Monday evening the students participating in this year's GSoC were officially announced. Pygame was in the lucky situation to get a slot from MoinMoin, so we made it and now have one student to work on Pygame this summer.
Julian Habrock will work on improving 2D drawing in Pygame. His proposal already mentioned several very good ideas, though this did not let him stop to come up with even more that could be realized on time. I'll mentor him and can't wait to see what he'll come up with.
