GitHub Reach 1 Million Milestone

GitHub are now hosting one million projects!

According to reports, around 60% of these one million projects are full repositories (shared folders with code spread across multiple files.) while around 40% are “gists” (short code snippets contained in a single file.)

Congratulations, GitHub!

Stay Tuned for a Return to the Old URLs!

Those troubled by the so-called “ugly” Javadoc URLs shouldn’t have to endure this eyesore much longer – Oracle’s Justin Kestelyn has announced that the redirects for SE Javadoc will be rolled back shortly!

“We are working on a more permanent solution; thanks for being loud,” he twittered.
