Freeseer: Post-UCOSP Update

The UCOSP program I was a part of has long since ended, but Freeseer is still going strong.

After UCOSP, I decided to stay on board with the Freeseer team as a contributor. Though my role has been a lot less active compared to the UCOSP days, I still get enjoyment out of the occasional contributions and seeing the project mature.

Some updates since my last Freeseer blog post:
  • Freeseer joined Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2012 [1][2]
  • I'm mentoring a returning student, Felipe Vieira, for GSoC 2012 (though so far he's been doing great with almost no mentoring since he's a Freeseer & FOSS veteran)
  • The Freeseer organization on GitHub is now up and running!
  • I've redesigned our homepage and it's now hosted on GitHub (
  • The documentation is also online ( and has its own repo on GitHub
  • We're slowly relying more on the Qt framework and trying to drop other dependencies
  • We're considering rewriting Freeseer in C++
  • Many changes (major and minor, front-end and back-end) have been made in our experimental branch -- the next release, version 3, will be a good one!
