I’m happy to report that OpenDCL project members responded to last fall’s request for financial support by contributing US $2300.00 before the end of 2013. There has been a noticeable increase in project activity since that time. Member contributions dropped a bit in 2014 to US $1730.00. Thank you very much for your support! Your contributions help defray web site expenses and motivate programmers and administrators to continue investing time and energy in the OpenDCL project. If you use and rely on OpenDCL for your work, please consider a one-time or recurring annual contribution to help ensure the project’s future.
Looking for AutoCAD 2015 support? OpenDCL 8.0 Alpha 5 includes preliminary support for AutoCAD 2015.
OpenDCL 7.0 is now officially released as a stable version after over 2 years of development and testing. The new release adds support for AutoCAD, Bricscad, and ZWCAD+ on Microsoft Windows, giving the growing number of lisp developers a user interface framework with the same cross platform support as their programming language.
OpenDCL is and always will be FREE!
However times are tough and it’s getting harder to spend time on a project when there’s no compensation for it. Our lead developer, Owen Wengerd of ManuSoft, has been supporting the OpenDCL community for years now without ever receiving a single penny for his monumental contribution. I, Barry Ralphs, have also been footing the bill to keep the OpenDCL web site up and running. If you’d like to help keep OpenDCL moving forward, please go to the following URL to make a contribution/donation.
I’ve just released OpenDCL 7.0 Alpha 4 with support for AutoCAD 2013. Even though this is an alpha release, not much development work has been done since OpenDCL 6 was released, so this is a very stable pre-release build that can be safely used in production if needed.
