Have you seen the new "Very Important Pinned Issues" feature on Github?

Quite impressive! They keep crushing it with the recent releases!
Now you will be able to pin up to 3 issues on the "Pinned Issues" list — For those who decide to 'opt in' in the Public Beta of the dashboard.

What are your thoughts on this? Will you use it at some point? I see this feature can be quite valuable in the form of prioritisation of the most urgent/important issues.

Also, it looks like it has been a great year for open source! 🙂

Top topics for new open source projects

These are the non-language topics that had the biggest increase in number of open source projects created in 2018 compared to 2017. Third on the list, dotnet shows that more open source projects are developing apps for Windows. In our programming languages post, JavaScript was the most popular language for new projects, and we see nodejs, react, and vue in the top topics for 2018—all tools for developing in JavaScript. Machine learning is also gaining momentum on GitHub with new open source projects tagged machine-learning.

  1. nodejs
  2. react
  3. dotnet
  4. docker
  5. android
  6. machine-learning
  7. api
  8. ios
  9. cli
  10. vue

By the way, the top non-language topics in 2018 have been a Javascript library and a framework.

All of these improvements only help free software. I’m not totally understanding your point
