In my last week at the CRP Tudor in Luxembourg, I released the latest version 1.1 of the program.
For me the project is still interesting, but due to work and my studies I will not be able to commit as much time as I did in the last year. To allow continuation of the development for anybody who is interested I decided to move my development from a private SVN-Repository at my university to a public Development-Repository.
For a different project I already worked with GIT and I was pleasantly surprised - once branching is common for you, you don't want to go back to anything else. GitHub is a platform for project development and free to use for open-source projects. The cool thing about Git in general and GitHub in particular is the easy branching and forking. You can fork my project easily and while you develop in your own project clone, you can easily invite me to pull your changes back into my code. GitHub is like a social network for projects and everybody who is interested can clone and fork the project.
In the future I will run two branches, the master branch will be the stable version, which hopefully always works and will always run as good as possible. I will develop on the development branch incase me or somebody else wants to start new features.
