KPI’s for software libraries

Have you seen VersionEye’s new detail view for our software libraries? We just launched it this week.

Enjoy the new, clearer view and check out important KPIs for software developers on the right side. For example, you can see how many days/weeks/months/years ago the selected version of the library was released. Let’s say the current version was released 1 year ago, so it’s very likely that the project is no longer maintained and you shouldn’t use software libraries that are not maintained anymore.

We also have a KPI that shows the average release time. In general, if the average release time is less than 1 month and the current version was released less than 1 month ago, you can assume that the project is still active. You are able to report bugs, change requests and the core committers will reply and help you.

Another KPI for a high quality software library is the number of references. If there are 10K other artefacts referencing a software library it is very likely that the project is great.

We would love to hear your feedback on that. So let us know what you think.
