Hi everyone,
The Shrink TSP program needs to be made available to people on PCs other than Apple.
We have been asked to place it on GitHub, but this site is now owned by Microsoft.
Are there any other realistic alternatives ?

(GitHub is for the C++ source code, but we want to make the binary accessible too).

We also have a SuperBasic version. Have any of you any experience in respect to QL programs via GitHub?

Steve Poole.

Github, even owned by Microsoft is fine. Admittedly plenty people have migrated to gitlab. I'm still there with my pile of repostories. And will be for some time to come.

On github, you can create a release which tags up the source code as it is, then to that you add as many binaries as you like. For example, here's the release area for my Oracle TraceMiner2 utility: - there's release 1.04 as source code and if you scroll down, the same with added binary for Windows and Linux 64bit both.

The binaries do not get added to your repository.

As for QL programs on github, I have some, Jan has some, etc, plus there's the main Sinclair QL area at: which has forks and originals of its own.
