Opera has launched its first fully open-source project by moving the Dragonfly debugging toolkit onto the BitBucket hosting service.

Released from the start under an open source BSD licence, the plan for Dragonfly was always to make it Opera's first open source project, the company said. Until the shift to BitBucket, however, it has been hosted on Opera's servers.

"Dragonfly was open source, but now there is a proper project around it," David Storey, product manager for Dragonfly, told ZDNet UK on Monday. "The code is now held on an external server at Bitbucket.org." Storey revealed the move in a blog post earlier in February.
