You’ve probably noticed something different today if you checked out our main web site… it looks different!
This is a huge step forward for us in being able to truly showcase everything SugarCRM has to offer. It’s been a large endeavor by our our entire company to pull this off, namely our web marketing and internal apps teams. I want to extend a huge “Thank You” to all of them on behalf of the entire Sugar Community.
As a part of this change, we also took the time to make another change. For nearly 7 years now, SugarForge has been the home of downloads for the open source edition of Sugar ( currently known as Sugar Community Edition ). While in the last year we’ve moved the source code hosting to GitHub, we are now going to begin leverage SourceForge as the primary home of our package downloads of Sugar CE. We’ve been providing both full and patch zip packages on SourceForge for Sugar for years now, so the use of SourceForge is nothing new for us, but by using SourceForge as our primary package hosting service we can leverage their worldwide content delivery network to make grabbing packages of Sugar CE much faster than before. You can grab packages for Sugar CE by going directly to our project on SourceForge, or by going to the download page on the sugarcrm.com site.
We hope these changes to go over smoothly, but in case you are seeing hiccups, please respond in the comments below or ping us on Twitter and we’ll be sure to get them address as soon as possible.
