Hi! It's me again, bringing you another monthly batch of news from Thanks for reading.

Driven by unmistakably clear user demand, we have added support for Git, a
distributed source control system. We feel that Git, accompanied by our
existing CVS and Subversion support, puts us on the path toward a
well-rounded source code management toolset - even if we don't support
every major system (yet.)

We've been talking about our new Hosted Apps offering for a couple of
months now, and it occurs to me that we haven't really told you why we
built it! Simply put, it's because it makes no sense for us to create and
maintain our own developer tools when there are plenty of good open source
ones that already exist. Hosted Apps is how we give you instant,
virtualized access to the best open source development and community
management tools that exist today.

Since our last update, we've launched support for two additional
applications: Codestriker and AN Guestbook. These two new apps, along with
twelve others, are available for immediate use by any project or developer
that needs them - all you need to do is flip the switch. For more
information, see:

You may have also noticed that CVS and Subversion commits are now showing
up alongside other project activity in the Recent Activity box on each
project's summary page, as well as on the committing developer's profile
page. We hope this will allow all you project admins and code voyeurs out
there to get a more complete picture of what everyone's working on.

Those of you who use Piwik, one of our Hosted Apps, know that this web
analytics suite is very useful for gathering information about visitors to
your project's web site. This month, we launched a feature that will allow
you to use Piwik to track activity on your project pages,
too! If you're interested, read more about how to enable this new feature
by navigating to your project's Admin menu and clicking on the Statistics

Finally, to help everyone download the cool stuff you're all building,
we've added new mirrors in Taiwan, Montreal, and Tampa, bringing our grand
total to more than 20.

Have a fantastic month of March!
