GraphSpider/MPL website launched

Tuesday, 12 August 2008

Today sees the launch of the GraphSpider/MPL website, many thanks to the folks at SourceForge for the hosting space and support services.

The SourceForge site contains the GraphSpider Java source code repository (distributed under the GPL), documentation, a bug tracker, mailing lists and all the usual open-source community facilities.

All suggestions and other participation are welcome.
