Fantastic news! Student applications will open on Monday, March 28, 2011 at 19:00 UTC btw. But Digital Mars is still listed as "accepted, but they have not yet completed their organization profile" at http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/program/accepted_orgs/google/gsoc2011

Great news! Although I was astonished to find a Units library in the list, it seems an order of magnitude less useful than everything else. I'm sure we could come up with dozens of more useful ideas.
