LOULOU,

Please remember that AutoIt is developed by a team of volunteers and we depend on these developers having enough time spare away from their real jobs and their home lives to work on the AutoIt code. As such, the development schedule is never announced in advance and new releases appear as and when they are considered ready.

I happen to know that several of the developers have very little, if any, time to spare for AutoIt at present - so I would not hold your breath for a new Beta release, let alone a new stable version, any time soon. But then, as with all things AutoIt, you never know...... :blink:

Ahhh... like some politician.

The real truth have a bitter taste.

All of us will just have to wait and see what happens next. Direction is unpredictable at this point.

April was just 3 months ago. I wouldn't ever think development on a project stopped just because the last release was 3 months ago.

I suppose opensource means that everybody can help and participate in the development.

But it doesn't mean that anybody can treat it as their own code and do whatever they want.

The author rights and the software license got to be respected.

If somebody uses other's opensource code in the programs then he/she must credit the code's author and follow the license terms (GPL or another).

Why did they care that someone took their code and spun another program from it? Isn't that a part of what opensource means?

It matters a lot which specific license was in use at the time. Before 3.2.0 AutoIt was GPL, now it's closed-source freeware. I've heard there was some animosity at the time, but it was more likely personal (sharp disagreement about whether it was necessary\wise to fork) than legal issues about the license.

Seems too much like prying into a friend's family quarrels for me to want to know any more about it.

If it was GPL then pretty much it does mean you can do that.

Please go and have a read of the GPL and what it means for forking. There's nothing at all against forking a project under the terms of the GPL, in fact most GPL software is either forked from another GPL project, or has 'descendant' forks itself. Sometimes the forks end up superseding their 'parent' project, sometimes they fade into obscurity. But the GPL definitely allows it.
