After more than 10 years of (mostly) active development, I am discontinuing development of InstallJammer. I've wrestled with this decision for more than a year now, and in my heart I always thought that I would come back and continue the work. As time went on and other projects started bubbling to the surface, I realized that I no longer had the heart to continue with InstallJammer.
A migration plan is underway to move the InstallJammer assets to SourceForge for project hosting and to open up the project repositories for anyone who would care to work on the development in the future. I don't expect anyone to take over, but stranger things have happened. If someone does step forward to continue the development of InstallJammer, I will work out the logistics and handing off the code and helping them through the process as much as my time allows.
These forums will continue to exist for the time being. I'm working on migrating all of the current topics and users over to a forum on SourceForge where these will continue to exist. I don't know for how long, but SourceForge doesn't really have a problem hosting stuff for projects like InstallJammer, so who knows. I'm sure you've also noticed that I combined the three forums into one. Everyone just sort of picked a random one to post questions in anyway, and they were all pretty much help requests, so I just simplified it. All of the posts from General and Development were combined with the Help forum. This will make the migration easier as well.
What should you do going forward? You can continue to use InstallJammer completely free of charge. You can grab the source code and fix some of those pesky bugs yourself. You can hire someone to help you fix those bugs. You might even hire me if you can convince me to do it. I won't make any promises, but I might be persuaded to help out.
You should definitely start looking for an installer that is under more active development. As I said, someone may come along and take up the reins and start new development, but I wouldn't count on it.
It has been a lot of fun working on this project, and I have gained an immense amount of knowledge because of it. InstallJammer has been a big part of my life for more than a decade. A part of me really hates to see it go, but a bigger part of me is excited about all of the new projects I'm working on now.
Thanks for all the help over the years. You know who you are.
