Will GigaStudio become Open Source?



Giga in its current form cannot and will not be open source. We are aware of the Open GigaStudio initiative. While this idea has merit, open source is NOT possible because multiple parties are involved in some of the underlying code-ownership. It may, however, be possible to offer some sort of public or compiled freeware version someday, but that remains to be seen. We will check into what's possible and, in light of the ownership issues, consult with the legal folks and communicate with the user base.
