The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program funded by Google to allow hundreds of students around the world to participate in free or open source software.

GSoC is open to students using all kinds of technologies and each year we like to see many projects written in/for the Haskell programming language.

Some possibly useful links:

Achieved Goals

Refactor program with HLint suggestions

My project was refactoring programs with hlint suggestions. I'm counting it as a success but I am waiting for a new release of HSE and hlint before making an announcement. We can apply almost all suggestions from hlint.

Here is a demo of it working

Interactive widgets in IHaskell

My project "Interactive widgets in IHaskell" was completed successfully. We'll be having a public announcement with an online demo on soon.

A Strict language pragma for GHC

Johan Tibell writes: I'm very happy with Adam's work strict Haskell. StrictData is already in HEAD and will be part of 8.0. Adam is working (as his studies permit) of finish the rest. Perhaps if we're really lucky we'll have the Strict pragma as well in 8.0.

As of 2015-11-14 both language extensions (StrictData and Strict) are merged in GHC Head (in time for GHC 8.0).

STM Data Structures Implementation

Alex's excellent work is here and is soon to be uploaded to hackage.

Did Not Achieve Goals

Implementation of Layered Gramamar of Graphics

Last commit was made on 30 June 2015 and the README says

   Working on a implementation of layered grammar of graphics. Work in progress,
   Nothing to see here, Move on.

It may be that this work has been subsumed here but I am not sure how to confirm this.

Improvements For HBLAS And Adding LAPACK Bindings

The last contribution by the student to the repo seems to be 2 May 2015.

There is this but it's hard to judge from it what the contribution is.
