We're very excited to launch our newest initiative, the Summer of Code. This program aims to help students enter into the world of Open Source software development. This Summer, allow Google to help you hone your skills on real problems with real programmers. Return to school with some real experience under your belt and some cash in your wallet. By working with some of the most important organizations and foundations in Open Source we think we've put together a program that benefits Open Source, students and computer science. Read more about it and consider taking part!

I'm very happy to announce that the Gmail team has made a nice tweak to their atom feeds, you can now pull feeds based on Gmail label. For instance, if you have a label named "lkml" related to your favorite mailing list and you want to know when something is posted there, you can simply subscribe to https://gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom/lkml. More info can be found in the Gmail help center.

Also, we have a new project that we're releasing. This is the first API example we're releasing here on Google Code. In keeping with our love of Python, we are releasing the Kongulo Google Desktop Search plugin. Kongulo is a spider for GDS that makes it easy to crawl sites behind your firewall. Our hope is that people might use it as a template for implementing new plugins for GDS. The Kongulo Python source can be found on SourceForge.

Happy Coding!
