Most of the projects have been hosted on darcs.haskell.org since the beginning,
and students involved in the SoC continue to help out in the community.
Here's a quick summary:
1. Project: GHCi based debugger for Haskell
José Iborra López
Now part of GHC head.
José was at the recent Hackathon in Oxford, and the debugger continues to
be developed in GHC. He continues to be active in the community and #haskell.
2. Project: haskellnet
Completed, available from http://darcs.haskell.org/SoC/haskellnet/
Recently published a Haskell textbook in Japanese.
Can be found on #haskell.
3. Project: Storable a => ByteString a
Completed, available from http://darcs.haskell.org/SoC/fps-soc/
Spencer's now an active member of the community, and currently working on a
new window manager written in Haskell
4. Project: Fast Mutable Collection Types for Haskell
Caio Marcelo de Oliveira Filho
Completed, and part of pugs.
5. Project: A model for client-side scripts with HSP
Completed, available from http://darcs.haskell.org/SoC/hsp.clientside/
6. Project: Thin out cabal-get and integrate in GHC
Completed, part of Cabal (http://haskell.org/cabal), and the rapidly
7. Project: Port Haddock to use GHC
Completed, and still active, http://darcs.haskell.org/SoC/ghc.haddock/
David also made it to the Hackathon, and is a #haskell regular
These last two projects were not completed:
8. Project: Implement a better type-checker for yhc.
9. Project: Implement a parser for Language.C
Further analysis and improvements to implement for the upcoming SoC will appear
on the SoC website in due course, before the start of this year's SoC.
