I'm proud to announce that the project have come to it's end with excellent results. For the first time in Joomla! history a GSoC project makes its way into a current release of the CMS (see http://community.joomla.org/blogs/community/1668-first-time-in-joomla-history.html ). The Joomla international community was so exited for adding this feature to Joomla! that I had more than 30 volunteer testers of the software ( see http://languageinstaller.blogspot.com.es/2012/06/help-to-test-language-installer-tool.html ). 

I would like to thank all the people who made possible this Google Summer of Code project:
The mentors of the project: Jeremy Wilken, Jean-Marie Simonet and Marijke Stuivenberg, it couldn't be possible without their help. 
Thanks also to Carles Serrats (Dypsys) because he has been my friend and teacher in Joomla! development for years. 
The awesome people in the Joomla! community that have work in making this GSoC happen: Chad Windnagle, Andrea Tarr, and Elin Waring, Michael Babker, Robert Deutz, Andrew Eddie, Louis Landry, Jacques Rentzke, Matt Thomas, Aaron Schmitz, Chris Davenport, Daniel Dimitrov, Diana Prajescu, Emerson Rocha Luiz, Florian Voutzinos, Herman Peeren, Jon Neubauer, Joseph LeBlanc, Kavith Thiranga, Marius Van Rijnsoever, Mark Dexter, Ofer Cohen, Oleg Nesterov, Prasath Nadarajah, Stefan Neculai, Gabriele and Alikonweb.
