JFrog Unveils Industry's 1st Social Software Distribution Platform
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jan 15, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
JFrog (www.jfrog.com), the company that's revolutionizing the way
software is built, announced today the availability of Bintray, the
industry's first social platform for storage and distribution of
software libraries. Bintray is the new way for developers to publish,
download and share software across one unified community around the
world. The free, cloud-based platform empowers developers to control
and streamline the entire process of making software libraries
publicly available, with all the services needed to collaborate,
advertise and deploy a new software solution.
"Created by developers, for developers to ease the pain of the
software distribution process, Bintray is the holy grail that has
been missing from the software lifecycle," said Yoav Landman, Chief
Technology Officer at JFrog. "For the first time, we have an open,
interactive platform that strengthens the relationship between the
software publisher and the consumer community and amplifies the
Key benefits of the public beta include:
-- Support for Major Repository Formats: Yum, Debian and Apache Maven are
all supported out of the gate, and JFrog will continue expanding its
network of supported software library types.
-- Community Wisdom: Bintray makes peer experiences and tips, consumer
feedback, statistics and rankings easily obtainable.
-- Easy to Use User Interface: Open and interactive, Bintray leverages
user libraries that can be stocked with binary downloads, followed by
other users and shared within the community.
-- Lightning Fast Content Delivery Network (CDN): The platform is highly
available and optimized to deliver high-performance downloads.
"In today's world, no one consumes anything without listening to the
community voice first, and the same goes for developers," said Shlomi
Ben Haim, CEO of JFrog. "Bintray is the first platform that offers a
social hub to host and distribute binaries, and it is JFrog's natural
next step in revolutionizing the way binaries are consumed and
distributed. With JFrog 's first product Artifactory, we've changed
the way binaries are sourced and managed; now we're improving the way
they are published. Not only will this community vehicle improve the
distribution of software packages, it will also improve the
distribution of information. We are living in a 'crowd-era' and the
time has come for developers to have a voice!"
