GStreamer projects in the years Google Summer of Code

So I thought I should compose a list of all GStreamer related approved Summer of Code projects:

A big thanks to both the students and organisations involved.

Special mentions

Not related to GStreamer, but I found two projects I think deserve special mention looking over the approved projects.

The first is a project for OpenOffice to create proper SVG import support, I really hope this one pans out well as proper SVG support in OpenOffice would be a big step forward :
Draw/Impress: SVG Import Filter

The second project I found I noticed for somewhat other reasons, in fact I would like announce the winner of this years ‘Biggest Optimist in the Universe and Beyond 2007 Award’ to this project:
Dirac encoder and decoder.

Considering how long we have spent on getting Schrodinger up to scratch I am amazed that anyone even manage to believe they can create both a decoder and an encoder for Dirac in 3 Months.

Re:Dirac, Maybe he’s just a better coder than you (no offence intended!)

Well as mentor of this project I must say that I’m thrilled to see what will happen. I hope we’ll surprise you =)
