Hi Jose, here are two project ideas for GSoC 2020 for the XaoS project.

- XaoS
- Enhance export to support high quality output
- Render very large size images as TIFF files to print artworks as e.g. 1 x 2 metre 400 dpi CPrints. Wide colour gamut e.g. ProFoto and Adobe1998 colour profiles. Cropping/in-proportion sizing. Batch output using previous files in native XaoS format. As an example please see the output option in e.g. Capture One Pro.
- Good knowledge of C++ programming.
- address@hidden

- XaoS
- Support for arbitrary precision
- XaoS currently cannot support very deep zooms because the 80-bit floating point arithmetic used runs out of precision before too long. It should be possible to add arbitrary precision to XaoS using the MPFR library (, or a different one if it is not fast enough to support real-time zooming. See also, in particular
- Good knowledge of C++ programming.

Thank you!

Best, Zoltan
