Yesterday, we released our newest open-sourced project, which we named Unicorn. Unfortunately, that was also the name of two existing open sourced projects. We really dropped the ball, and have been working hard to clean up the mess. Our apologies to anyone in the Ruby or Python community who was confused or pissed off.
