Possibly the biggest announcement ever for RunUO!
The RunUO team has collectively decided that we will be open sourcing RunUO's core to the public. At this point for the most part, the core is done and the only things remaining are game layer features. We have totally rewritten the networking piece of RunUO and Factions are pretty stable. We have completed a lot of the Ninja additions to UO and are ready to release the core code to the world.
RunUO has been closed source to control development and ensure that things got done in a manner that made RunUO successful. Since founding RunUO we have had nearly 40 releases, all with a major amount of work behind them. The next release will be Version 1.0.0, and it will be under an open source license. We have not chosen a license yet but as soon as we do we will let you guys know.
We have registered RunUO over at SourceForge (months back) in preparation for this, this is not something we just decided overnight, it was an original intention of the project. You can see the RunUO project on SourceForge at www.sf.net/projects/runuo although it doesn't have very much information right now.
We are very happy with the progress we have made with RunUO, we are also very happy with how well RunUO's community has developed. Sure we do have a few bad apples that think they can ruin things for us, but the fact is the good completely outweighs the bad here.
We all wanted to take the time to thank you, the community for our success. We hope that you enjoy the next release (and the releases to come). Thanks for all of the support!
Ryan (on behalf of the RunUO Team).
