3 of my favorite projects made it to the Google Summer Of Code 2008. FreeBSD and Mixxx have previously been accepted for SoC but Enlightenment had been rejected all the previous times. Enlightenment is in for the SoC 2008. W00t!!!
The Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL) on which the e17 window manager is based upon has been gaining popularity among the embedded community as a performance oriented toolkit for low power devices while still being able to retain all the bling bling that one expects from a modern toolkit.
