GitHub has just announced that they are launching a Security Advisory API that will provide data on vulnerabilities aggregated from millions of projects. Programmatic access to security advisories should allow developers to more proactively address issues.
Singly has announced the open beta of its app connection platform. The platform consists of two main components (i.e. the App Fabric SDK and the Data Fabric infrastructure). The App Fabric simplifies social data sharing and shortens time to enable functionality such as friend finding and login across multiple apps. The Data Fabric allows developers to integrate features like synching, data querying, intelligent indexing, instant push, archiving, and more.
