New Augur Release!

The Augur team is happy to announce that there is a new release available. From Sean Goggins:

This release makes a hosted version of Augur fully enabled. The next release will add to these capabilities by implementing a “fairness algorithm” so that data collection for new accounts is balanced and somebody asking for 1,000 repositories does not delay collection for somebody requesting 10. Further, the next release will consider the size of the new repositories requested when balancing individual user collection priorities. Integration with is also improved, enabling collections of related repositories to be shared by all of the users of an 8Knot instance. 

If you’d like to download the latest release you can find it here.
