Rob worked last year on a Ghemical plugin for Bioclipse (see this interview in Dutch). The architecture for doing calculations (the Compute plugin) is still being used within several other plugins. This year I got assigned two students: one for Bioclipse and one for Jmol.
I have no idea at this moment what ideas the students picked from the lists in the wikis (see the Jmol project idea and Bioclipse idea lists). There is a meeting scheduled in the 25th.
The ideas include:
If you have a suggestion, it would be much appreciated if you can add that to the wiki pages linked above. Make sure to leave a comment to this blog item too, announcing the new idea!
