I am happy to announce that the perq project has a place in the 2014 Google Summer of Code!

The quick abstract:

This project will continue work from last summer, which hopes to enable a production print workflow suitable for graphics professionals (“perq”). It will do this by extending the CUPS web interface, and modifying its handling of PPD (PostScript Printer Description) files.

In other words, I will be picking up where I left off in GSoC’13 and perfecting the CUPS web interface for per-queue color management printing. The much-needed CM-off switch will be the focus this summer, where an infrastructure is now available to make this feature work for the perq paradigm.

A lot of stuff can get done in three months, so I look forward to finally bringing this project into fruition.
