Hi everyone,

On Monday, GSoC students were informed about which projects were selected to
participate in the program. Here is a short overview of the students who 
have been
selected to work with the X.org foundation:

== DRM Render/Modeset Nodes ==

On a related note, Francisco Jerez (curro) has also been accepted to 
work on a TGSI
backend for LLVM, mentored by Tom Stellar (tstellar). This effort will 
likely bring support
for openCL to Nouveau and could also bring support to r300g, freedreno,

The project list looks pretty interesting, I hope the results will be 
just as good :)
