It means that the source code is no longer available and that DuctiSoft will be building it. Guess?!?

Daron, get your facts straight please !

James, the only people who know aren't talking. Development is proceeding at OpenDCL on SourceForge. Owen is still developing.

The current build is Alpha.07

I'd say now that the genie is out of the bottle, nobody can stuff it back in.  In other words, once you've released code under GPL, I don't think you can un-GPL it.

Considering the time and effort being poured into it at the moment there are obviously a few of us who agree with you Chuck, and some have taken legal advice :-)

Chuck is correct, once code is released under the GPL it can not be taken back. Now the copyright holders to the source code can release future versions of the code under any license they wish but the version that was posted to sourceforge will always be available under the GPL.

So . . .

I've given up on 3rd party apps.  If it doesn't ship with AutoDAD (windows) It's a moot point.  If I can finally get pallettes to work with .net well then . . ..

That philosophy can make sense when you are dealing with a proprietary, third-party app, but it tends to break down when you are talking about an open-source app.  Granted, the code base may be such a mess that no sane person would want to attempt updating it, but at least you have the option (and if you have deep pockets you can hire a professional).

deep pockets=my learning curve.  I don't hire out for anything I can't learn my self, except for ObjectDCL.  But that experience taught me to be self sufficient.  If I can't get palettes with .net then I'll stick with VB(A) forms and AutoLISP engines.

I like to be self-reliant too.  It's so hard to find people who are trustworthy.  Sometimes hiring a professional is the right solution, but it can be awfully hard to let go of the benefits of D.I.Y.

I didn't realize you had been burned by a hired gun.  Did you write about it on the swamp?
