Summer of Code 2012 wrapup

[Apologies for the lateness of this. Hopefully it's still useful.]

2012 was another highly successful summer for Google / PSU Summer of Code, with all accepted proposals completing successfully.

The emphasis this year was on projects related to the Weave project, led by Georges Grinstein and David Percy. Weave is a web-based data analysis and visualization platform whose development is centered at University of Massachusetts Lowell. However, several other unique projects were accepted and completed as well. In the table below, the Weave-based projects are italicized.
