Great news! JabRef got accepted as an open source organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code (GSoC). The goal of this annual program is to give university students opportunity to learn about and get involved in open source development. Students will work three months on a project for an open source organization and are mentored by members of the project. It is a great honor for JabRef to be part of this program for the second time.
From March, 29 until April 13, 2021, students can apply for participation in the GSoC. Interested students are invited to have a look at our list of possible project ideas or suggest their own projects. We are looking forward to introducing students to the open source community and provide guidance while they work on a real world open source project during their summer break from university.
In the meantime, we continue to work hard on the upcoming 5.3 version.
Stay tuned for further updates!
