Thanks to the Students and Mentors of 2014!

We'd like to congratulate our successful students in the Summer of Code this year and thank them for their work on making our software better for our community of users and developers!
For more details of their work, check out the projects to which they contributed and the mailing list where they reported their progress.
Color Scheme Editor
Aleksandr Shevchenko
Aleksander developed a new syntax highlighting color scheme editor for MonoDevelop.
Extending Shape Capabilities Andrew Davis
Andrew worked on a major redesign of the shape tools in Pinta, which are now much more user-friendly and powerful. Among other things, users can now make further edits to shapes after drawing them  (before, they were immediately "flattened" into the image), and shapes can be seamlessly converted from one type to another (for example, by adding additional control points onto a rectangle). Andrew put together a short video demo, and the code will be integrated upstream very soon.
