This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Our seasoned ranch hands have probably lived through a few major upgrades of our site's software. These are usually announced here in the Ranch Office and we generally try to introduce some brand new features to celebrate the Jumpin JForum Day, which marks the successful transition to a spanking new version of this forum's software.
Apart from these big events, plethora of other important improvements get implemented and deployed throughout the year. To give you a better insight of what is happening during the year, and to give proper recognition to the staff (who are all volunteers) for their incredible work for this site, we created a page where individual releases are listed and described. Enjoy!
