    8   * '''SVG Filters''' - Implement a platform-independent set of c++ based SVG filters, as detailed in the the [http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/filters.html SVG FULL 1.1 specification].  Currently only the Mac platform has a filters implementation (CoreImage based).  These are disabled in tip of tree WebKit.
    9   * '''JavaScript Debugging''' - Add a javascript debugging tool to WebKit.  Examples could be: 1. memory allocation logging tool  2. Event dispatch watching.  3. A javascript profiler.  Work with a mentor to find a summer-scoped project.
    10   * '''CSS3 Paged Media''' - Add support for [http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-page/ CSS3 Paged Media], or a subset thereof.  Currently we have no support in WebKit.
     8  * Standards Support
