Aladdin4D to go Shared-Source

Date 8-May-2013 19:07:45
Topic: Software News


In an effort to renew development efforts for Aladdin4D we will be making it shared-source commercial software. What this means is source code to Aladdin4D 5.x & 6.0 will be shared with key programmers in the AROS, AmigaOS 4 & MorphOS communities. Money will be paid out to any major changes they make to the code for example adding a MUI interface, native MorphOS or AmigaOS 4 version, completing Aladdin 4D 6.0 for OS X, Etc. Because of programmer issues Aladdin4D 5.x was taken off the market in October 2012... (Please click read more.)

Aladdin4D will be available again as a Instant Download but any sales will go into the programmer pool to upgrade the software. When DiscreetFX acquired Aladdin4D the dream was to have a modern maintained beginners 3D animation/rendering package for AmigaOS, MorphOS & AROS. Hopefully the shared-source initiative can make that dream come alive.

We welcome your views regarding this change of plans and look forward to your feedback. We only want the best for Aladdin4D and it's installed customer base and fans.

Best regards,

DiscreetFX Team
