. However, if that succeeds, then it could maybe open up further possibilities down the line.
So you never know – and like you said, the best thing to do is take things one step at a time. 🙂
