CasperTech recently announced on the official Metabolt homepage that they will be taking over and maintaining the METAbolt text client for Second Life and OpenSim users. This is very good news to hear this and that the project is once again active for the long-term.
In the coming weeks there will be brand new website and a new release of METAbolt soon. New developments are now in the pipeline and it’s going to be interesting to see where it goes next I think.
Same Viewer. New Opportunities
It was recently announced that the METAbolt project was being discontinued. We are very happy to announce that this has not happened, and instead CasperTech have stepped in to curate and maintain the project.
CasperTech is a leading provider of solutions for content creators within Second Life. We believe that METAbolt will benefit from our strong legacy and foundations.
It is not our intention to commercialise the project, and we will maintain it in the same spirit of open source community collaboration. We do intend, however, to rejuvenate the METAbolt community with active development, support and new innovation. We are very excited by this opportunity, and we hope you are, too!
Please bear with us while we complete the transitional period – we’re working on a new website and will be making our first release of METAbolt soon.
