Hi Chuckk,
There's currently a fairly general project idea regarding plugin APIs. If you'd like to amend that one or add a new project 
idea, please make a merge request here:
If you add a new one I'd suggest keeping it fairly concise. That way the students will flesh out more of 
the details in their proposals.
The way GSoC works is that the students choose which project ideas they want to work on. (Or suggest their 
own.) Then they submit an application. Adding this idea to the list will increase the likelihood that someone 
chooses it. You can also try to seek out a student with the skills to complete it and persuade them to apply.

> VST has unfortunately been completely removed from Csound in response to Steinberg's aggressive approach, old CPS seems not to work anymore, and yes, PD's plugin possibilities are unstable. There are Distrho PF and iPlug2 and Faust, but none of these allow hosting, only being hosted. Other than that, to write software that hosts as well as plugs VST, it's Juce or Steinberg's SDK.A few years ago, it seemed like this functionality was cropping up everywhere. Today it has disappeared. I for one would be thrilled to see this happen.

Greetings fellow Pd enthusiasts,
As some of you may be already aware, ast year the Purr-Data (a.k.a. Pd-L2Ork v2) was adapted to support native 64-bit operations. We are pleased to report that Purr-Data was once again selected this year as one of the GSoC projects. This means more opportunities to engage and help further the platform. Ideas for this year are plentiful, ranging from core infrastructure (C) development to patching and front-end development, including porting Pd-L2Ork's K12 learning module that has seen its utilization in dozens of Maker camps over the past 7 years.
If interested, please contact Jonathan and/or me to explore potential projects and to discuss the next steps in the application process.
