10 new open source projects you may not know about

With so many open source software projects under way at any given moment, it can be difficult to keep tabs on all that's going on


Open source-focused provider Black Duck Software has announced the winners of its fourth annual Open Source Rookies of the Year. Black Duck used data on open source projects from sources including Ohloh.net. It says it reviewed thousands of open source projects started in 2011. Winners were chosen using a weighted scoring system that awarded points based on commit activity (the number of changes made to the software per day), the size of the project team, and the number of in-bound links to the project.
