Celebrating 10 years of Gemfury

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Gemfury. We are proud to have pursued our mission to help individual developers and teams ship. And in the past decade, we’ve made an easy, secure, and reliable service to store and deploy various types of code and OS packages.  

CVE-2021-44228: Apache Log4j vulnerability

Gemfury team is actively monitoring the reported remote code execution vulnerability in Apache Log4j Java library. We have found no services that are impacted by this vulnerability. We work closely with the Java ecosystem, and have parts of our service running on the JVM, however, we found no first party usage of Log4j in our stack.  

Recent repo outages

Gemfury had two unplanned outages on Tuesday, April 20, and Monday, May 3. Not only were these disruptive service outages, but they were also failures in preparation and response around events that we could have anticipated and/or prevented. We owe an explanation and an apology.  

More billing improvements

Following up on the previous post about expanding payment options for paid Gemfury customers, we’ve made further improvements on the billing side.  

A few billing improvements

In general, Gemfury customers have been happy with not just the service itself, but also with our competitive pricing and simple billing process. However, we do occasionally hear about credit card issues that take time away from focusing on your work. In the past days, we have made the following improvements to our billing process to further reduce your billing issues and concerns.  

A look inside: exploring package content

Expanding on our vision of a toolkit to improve package development and distribution, we are introducing a new way to inspect packages that you have stored in your Gemfury account. Today, we are proud to announce the addition of our new Package Explorer.  

Command-line management of git

Since adding git push as one of the recommended methods to upload packages, we’ve been happy to see many of you adopt it into your Gemfury workflow. Our next step fills out the toolset to help you manage and debug your Git repositories with four new CLI commands.
