Yesterday, we deployed the latest version of the CodePlex software.
Donate your advertisement revenue to charity
By clicking just 2 check boxes, any project owner can donate their ad revenues to Habitat for Humanity Int’l. My thinking is even if an individual project only receives a dollar in ad revenue each month, if thousands of projects opt in to donate their ad revenue, that’s a pretty decent size donation.
We’ll report donations on a monthly basis in our documentation.
We introduced a new CodePlex Editor role where this team member can only modify the wiki, for example, no write access to source code repository, no access to edit work item details, etc.
My hope is this will give the CodePlex community more ways to contribute to open source projects, especially in writing documentation for projects.
Editing your own work items
We’ve added the ability for you to edit your own work item content, in case you’ve made a typo or need to update steps to reproduce an issue.
