Geany switched to Git

October 10th, 2011

We're happy to announce Geany just switched from
Subversion to Git as
the Version Control System used for source code management. The primary source
repository also moved from SourceForge to

We think and hope this will make future development easier for everybody and
improve collaboration with the community.

The new Git repository can be found here : Of
course the mirror on is still
available and now mirrors the official Git repository as well as does the mirror. You can follow the
updated instructions on the Git page to
clone the new repository or fork it on GitHub.

A backup of the old SVN repository can still be found at for anybody interested.

Finally, we'd like to thank Jiří Techet for the wonderful work he did on
converting the SVN repository to Git, and Matthew Brush for the great help on
setting up the GitHub repository. Thank you guys!
