Hi all. This April’s status report is gonna be short and sweet. The bulk of my time went toward Google Summer of Code student selection. I’m delighted to announce that we have thirteen great students working with us this summer (twelve with Tor and one with the EFF)! This is twice as many as last year, so it will be interesting to see if we can manage it.
This concludes the bulk of my work as the org admin, so this next month I should be able to focus back on writing sweet, sweet code.
And last but not least, bit by bit I’ve been picking away at a feature branch for Stem. It’s not quite ready yet, but expect an announement and a new Stem release sometime in May. One improvement that *is* now available though is the following:
- The connection module’s connect_port() and connect_socket_file() functions have been deprecated in favor of a new, slicker connect().
This new function is quite a bit smarter about the error responses it provides, and is more intuitive to use.
