Google FreeBSD Summer of Code 2008 results

The FreeBSD Project is proud to have taken part in the Google Summer of Code 2008. We received more high quality applications this year than ever before. In the end it was a very tough decision to narrow it down to the 21 students selected for funding by Google. These student projects included security research, improved installation tools, new utilities, and more. Many of the students have continued working on their FreeBSD projects even after the official close of the program.

The FreeBSD project has released an update on the (finished/continuing) work of the projects:

  • Implementation of MPLS in FreeBSD
  • TCP/IP regression test suite (tcptest)
  • Porting Open Solaris Dtrace Toolkit to FreeBSD
  • Adding .db support to pkg_tools –> pkg_improved
  • Porting BSD-licensed text-processing tools from OpenBSD
  • Multibyte collation support
  • VM Algorithm Improvement
  • TCP anomaly detector
  • FreeBSD auditing system testing
  • Dynamic memory allocation for dirhash in UFS2
  • Reference implementation of the SNTP client
  • NFSv4 ACLs
  • Enhancing FreeBSD’s Libarchive
