Happy Holidays, Open Source Developers!

It's the time of year for giving, and thus I have the pleasure of giving you two much-awaited gifts for Google Code's project hosting!

File Downloads - this has been the most-requested feature since we launched project hosting here on Google Code. We knew it would be, but wanted to ship earlier rather than later. We think you'll like what we did... one-click downloads and scriptable uploads, as well as searchable summaries and labels.

Wikis - all projects now have a tightly-integrated wiki appearing under a new Wiki tab. The really cool thing here is that the content is stored in your Subversion repository under the /wiki/ directory. You can edit the pages with your favorite editor and commit them with your favorite Subversion client! Additionally, you can add labels and page summaries to wiki pages for improved searching.

We hope you will enjoy these new features - let us know what you think!

Note: for an example, check out the GWT downloads or the Serf project's status page.
