New URL structure at VersionEye

This week we pushed a new version online where we completely changed our URL structure. Until last week we had URLs like this:

http://www.versioneye.com/package/prod_key/version/version

For example:

http://www.versioneye.com/package/rails/version/3~2~13
http://www.versioneye.com/package/org~hibernate–hibernate-core/4~2~0~Final

They look now like this:

http://www.versioneye.com/ruby/rails/4.0.0
http://www.versioneye.com/java/org.hibernate:hibernate-core/4.2.0.Final

VersionEye allows now dots in the parameters and we removed the static strings “package” and “version”. The URLs are now much shorter!

We wrote some redirect rules for the old URL structure. All old URLs are still working and will be redirected to the new URL structure. We tested the redirect rules with unit tests, but if you now a case there it doesn’t work, please let me know!
