Title: Open Source Development for MMTTY, MMVARI, and MMSSTV
Post by: AA6YQ on August 07, 2013, 12:06:58 AM
Mako JE3HHT, the author of MMTTY, MMVARI, and MMSSTV, has released these applications to open source development under the LGPL license. This license enables developers and companies to use and integrate MMTTY, MMSSTV, and MMVARI, while ensuring that all improvements to source code are made publicly available.

The MM-Open organization has been established to encourage and facilitate open source development. Anyone may create public or private branches of these applications.  A set of Committers will maintain a master branch for each application; the initial Committers are Bob N4HY, Eric KE5DTO, Oba JA7UDE, and Steve N5AC.  Packaged versions of MMTTY, MMVARI, and MMSSTV assembled from the master branches will continue to be available via web pages administered by Ken VE5KC:

http://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmvari.php (http://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmvari.php)

http://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmsstv.php (http://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmsstv.php)

Source code for these applications is available via GitHub, courtesy of FlexRadio.

Existing Yahoo Groups will continue to be used to convey defect reports and enhancement requests.

I use MMVARI/MMTTY thru Commcat logger which is a little different from the standalone versions. I know you had something to do with that.  ;) Thank you.

What does this mean for the users? Will there be updates to the software?  Seems like it has not been updated for some time, altho I still like it because of the seamless way it integrates with Commcat. I love the X-Y scope on FSK, it is so much better for tuning vs other software.

It has always been possible for applications to incorporate MMTTY, MMVARI, and MMSSTV. DXLab, Logger32, and N1MM have long done this.

What's changed is that any developer can now improve MMTTY, MMVARI, and MMSSTV.
