Wait, what? Lionet kicked Frédérik off the group? That's a bit of a dick move.

I've not really had much contact with him back in the day, but lately he seemed to be a nice older dude with a passion for his original creation who had embarked on a journey to update it to a Javascript platform, all of which was quite charming. (Not that I personally would buy AMOS-for-PC as the Amiga is part of the whole AMOS coding deal in my eyes, but I guess others might).

Seems he's all about the money and is just seeing euro-signs everywhere now. Which is a great shame.

In the meantime, one other member of the AmosFactory team and I am shifting our priorities to the Enhanced E Compiler based on ECX sources and largely compatible with the original AmigaE. Hopfully things will cool off on the Amos front.
Yep, this is not a good thing at all. We shall see what happens, I guess.

François is bipolar. He may just be on a manic high right now. Let's see if he cools off after a while.

Update: Freddix (Frédéric) will rerelease his code as a closed source extension to an older version of AmosPro.

François is no longer on the AmosPro coders group on FB and is therefore not an admin there either.

Freddix' blocking on the group was an accident by another admin and NOT the work of François. The kicking out was, however Freddix has been readmitted now that François is no longer an admin.

Yeah I was going to say no one could stop him releasing a Extension or a Patch for the main executable.

To put things in context, wasn't the source made public domain? I thought Francois was not even the owner anymore, right ? I remember reading of a guy, Pietro Ghizzoni, to be the legal owner to the original source code. So, how can Francois slap a GPL3, retroactively, on something he should not own?
Please feel free to correct any point I may have gotten wrong or inaccurate

You might be right. François posted something to that effect this morning on one of his feeds. It may be under the license Pietro put on it when he released the AmosPro source and the rest is under ClickTeam's license.
