We've been allowed to take part in Google Summer of Code for another year. This is as always exciting and humbling. The Summer of Code is such a wonderful program which always keeps us amazed. So many different things are awesome, from the basic ideas and soul of the program, to the people at Google making it happen, to the mentors around the world, to the students working all through summer.
There's an announcement up on the main Worldforge site with more information. Right now we're in the period where students are encouraged to interact with the community and work on their ideas.
If working on a totally free virtual world system during the summer sounds interesting, don't hesitate: run over to the Worldforge wiki, read up on the program and don't be shy about applying.
