KPilot is dead

Bertjan blogged about it two weeks ago, and you might have deduced it from Jason’s gadget switch, but KPilot should be considered dead. Of the three “maintainers” (and I used that word only very loosely regarding myself) I don’t think any of them actually uses a PalmOS device any more. There is, quite simply, no return for us any more in working on the application, much as we might want to keep the software alive. Read Bertjan’s blog for details on what this means and where you can find the software if you would like to resurrect it. It’s under the GPLv2, so have at it.

To support such an effort, I’ll say free to a good home: one box of assorted PalmOS devices, ranging from the Palm Pilot (the original!) through to a Tungsten E and a pair of m500s. With chargers and assorted cables. Just drop me a note.

    [...] KPilot es un reemplazo, disponible en KDE, del software Palm Desktop proporcionado por PalmSource Inc. Su objetivo es permitir que tu palm intercambie información con un equipo con KDE instalado. Lamentablemente, todo indica que el proyecto Kpilot ha dejado de existir. Según declaraciones de sus mantenedores, desde hace meses que han dejado de trabajar en su desarrollo y durante este tiempo ni siquiera se han corregido los bugs reportados. Al parecer, ello debido a que sus intereses en la actualidad apuntan a otras actividades. El proyecto, sin embargo, puede ser retomado por quien desee continuarlo. Si estás interesado en acceder al código o simplemente quieres más información al respecto, puedes encontrarla tanto en el blog de Bertjan como en el de Adriaan de Groot. [...]
