The wonderful folks at Google Open Source Programs Office have finalised the accepted student proposals for this year’s GSoC program. Scribus team is happy to announce that we have four accepted proposals this year and would like to congratulate Vipin Vichattu Johney, Thach Tran, Meetanshu Gupta, and Dhanashree Nellayi Prasad on the acceptance into the GSoC program under the guidance of our wonderful mentors Jean Ghali, Pierre Marchand, Petr Vanek, and Andreas Vox.

Our students will be working on improving Search and Replace functionality, Better Masterpages, Improving PDF Export, and Implementing XPS support. We’d like to thank all our student applicants for this year. We know that you worked very hard on your applications and showed your determination by communicating with mentors throughout the application process. We’re very happy and proud to that you chose to apply to GSoC through the Scribus Team. Good luck and do have fun coding for Scribus this Summer!

We also have a tentative offer from a third party to fund our fifth ranked student. More information will be coming in few weeks, but for now it appears that all of our ranked students will be funded, so nobody goes home empty-handed.
