Unmaintained Free Software / News: Recent posts

New Wiki

Hi all,

after quite a long time of inactivity, the Unmaintained Free Software project is alive and well again!

We now run the site using a public wiki (http://www.unmaintained-free-software.org) where everyone can edit and add stuff!

If you want to be the new maintainer of any of the unmaintained projects, just go ahead, add yourself as the maintainer in the wiki and start coding ;-)

We also welcome all contributions, suggestions and discussions.... read more

Domain relocation, possible downtime.

Hi everyone,

I'm moving the unmaintained-free-software.org domain to another hosting service, hence there might be a few hours/days "downtime". Please use http://unmaintained.sourceforge.net in the mean-time.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

The http://www.unmaintained-free-software.org domain works as expected again.

Domain probably down...

Hi all,

The http://www.unmaintained-free-software.org domain seems to be down at the moment. I don't know the exact reason, and maybe it'll take some time until it works as expected again...

In the meantime you can always use http://unmaintained.sourceforge.net, which should work correctly...

Released unmaintained 0.6.2

Hi everyone,

I'm glad to announce a new relaese of unmaintained.

The most important changes in this release are the new 'TOP10 Licenses' statistic and the new Newsforge syndication box. It also features several bugfixes and minor improvements...

Two other important changes:
* Any 'free-ish' license is allowed now, not just DFSG-free licenses. Commercial projects are still *not* allowed, though, and source code must always be provided...
* If a project has not been updated in over 2 years (neither homepage, nor a new release nor CVS activity etc...) then you can email the author and ask if he still maintains the project. If he doesn't, or you don't hear from him within 2 weeks, you can add that project to Unmaintained Free Software.... read more
