Does anyone actually read these things? Or are the visits just from bots? in Native XDS-x86/XDS-C Posted September 16, 2008 · Report reply You could properly encourage the Modula-2 community, having released the XDS in open source (AS IS). What you lose from this step? Whereas the development and even product support has stopped many years ago. :'( The effort is not worth the result for us. It would be just a loss of engineering resources. "As is" it means as is at present. Without any additional efforts and loss of engineering resources, there can be some loss of intellectual property. At present is is available as a binary installer. Releasing a buildable source requires engineering resources. If I just zip the build directory and put it online it would be of little use to anyone.
