Google Code is to join the long list of Google projects that have been consigned to the dustbin of history. The open source project hosting service will no longer be accepting new project submissions as of today, will no longer be accepting updates to existing projects from August 24, and will be closed entirely on January 25, 2016.
Now’s the time to find a new home for any projects you still have on Google Code. If you depend on any projects that are only on Google Code, make sure you have a plan, especially if it’s not a well-maintained project. Downloading a tarball now might save a lot of pain later.
