Wednesday, May 20, 2009 comeback?

Just when I thought had become irrelevant, I find myself pleasantly surprised at what they've been upto.

Here are a few reasons I think they are headed in the right direction:

* A new uncluttered homepage with a cool infographic:

* They've kept up with the DVCS trend and now support GIT along with Mercurial and Bazaar.

* They deprecated some of their crufty, less-capable built-in applications and replaced them with some great open-source applications on their Hosted Apps service so that they could focus their development time on providing great service.

* Provide direct support via freenode IRC.

* And most importantly, all of the above seem to be a result of the conversations they are having with their users (blog, twitter).
