Wimpbasic.org faces closureBy Chris Williams. Published: 1st Nov 2004, 11:14:47 | Permalink | Printable
Domain renewal headacheJohn Peachey has said he will not be renewing wimpbasic.org, and is looking for someone to take over the site.
"The Wimpbasic domain has come up for renewal. With some regret, I have decided that support for Wimpbasic is no longer justified. This site will therefore disappear at the end of October 2004," writes John.
"In coming to this conclusion, I have considered the (minor) financial costs involved, and the future of the system. Unfortunately with further development unlikely in the forseeable future, I feel that it is not appropriate to continue a program that is not being actively developed, nor that will work on a 32bit machine natively."
Wimpbasic is an integrated development environment for producing desktop software, and a 26bit version is available commercially from APDL. Wimpbasic.org provides a host of resources and tutorials for developers using WimpBasic.
