When I started developing AlphaVSS and AlphaFS I was in the final stages of my Master Thesis project at Chalmers Univeristy, and looking for a job. This meant I had a whole lot of spare time, and development of these two libraries progressed quite quickly.
In November 2008 I got a job as a developer at iCore Solutions AB and unfortunately this meant that my spare time suddenly was a lot more limited. Furthermore, working as a developer in .NET means I spend at least 8 hours a day at work in front of Visual Studio. Needless to say, that significantly reduces the wish to spend your spare time in front of the computer doing the same thing. So this means that lately the development and activity of both these libraries has come close to a standstill.
Another reason for the slowdown is that they are both in beta stage, but not enough feedback has been received as to make the decision to go final.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I have not abandoned these projects, and I intend to continue developing them, however the pace is unfortunately severely reduced.
If you feel you have the time, and will to contribute to either of these projects, please don’t hesitate to let me know as any help would be greatly appreciated.
And also, if you have any feedback, both negative and positive on any of these projects, please let me know!
