News nybble: Manga goes open source

Opening up Manga and its sources, Rick Murray has released the application for fetching and reading Japanese comics under the Common Development and Distribution Licence (CDDL). Anyone interested in working on the software is now able to do so, with the source code not just to Manga itself available, but also the version of DeskLib Rick used to write it.

The motivating factor in this decision is that the website used by the application as a source for the Manga has made changes that prevent the software working. Therefore, if anyone else wants to investigate what needs to be done, they are welcome to do so. Rick’s full explanation and links to the source code and DeskLib can be found in his blog entry for today.
