Project hosting migrated to Google Code

I've been planning to do this for a long time, but finally got motivated enough to move on. Subversion repository is so slow these days on the SourceForge, not mention the really bad usability of the web site. That's a bit sad, because 8 years ago when MicroEmulator has started, SourceForge was a great place to host an open source project. SourceForge has not evaluated much since then, mostly reworking only web UI. In a meanwhile many alternatives has appeared and I finally decided to go with Google Code. It is simple, popular, has fast Subversion repository access.

MicroEmulator project is hosted now at the New SVN URL is

Unfortunately, a fresh checkout of working copy is needed for existing working copies that are linked to SourceForge SVN repository.

To checkout microemulator trunk working copy use:
svn checkout microemulator

I'm trying to migrate to Google Code too. The biggest benefit is being able to create/delete/manipulate your own project without having to get permission from them.

Were you able to migrate over all your revisions?

Yes, I did the repository migration with the whole history.

Here you find some help how to do that:
