VersionEye is currently tracking ~500K open source libraries. Most of them are library projects you can find on different repository servers such as RubyGems, NPM, Packgist and so on. VersionEye is tracking meta information about these software packages, such as version, license, description and so on. The VersionEye database is accessible via the search field on the landing page.
You can follow each software package by clicking on the “Follow” button. As soon a new version of the software packages comes out you will receive an email notification from VersionEye. Don’t worry. It’s not an email bomb 🙂 If you follow many packages and more than 1 of them has new releases for today, VersionEye will send you only 1 single email with a summary. This email format just changed recently. Now it looks like this:
If your VersionEye Account is setup with GitHub/Bitbucket and VersionEye is watching some of your GitHub/Bitbucket projects as well, the email will include a sublist with the projects where you are using the software package.
Let us know how you like this new email format.
