Small but Significant Changes to Project Pages

Continuous improvement is something that drives us here at SourceForge. We’re always looking for ways to improve our site and service in ways both big and small. In the past couple of months, we’ve made a few small but important changes that we think projects can really benefit from. These changes include:

  • HTTPS for git and svn code checkouts – Now all project developers can make use of the more secure https protocol.
  • HTTPS on all our download mirrors
  • High resolution project icons – Large, high resolution icons can now be uploaded to project pages. While these icons may look the same on your desktop, they will appear a lot clearer and better on phone screens and Retina/hi-dpi laptops, and when zooming in on a page.
  • Support for newer, more secure SSH keys – SourceForge now supports the new ed25519 and ecdsa formats.

We hope everyone will find these new enhancements useful and beneficial. Should you have any inquiries or issues regarding these changes, or would like to request other enhancements, please refer to our support page. We’ll do our best to make sure you continue to have a positive experience with SourceForge.
