Despite an unusual amount of snow wreaking havoc across Seattle and no one able to make it to the office, we were still able to deploy the latest version of the CodePlex software on Thursday, Dec 18, 2008, our last deployment of the year.
Just go to CodePlex.com or any non-project page to check out the new look.
Personal Project URLs for projects
We’re introducing a shorter, more personal URL for projects, where your project name comes first, in the form of <projectname>.codeplex.com. You can now do http://xunit.codeplex.com alongside http://www.codeplex.com/xunit.
Note that you’ll still see us use the longer format throughout the site right now. We have plans to switch over to the new version in upcoming releases.
Bookmark source code files once again
Using the new source control browser, you can once again bookmark specific files.
Issue Tracker performance updates
We’ve done some work to improve the performance of the issue tracker. We’re hoping you will notice the difference.
Increased File Sizes for Releases
You can now attached files of 250mb in a release.
Okay, we’re not really responsible for this one. Across the water is Seattle, but even on a non-snow day, you couldn’t see the city anyways =D
