Incredibly, I started Form Tools 16 years ago, and over the years it just grew and grew… cool new modules, never-ending reams of documentation, website updates, and feature after feature after feature. But the larger it got the less feasible it became to support and maintain, let alone push forward. I’m just one guy and for many years the writing has been on the wall. If I’d been able to work on it full-time, things could be different – but I’ve always needed that day job to pay the bills. The last 6 months I’ve been revising a far smaller open source project, and even that has proven to be a massive amount of a work. It’s time to face fact: I no longer have time for this project.
So until things change – and I’m afraid I don’t forsee that happening – I’m very sad to say that the time has come to halt development on the project. Initially I’d hoped to pass on the reigns to an old friend of mine, but he too hasn’t been able to find time for the project.
Thanks so much everyone, it’s been wonderful. 🙂
