Godot participates in the Google Summer of Code for the first year, and we have five students working on exciting projects: Godot Blender exporter; MIDI and SoundFont support; GDNative video decoders; WebRTC support for multiplayer games; Gear VR and Daydream support. In this post, our GSoC students give you an update on their current progress and the next steps for their projects.

Some love for the users of the old stable 2.1 branch: Godot 2.1.5 is still being worked on and we now have a second release candidate. If all goes well, the stable release should only be a few days away.
One of the features that make Godot stand out is how easy it is to use the physics engine for non-physics games. For Godot 3.1, several improvements are being worked on.
After some weeks of work, the new visual shader editor is ready for testing!
