Drupal gets 20 slots in the Google Summer Of Code 2007

Google will be sponsoring 20 Drupal projects as part of their Summer Of Code this year, that's a phenomenal result for the Drupal community.

Thank you to Google for the unbelievably generous support. This represents $100,000 worth of financial contributions to Drupal development, $10,000 of which will be donated to the Drupal Association.

A few of the projects that will be worth keeping an eye on are the Jabber/XMPP integration, RSS/Atom improvements, an SMS framework, and an automated staging environment toolkit.
