I've always maintained that I would convert my systems to open source, were I to step away. This is to allow the Lusternian community to move on with maintaining, evolving and improving them. Well, the time is now to let others in on the fun of working on the best public system in Lusternia there is today
So what'll happen to m&m?
m&m as a product known today will cease to exist, and instead a different one (m&m 2), based on m&m, but open-source and completely free, will appear.
What about support for m&m?
Personal support for m&m from me will go away with m&m. There will instead be community support for m&m 2 - clan, forums, people who work on it, and friends!
When am I going to stop completely?
I plan on sticking around for a while to get m&m 2 going.
What about the m&m API namespace?
It'll still be named mm. for backwards compatibility reasons.
What about other systems?
They're all getting open-sourced as well.
What'll be the open-source license used?
What's the ETA?
Three weeks from now, m&m will be taken off sale (22nd August 2015). Two weeks after that (5th september 2015), another product, m&m 2, will be available in an open-source form and free.
All customer data will be securely wiped and not sold or transferred to anyone else. This is everything like emails, names, character names.
Big thanks to everyone who was involved over the years - which is too many names to list, and I'm afraid I'll miss out someone. But you know who you are
m&m has outlived many curing systems in its lifetime, and I'm sure it's still got a strong future ahead as the golden standard in clientside curing.
