A Brief History of SourceForge, and a Look Towards the Future

SourceForge - Sáb, 06/02/2018 - 23:53

We have always believed that the FOSS community is best served when there’s a greater number of options for viable, trustworthy online destinations for sharing and collaborating on open source software development.

With that said, we’d like to highlight the value we believe SourceForge brings to the open source landscape. Today, SourceForge serves over 100 million software downloads per month, is visited by over a million users per day, and is home to 3.7 million registered developers.

To give a little history, SourceForge was founded in 1999, and in the nearly two decades following has been serving the open source community as one of the world’s largest open source software repositories. SourceForge was most recently acquired in 2016 and the new SourceForge team has been working extremely hard to improve the SourceForge experience for both developers and end-users. The very first thing we did after acquiring SourceForge two years ago was remove bundled installers from projects, a move universally applauded in the developer community. Since then, further improvements have included:

What’s Next?

This year, we’ll be announcing new features including vast improvements to our suite of developer tools.

One of SourceForge’s main strengths has always been our ability to empower open source software developers to reach a huge amount of potential end-users through our powerful software distribution capabilities. We’re the first large-scale open source software repository on the Internet, and in the last two decades have seen history made with our tools several times. Paradigm-shifting technologies like Bitcoin were first developed on SourceForge.

Why SourceForge?

We have the most robust search and discovery system of any open source repository on the web, and offer an unparalleled experience for end-users looking for software binaries they can download and install with the click of a button. We’re talking about a destination for end-users to find and download and install the software they need, similar to an App Store but for FOSS. GitHub and SourceForge are both great for developers, but for the layman, non-technical, end-user, SourceForge is much easier to find and install a project.

On the developer side, we provide detailed download statistics and versatile mailing lists to project admins. We also offer developers the optional ability to display user reviews on their project page. In addition, we’ve recently improved the detail and granularity of the statistics we provide project admins with significantly. Our powerful software search and discovery tools are now much easier to use, with all project categorization types now available as filters on the left side of the Directory pages. 2018 will see us further improve on these capabilities.

Regarding GitHub

Another feature we’ve built is a GitHub Importer tool that will import your GitHub project to SourceForge and sync your GitHub project file releases on SourceForge. We’ve already seen a huge surge in projects being imported to SourceForge from GitHub in the last few days. You can use it as a one-time import, or it can continue to use GitHub but use our importer to keep your releases updated on SourceForge as well, so you can take advantage of the strengths of both platforms. Again, we believe the open source community is always better served when there are multiple options for open source projects to live.

June 2018, “Community Choice” Project of the Month – Cosmic-OS

SourceForge - Vie, 06/01/2018 - 06:05

For our June 2018 “Community Choice” Project of the Month, the community elected Cosmic-OS, an AOSP-CAF based custom ROM with full Substratum support. Founder and Lead Developer Sagar Shah shared some thoughts about the project’s history, purpose, and direction.

SourceForge (SF): Tell me about the Cosmic-OS project please.
Sagar Shah (SS): Cosmic-OS is a custom aftermarket firmware distribution for Android Devices.

SF: What made you start this?
SS: I started this project due to my curiosity of learning new things. Development became my hobby and helped me to learn many new things.

SF: Has the original vision been achieved?
SS: No, the original vision is still [yet to be achieved]. We have a good userbase now, but we still need to bring new things for our users to make Cosmic-OS fully unique and innovative.

SF: Who can benefit the most from your project?
SS: All our users who use old, buggy software in their Android Device can use Cosmic-OS and can experience the change in their phone. People can taste stable Android Oreo with lots of customisations as well as stability.

SF: What core need does Cosmic-OS fulfill?
SS: The need for an up-to-date software and lag-free OS for smartphones. 50% of Android users use old versions of Android with lags. We try to change that scenario.

SF: What’s the best way to get the most out of using Cosmic-OS?
SS: One can install our OS and if he faces any difficulties, he can join our Google+ Community or Telegram Community Group for a friendly discussion with us. This way, he/she can achieve the most out of Cosmic-OS.

SF: What has your project team done to help build and nurture your community?
SS: We have tried our best to maintain more and more devices as possible. Once the OS was available for more devices, we automatically improved and expanded our community. We also have a telegram Channel where we post updates about changes and updates for new devices in a very basic yet effective manner. People can get notified with all the updates in Cosmic-OS via just one channel.

SF: Have you found that more frequent releases helps build up your community of users?
SS: Yes, Weekly updates attract more users and help us build a better userbase.

SF: What was the first big thing that happened for your project?
SS: Cosmic-OS was selected as Sourceforge Project of the Week thrice, which was a big thing for us. Recently, XDA officially reviewed Cosmic-OS in their YouTube channel which is the best thing that happened for our project.

SF: What helped make that happen?
SS: All the credit for it goes to our awesome community and users. Without them, we couldn’t have come this far.

SF: How has SourceForge and its tools helped your project reach that success?
SS: Sourceforge has provided us with free file hosting which helped us with our resources problem. Sourceforge gave our project a major boost, and allowed us to give multiple updates in an organized manner.

SF: What is the next big thing for Cosmic-OS?
SS: We will try to work as hard as possible and will add more unique features to it. This way, we will make our community even bigger and worth exploring.

SF: How long do you think that will take?
SS: It may take weeks, months, or even a year. But we won’t stop. We will keep working for this project and will surely achieve our dream in the future.

SF: Do you have the resources you need to make that happen?
SS: We have Sourceforge which helps with our Hosting issues. Build servers can be an issue in the future, but I am sure we will be able to tackle it. To maintain a big project, one has to invest some of their resources and time.

SF: If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently for Cosmic-OS?
SS: If I had to do it over again, I would not do the same mistakes I did earlier when I was learning. In its initial phase, Cosmic-OS wasn’t as good as it is right now. [It’s become this good] thanks to the experience I got while working on this project for 1.5-2 years.

SF: Is there anything else we should know?
SS: There are lots of YouTube videos about Cosmic-OS for different devices which shows Cosmic-OS in action. People should watch them to get an idea about our project. Our main aim is to create a community where people can have a friendly discussion and can #ExploreTheCosmos with us! (Yes, #ExploreTheCosmos is our tagline)

Today in Tech – 1996

SourceForge - Mié, 05/30/2018 - 06:17

On this day in 1996 telecommunications company AT&T held a meeting to announce a system that would allow people to make and receive video phone calls through computers. For years prior the company along with several others had developed videophones, also known as picturephones, but never achieved the broad adoption they were hoping for due to the high price of videophone units and services. Their new system used Intel’s Pentium processors and compression software to allow both video and audio information to share a phone line instead of using a high-capacity ISDN, T-1 or T-3 line.

Today in Tech – 1995

SourceForge - Mié, 05/23/2018 - 06:15

On this day in 1995 Sun Microsystems Inc. officially announced the programming language Java and its accompanying Web browser HotJava to an audience at the SunWorld ‘95 convention. Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that was intended to let application developers “write once, run anywhere,” which meant that compiled Java code could run on any supported platform with no need for recompilation.

Java was originally developed by Canadian computer scientist James Gosling at Sun Microsystems, and was officially released in 1995. As of 2016, it is considered one of the most popular programming languages in use, with a reported 9 million developers using it worldwide.
