Dear SourceForge project admin,

Your project will be featured on the front page of SourceForge.net for the week of January 28, 2013 Projects are chosen based on a variety of considerations, such as recent releases, interesting blog activity, or other related things.

Front page features tend to result in increased traffic to your project page, so you may want to take this opportunity to make sure you have the latest project description, screenshots, and project logo.

Also, since I know that several of you have more than one project, I've listed all the featured projects below (in no particular order - the list is random order on the front page), so that you'll know which one, and who you'll be sharing the page with.

Finally, if you're still running the Classic SourceForge, and haven't upgraded yet, I'm sure you've already received email from me about that, so forgive me bugging you again, but this would be a great time to make that move.

If you'd like to have a guest blog post this week, please let me know. This can be something you've already written on your project blog, or new content, as you prefer. You can contact me at rbowen@sourceforge.net

Thanks for being part of the SourceForge community!

This is not critising the old; it is still the best we had so far ... but developing two in parallel is just double work.

heheh... I knew you weren't criticizing the old. Say, I was trying to say I was aware you would like a switch for SF's spotlight. ;)
