I had originally hoped that after the release of our Bond Disc sufficient revenue would be generated to maintain and upgrade the software continuously. Unfortunately, this hasn't been the case. In this context it is important that the company invested a significant amount of extra money to develop the Bond Disc to its present form, i.e. that it could be made available to the general public. This happened on my advice, my belief that this is the right way to do more and finance the project's further development. As of now I cannot blame our CEO for not providing another budget.
This means the work on the Bond Disc is currently on halt, although I had big plans including a full interface overhaul. This minimalistic and yet ergonomic modern interface is still on my mind, maybe one day there is an opportunity for this. A port to Linux remains a possibility though because the company has a lot of software running on Linux PCs.
Apart from that a miracle needs to happen. Or people supporting us. You can contribute to the project by following the link in the Support Us box to the right. /rt
