Oryx Mail Systems GmbH
On 25th June 2009, I (Arnt Gulbrandsen, co-founder and majority
shareholder of Oryx) wrote the following to the
users mailing list:
Abhijit and I are going to close Oryx. The process is an involved one,
but around October 2010, Oryx will be gone.
Because of health problems and past mistakes, we don't think Oryx as a
company is viable any more.
So we're gradually closing down Oryx, BUT NOT ARCHIVEOPTERYX. We'll
relicense it using either the BSD or Apache 2 licenses and continue
making new releases for years to come. We both feel obliged to keep
the existing archives viable.
The next release is overdue, but it'll have to wait until Abhijit's
elbow permits the necessary typing. Nothing in the diff is important
enough to skimp on our usual review process.
The mailing lists will move to aox.org now (you don't need to
resubscribe). If you filter, adjust your filters to suit:
That's it. If you're reading this, we've probably sold the oryx.com
domain; people used to send us offers every few weeks/months. Someone
else will get all the French and Turkish spam which used to plague
If you need Archiveopteryx consulting (new features, installation
help, anything) either Abhijit or
Arnt may be able to
help. Feel free to ask.
In case of questions, please ask firstname.lastname@example.org.
