Howdy folks. I just wanted to drop you a quick bit of Gadgeteer news. I just received word from our internal legal team that my request to open-source the full Gadgeteer source tree has finally been approved. It was a very long path and not always the center of my attention, but it's done and the code will soon show up on Github.
I hope that the community finds this code useful either as a reference work or a source of new development on Gadgeteer, but I want to emphasize that this release does NOT mean that Microsoft will be doing new development of Gadgeteer. Gadgeteer is no longer supported or released as a product by Microsoft, but this release of source code is meant to give the Gadgeteer community the ability to continue with it in whatever form you care to.
I have a couple of minor source-code management tasks to take care of and I will follow up here with the URL of the repository once it is open to the public.
