Open Source : How Do You Stay Up To Date?

· Web Dev Zone

The Web Dev Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix.  Discover how IT departments looking for ways to keep up with demand for business apps has caused a new breed of developers to surface - the Rapid Application Developer.

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?
