Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Where do you get news about new open source projects ? (

An anonymous reader writes: Now that / doesn't accept any updates, I wonder how the Slashdot crowd gets news about new projects, and even new versions of existing projects. For projects managers, where could you announce new versions of your project, so that it can reach not only those who already know the project.

Freshmeat / Freecode had all the tools to explore and discover projects, see screenshots (a mandatory feature for any software project, even with only a console interface or no interface at all) and go to the homepage of the project. I subscribed years ago to the RSS feed and sometimes found interesting projects this way.

You could replace these tools by subscribing to newsletters or feeds from the projects you follow, but that doesn't cover the discovery part.
