Title: Winyl will be open source
Post by: Alexander on February 07, 2018, 03:25:44 PM
How it will be done:

The source code will be released on GitHub under GPLv3 license. And I will write in details how to compile it.
The website will be moved to GitHub pages.
The forum will be closed. GitHub "Issues" should be enough for bug reports and future requests anyway.

As you noticed there were long delays in the development recently, so I'll try to use Patreon ( to help me fund Winyl development.
If it'll work out it will make Winyl not just my hobby project but part of my job so no more delays in the development.

Technical info:

Winyl is written in C++ with Visual Studio so project files and compilation instructions will be for Visual Studio.
There isn't any Microsoft specific libraries are used, like MFC, ATL, it's only STL and pure WinAPI,
so it's possible to compile it with GCC (MinGW) if you want but you'll need to create cmake files yourself.

It uses the following 3rd-party libraries:

Let me know if you have any questions.
