Earlier today we rolled out a minor design update to the site. Notably, we have a brand new home page (remember, you can always get to the homepage at http://github.com/home):

It’s simpler, sweeter and to the point. GitHub has evolved a lot since launch – and we’ve been bad at explaining that to newbies. Hopefully this is the first step of many to better explain our offerings. You’ll also notice a new footer and language switcher.

For the astute, you’ll notice lots of CSS improvements (only down to one image-based gradient!).

Hope you all enjoy!
