This is an interesting post given the topics of all the other posts in this category... but here we go. I've always maintained that I would convert my systems to open source, were I to step away. This is to allow the Achaean 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 Achaea there is today
So what'll happen to Svo?
Svo as a product known today will cease to exist, and instead a different one (Svo 2), based on Svo, but open-source and completely free, will appear.
What about support for Svo?
Personal support for Svo from me will go away with Svo. There will instead be community support for Svo 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 Svo 2 going.
What about the Svo API namespace?
It'll still be named svo. 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?
One week from now, Svo will be taken off sale (8 August 2015). Two weeks after that (22 August 2015), another product, Svo 2, will be available in an open-source form and free. Later on, vadi-m and the old, old Nexus (not to be confused with the new Nexus client) system will be available.
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
Svo 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.
