Gary Peake posted the updates below on the Open Amiga list to clarify some issues. Amongst other things Amiga's licensing scheme is under review and there will be no fees for application developers this year.
Sorry for the delay in posting any updates here. I have just returned from
a 2500 plus mile trip in a Rental truck (24 footer) dragging my family and
a 3 bedroom house full of furniture to Snoqualmie from Texas.
If I missed any posts, please feel free to send them my way.
If possible, can anyone currently porting an app or utility or whatever
please send me an email? I would like to establish an online database for
registered developers so these apps can be listed and thus avoid any
duplications that may take place.
I would also like to announce that Douglas McLaughlin will be writing his
own version of ICQ for the new AmiVerse.
Contrary to what the SDK says, there will be NO license fees on any
applications, tools, or ports in the year 2000. We are reviewing this
policy for 2001 and beyond and as soon as I have the info I will post it
Also, there is and never will be license fees on open source apps or tools.
Developer Web Site
Sorry about the delay with the web site. Part of the delay was waiting to
see which ways we would go with certain web based applications and another
part of the delay has been getting my family situation worked out and all
of my family up here to the great Northwest.
That accomplished, the web site updates will begin in earnest now. Stay
tuned for more developments there.
Thanks for your patience.
