Letter about Support for Amulet

November 21, 1997

Dear Amulet Users:

We are sorry to report that the government-funded support for Amulet will end soon, and unless there we receive substantial funding from a new source, we will be unable to continue supporting Amulet. In addition to many bug fixes, we are working on lots of exciting projects, which we will NOT be able to finish unless we receive new funding. The most likely source for funding is you, the Amulet Users, so if you want to continue having support for Amulet, please provide us with a grant! Otherwise, we will have to stop most support for Amulet very soon, and there will be no further releases and no-one to answer questions.

Unfinished future projects we are working on include:

We would like to release these, but we can't without significant additional support.

Meanwhile, a group of Amulet users is developing a version they call "OpenAmulet," to which they have added some of these. More information is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/openamulet (formerly: www.openip.org, and also formerly at http://packages.debian.org/stable/source/open-amulet).

Thank you for your interest in Amulet.
