Our friends with the C++ Library and Audio Music (CLAM) project have recently announced their 1.2 release, including substantial new contributions to the code base made by their Summer of Code 2007 students. Andreas Calvo Gomez created a new plugin system, enabling third party algorithms to be distributed separately from the core binaries. Other Summer of Coders created several plugins, including an SMS Synthesizer created by Greg Kellum, and one allowing CLAM to perform voice synthesis and analysis by Abe Kazemzadeh. Both Hernan Hordiales and Roman Goj also contributed code added to the project's main repository, working on SMS transformations and tonal analysis, respectively.
Congratulations to the CLAM project on their release, and many congratulations to Abe, Andreas, Greg, Hernan, and Roman for their contributions to it!
