Wonderful project, based on open standards and technologies.
Less usable -- Here's why.
With the old version, I could open the project(s) homepage(s) in another window of my browser, and so I could always keep Freshmeat page (in a separate (the "original") window of the browser.)
This was possible because the link to the project homepage was just an ordinary HTML link, and so I could open it in another window of my browser (via "right click/Open in new window" or whatever else your browser requests to do.)
Now instead I am compelled to browse such a link in the same window -- thus losing Freshmeat page -- because the link is implemented via the select box plus the "go" button, and so there is no way to open it in a separate window (with a single click at least).
please, replace the select box plus the "go" button with ordinary links
provide a checkbox (or a set of radio buttons) to decide whether or not open the link in a new browser window.
