I Love the concepts and beliefs behind Open Source. I use Open Source libraries, applications etc. all the time. One of the things I have always found a challenge though, is knowing when a new release comes to be.

Not only that, is this a simple point release, a major release or a security release. For the most part I want to stay up to date, especially with the libraries I use, when a security release is made. Currently I play the, I hope I have the most stable, most secure version game. However, I always thought that having a single place where I can sign-up to be informed about releases would be awesome.

Do you have a way to do this or, are you subscribing to a multitude of RSS feeds and mailing lists to stay informed? 

Learn why developers are gravitating towards Node and its ability to retain and leverage the skills of JavaScript developers and the ability to deliver projects faster than other languages can.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
