The “Nullsoft Scriptable Install System” project is on the cusp of a new release, which will add Unicode and x64 support, among other things.
NSIS is a professional open-source tool for the development of Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and flexible as possible and is therefore highly suitable for internet distribution.
Amir, the project lead, mentioned in email this week, that he’s looking for developers who might be interested in joining the project, to move things along faster. In particular, he’s looking for someone who would be willing to take on the role of release manager, so that releases can be pushed out with more alacrity. “The project was doing its best when I had time to do a release every month.”
If you’re interested in participating in this project, in particular in the the role of release manager, the best place to get in touch with Amir and the rest of the project is in the NSIS project forum.
