Microsoft is open sourcing its QUIC library, MsQuic, on GitHub under an MIT license.
what is MsQuic
Microisoft declared “MsQuic is a cross-platform, general-purpose library that implements the QUIC transport protocol. QUIC is being standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). MsQuic is a client and server solution optimized for multiple usage patterns and is used by multiple Microsoft products and services. MsQuic is currently in preview and supports Windows and Linux.”
There are several substantial benefits from moving to GitHub.
Code reviews will be public via the GitHub’s pull request model, allowing for more external input during the development process.
Issues will also be tracked on GitHub to allow for better public discussion and visibility.
Documentation will be in the same place as the code.
