    Service for release schedules of various open source projects

    I have a few open source projects that I try to keep track of - Ubuntu is one of them but there are several other distros and applications where I'm interested in knowing when the next release will be.

    Does anybody know of a service that has this as it's main task? Like possiblities to get a nice calendar overview saying that Ubuntu 13.10 Beta 2 is out tomorrow, next week a fix release of the Eclipse IDE is scheduled, with possibilities to set reminders and so on.

    Its only a few projects that actually announce release dates in advance. Distrowatch weekly news has a list for distros http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?is...30930#upcoming . http://freecode.com/ lets you subscribe to get updates for software when it is released (not in advance).

    Thank you very much ssam - freecode.com seems to be absolutely perfect! Although not exactly what I was looking for I'll marked this as solved given what you say about schedules (only a few projects actually offer that).

    You can also install one of several RSS readers and subscribe to the RSS feeds for the projects that you are interested in. The news streams from open source projects don't tend to overload your senses.

    Of course, that's also an option. Thank you!
