Supporting the cause that software developers are not different from others, JFrog has unveiled Bintray, calling it the industry’s first social platform for storage and distribution of software libraries. It allows developers to publish, download and share software across one unified community globally.

According to the company, Bintray is a free, cloud-based platform assisting developers to control and unifying the process of making software libraries available publicly. It comes with all the services needed to collaborate, advertise and stationing a new software solution.

“Created by developers, for developers to ease the pain of the software distribution process, Bintray is the holy grail that has been missing from the software lifecycle,” said Yoav Landman, Chief Technology Officer. “For the first time, we have an open, interactive platform that strengthens the relationship between the software publisher and the consumer community and amplifies the developer identity.”

The intention is to continue to make life easier for developers, he said. “Bintray is about serving your binaries to the world. It’s all about taking control.”

Key advantages of the public beta include:

  • Support for Major Repository Formats: Yum, Debian and Apache Maven are all supported from the beginning, and JFrog will continue beefing up its network of supported software library types.
  • Community Wisdom: Bintray makes looking for experiences and tips, consumer feedback, statistics and rankings easily achievable.
  • Easy to Use User Interface: This platform is open and interactive. It influences user libraries that can be stocked with binary downloads, followed by other users and shared within the community.
  • Lightning Fast Content Delivery Network (CDN): It is highly available and optimized to deliver high-performance downloads.

“We want to create an open platform which will allow developers and anybody consuming software to distribute and consume software much more widely,” said Landman. “We want to be the best way to know what to consume, and for developers, the best way to deliver software.”
