The next major redesign of the Freepository is in the planning stage now. The focus of this release, tentatively scheduled for early May 2007, is ripping out as much of the legacy CGI as possible and replacing it with asynchronous calls to either the database or the repository server.

Ajax? Yeah. But please don’t start shouting web 2.0 or any of the other silly-sexy terms being thrown around by every dime-store startup CEO that walks past. The core application will remain rock-solid on-demand source control, defect & issue tracking, release management and wikis. We’ll apply the UI elements where it makes sense, but where old-school is still best… we’ll be partying like it’s 1999…

If you’re a software developer, you’ll like what we have planned.
