CodeSnip Source Code Repo Moved

Following the announcement earlier this year that GoogleCode was about to close, it has been necessary to move CodeSnip's Subversion source code repository to another host.

It was my original intention to bite the bullet and convert the repo from Subversion to Git and move it to join my other code on GitHub. However, that has proved to be too ambitious in the time I'm willing to spend on it, so I've decided to stay with Subversion, at least for now.

EDIT: The move to Git has now happened - see this later post.

So it seemed logical to move the source to SourceForge, because that's where the release binaries and ticketing system are hosted.

The move was completed earlier today. The old GoogleCode URL still works for now (and will do for the rest of 2015), but now a simple page is displayed that redirects the user to SourceForge. This means that some URLs published in CodeSnip documentation will now be out of date. I'll correct these in future CodeSnip releases, but for now please be aware.

CodeSnip's SourceForge page is here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/codesnip/ and you can get into the Subversion repo from there.

Up to date info on compiling CodeSnip can be found in the CodeSnip Compiling & Source Code FAQ.
