This is a cross post from my blog, once Dlayer has been officially released as an Open Source project this site will detail all new releases, as before.
As of the 10th August Dlayer is now an Open Source project, I’ve been thinking through my options for a long time and it just made sense, below is an extract from the new Dlayer website with my two core reasons.
Development began in 2008, up until August 2015 Dlayer was a closed project that I worked on single handled, I took the decision to Open Source Dlayer for the reasons listed below:
I want Dlayer to succeed, to do that it needs to be out there, an app that never ships is no good to anyone.
I want to build up a community around Dlayer and now that I have a solid base in place I can let the community have a say in where the app goes next, I obviously have my own plans but would love to hear from others.
I’m still in the early stages of officially releasing Dlayer as an Open Source project, Dlayer was both an app and a website, I need to separate the two, I’m almost there with the new web site, once that is ready I can start on stripping the redundant parts out of Dlayer.
