René Küttner

Project Name: An OpenGL SceneGraph for Marble

A Brief Description: Marble Virtual Globe is a nice project for working with maps. The software rendering is smart and works very well. However, there are some limitations with the software rendering that hardware accelerated graphics (like OpenGL) solves. This proposal is about a SceneGraph structure that will allow for abstracting the actual graphics scene from the rendering backend within Marble as well as grouping and rendering objects in 3D space.

Ahmed AbouElhamayed

Project Name: Web interface plus service - Simple Project Report

A Brief Description: This project aims to provide insight about KDE projects from one place instead of having to go through 4 different sources. The web service should be able to fetch data from these sources and show them in one place, with the ability to view statistics and graphical reports. It should also contain API to provide the same functions as the graphical interface.

Status: Prototype

Lukas Appelhans

Project Name: Extending Muon to different platforms

A Brief Description: This project is about supporting Muon on more platforms, which means writing backend plugins for it using PackageKit and akabei. While it will give basic support for a lot of distributions, we will discuss, review and improve the current backend abstraction. I will also develop another abstraction layer for creating simple notifiers on whether a system needs to be updated, which can be used e.g. in a plasmoid.

Status: Notifier abstraction done and dummy plugin uses it
