About Freecode

  • The Freecode site has been moved to a static state effective June 18, 2014 due to low traffic levels and so that folks will focus on more useful endeavors than site upkeep.
  • Support questions regarding this static site may be directed to freecode@slashdotmedia.com.
  • The site contents have been retained in this static state as a continued path to access the linked software, much of which is on self-hosted servers and would be difficult to find otherwise.
  • Developers seeking hosting or ability to promote their Open Source software should consider SourceForge, as much of the Freshmeat-listed software currently uses that site.
  • Freecode has been the Web's largest index of Linux, Unix and cross-platform software, and mobile applications. Thousands of applications, which are preferably released under an open source license, were meticulously cataloged in the Freecode database, but links to new applications and releases are no longer being added. Each entry provides a description of the software, links to download it and to obtain more information, and a history of the project's releases.
