Count us in! We have a bunch of awesome tasks in mind for GCI 2015. Please forward this to any students age 13-17 who might be interested.
 
We have determined the 14 open source organizations that will be acting as mentoring orgs for Google Code-in 2015. These organizations are developing thousands of tasks that students will be able to choose from in categories including coding, documentation, outreach, research, training, user interface and quality assurance. Students will be able to register for the contest and start claiming and working on tasks when the contest begins Monday, December 7th.  Check out our blog post below and our contest site at g.co/codein for more details on each organization.   

Students you will want to read up on the organizations to see what they do before you start with the contest in December.

We already have lots of Android and Vector Maps related GCI tasks in mind. Let's hope KDE becomes a GCI org again!
 
We will be holding our twelfth Google Summer of Code in 2016! Read our blog post for more information.

The latest Android release of Marble Maps adds support for routing and lots of improvements. Here are a couple of screenshots.

With this release we also switched to an Open Beta. This means no Google+ community membership is needed anymore to try Marble Maps on your device, you can signup at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.kde.marble.maps directly. No change/signup is required if you are a beta tester already.

The coding period of GSoC 2015 has finished and Gábor summarized his project in his blog. Please note that as of today, the beta version of Marble Maps https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.kde.marble.maps has not yet been updated to include all features he mentions in his blog. In particular routing and turn-by-turn voice navigation are not available yet, but will follow once we polished everything for a release. In the meantime please use the current version and expect an update with routing and navigation around August 30th, 2015.

We are not going to stop there; in Randa we will be working on OpenStreetMap vector tile rendering to replace the current image tiles. More details on that will follow.
My honor to announce that Marble Maps has arrived! At the moment it is only available as a beta, but here is how you can get it to your device: Join to the Marble community on Google+ Install Marble Maps from Google Play wit...

We're proud to release our first Android app: The Behaim Globe. Created more than 500 years ago by Martin Behaim today his "Erdapfel" resides in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, Germany and is known as the oldest existent globe on Earth. The GMN kindly made digital imagery of it available to the public.

It has been an awesome week in Randa. Read about it in Sanjiban's blog.
One more Randa Meetings just got over, and even though it has been about a week since then, I still keep thinking about the awesome moments I spent when I was there. Got to meet Dennis and Torsten ...

Here's a summary of our recent advances in vector tiling during the Randa Sprint. Don't miss the pretty pictures ;-)
Earlier today I returned from the KDE Sprint in Randa, where Torsten, Sanjiban, me and 50 other KDE developers met in the Swiss Alps for a week of hacking. Our Marble subgroup concentrated on vector tiling in Marble Maps. After some very productive days we have a first prototype of OpenStreetMap ...

Please keep me informed about the next Marble Café.  My meeting ran way over what it was supposed to and I would love to be a participant in the next one.

The OpenStreetMap file format is quite different from KML. Yet it is possible to convert osm files into kml files. That makes much sense for Marble, which internally maintains a KML alike data structure. Marius took care of all the pesky details needed to make that happen, and added an OpenStreetMap tag editor with sugar on top. Find out how Marble became an OpenStreetMap editor in his #gsoc  summary blog!
As you may know, the Google Summer of Code deadline is around the corner, so it's high time I wrap things up in Marble's OpenStreetMap editor. Firstly, a quick summary on what's been done since the program started, in case...

In his #gsoc  project, Dávid implemented two major new features for #OSM  vector rendering in Marble: Street labels following the course of the road and 3D rendering of buildings for improved orientation. Read the details about that and what else he worked on in his blog!
As time flies by, we are closer and closer to the end of this year's Google Summer of Code. I had a lot of fun and learned many things this summer thanks to this program. My main field of interest is computer graphics and ren...
