GNUstep participates in Google Summer of Code 2007

The GNUstep project just announced that it was accepted in the Google Summer of Code 2007 :

GNUstep provides a cross-platform solution for Objective-C/OpenStep/Cocoa developers. This year, it offers various projects for SoC, such as adding new classes from Mac OSX 10.4, enhancing text system, porting WebKit to GNUstep, improve GNUstep on MS Windows platform, etc. It is a great chance for students to learn programming in many aspects.

It's an excellent news ! we tried to be accepted first two years ago if I remember, and last year we were in but under the GNU umbrella... and no projects were accepted. Beeing accepted as a separate organisation should help us, hopefully !

Beside, any progresses on GNUstep will be immediately useful for Étoilé :-)

If you are a student, it's definitely worth a look -- GNUstep is one of the best OO api available here, and a fun place to hack.

update: Squeak is also in ! :-) great news too...

Bonjour, je ne sais pas si tu recevras ce message. D'autant plus que tu te souviendras peut etre pas de moi. Je suis Laurent Rabat, nous etions en 1ere ensemble , a Rimbaud, a Istres. J'ai retrouvé tes coordonnées sur copains d'avant. Je te laisse mon adresse mail, ce serait sympa de discuter plus longuement sur ce qu'on est devenu.
C'est un compte Msn si tu l'as aussi.
J'espere a bientot,
