|Source codes of MUIMapparium and Leu released, development abandoned|
Marcus "ALB42" Sackrow has released the source code of some of his Amiga applications on Github, among others his spreadsheet Leu as well as the OpenStreetMap viewer MUIMapparium. In an entry in his blog Sackrow explained that he discontiniued developing the software:
"As you might know I did not want to have my programs on the highly illegal distribution Coffin OS. You cannot detect Coffin, but it’s a distribution especially made for Vampire, therefore if I block Vampire they will not include my software anymore. Besides the Vampire users could push the Vampire team to condemn this distribution and stop to promote it. All of that did not happen, they still added my stuff, even with the Vampire block and the people became mad about me, not about the Vampire team (or the coffin team). I’m not good at being the bad guy."
Upon request of amiga-news.de Sackrow confirmed that currently he is not motivated to do anything for the Amiga. But the disputes concerning Coffin is only one of the several reasons for his decision. For the moment the server required for MUIMapparium he is going to continue maintaining. (cg) (Translation: dr)
