I'm sure many people will be very happy about this release. Documentation and source for their implementation of the GL stack. I'm looking forward to read the GLSL code. Great move #Broadcom

Dear all.

Unfortunately, our application for this year's Summer of Code was rejected.

We realise this is a real disappointment. The SoC is not only a chance to get great students, but also gives us all an opportunity for new collaborations, and get more of an an insight into our respective specializations.

But don't give up now !  Many of the ideas that you (the NESCent mentors) posted on the NESCent GSoC 2014 page could easily fit the remit of one of the organisations that will be participating in this year's SoC.

To that end - I've added some links to the bio/science/math related organisations to help you repurpose your ideas if you'd still like to act as a mentor this year.

+Bilal Nizami thanks. It is a shame - evolutionary informatics is not covered by any other organization. I hope we will fix that next year!

Calling all Mentors - it's time to get your phyloinformatics summer project thinking caps on !!

Sign up to post your project idea at http://informatics.nescent.org/wiki/Phyloinformatics_Summer_of_Code_2014 
 
We are starting to gear up for a 2014 GSoC application. Do you develop an open source software package for evolutionary biology? Are there features queued for development that would make a good summer programming project? This is the time to start thinking about project ideas!

Today is the last day to get PhyloSoC project ideas up on the wiki - the deadline for the org applications is tomorrow! We have a pretty small list at the moment, so if you have something in mind, please do put it up on the wiki.

I sense a new GSoC project for Andrew Rambaut to mentor next year !  

Are there any profilers that can demangle overheads incurred by GPU architecture so you can get a better idea of where the bottlenecks might lie  ?

There are some, but we have decided it will be easier if those gcc boys and girls just pull their fingers out!  hahaha!
