What about the improvements already made but are part of RO4 Select/Adjust ? Unless the same modules and apps are open sourced from there as well then somebody will simply duplicate the work that has already been done.
I'm all for open sourcing but I see some serious pitfalls due to the split OS fork. I am also a bit suspicious that this is an attempt by Castle to drop development itself for those modules and apps that it knows are inferior to the ones in Select. Has anyone checked this ?
Martin Avison named as new Organizer developer RISC OS software developer Martin Avison was today unveiled as the coder working on new versions of life management package Organizer. Originally written by Chris Morison, the software was handed over to Nigel Willmott to manage and find Organizer a new developer. Announcing a new website for the package, Nigel said: "It's been a steep learning curve both for me as a software publisher, and for Martin in finding his way around approaching 30,000 lines of code, but we hope an initial new version will be ready for release very soon." 1 comment, latest by jess on 23/1/09 8:56AM.
