I'm actually glad that for the first time I see a clone/fork of multiMAN which has things and features ADDED. I've witnessed 4 or 5 releases of multiMAN, compiled by various users or sites, castrated and barely recognizable, renamed and published as 'original work' (there was no drama there, right?!), but this time some users get a better version, although limited to cobra dongle users. As I see it, the new stuff in mmCM is about cobra and it is nice that someone picked up on the 'garbage source-code' (as many qualified it numerous times few months ago), and managed to add useful features to it.
I don't care who uses mm's source, so just stop the drama. The license says 'you can do whatever you want with it' and it doesn't require that you include the modified source or anything. Check your English skills and re-read it. It requires that the redistributed package/version includes the license and it does - there is a ./usrdir/sys/LICENSE file in their distribution.
As I see it - cobra usb users got a new option and that's good - I like that now they can enjoy a multiMAN clone. Actually I feel kind of good that mm will reach more people. As for the mm 02.09.02 being the latest (not last) multiMAN version - well if I find something new to add - I'll add it. I spent a year adding stuff and features and it looks good to me as it is now. If I find time - I'll add more. If you find time to add something useful - add it - the source was there for 7 months and no one cared about that.
Dean I just want to say thank you for such a great program, it was awesome to start with but the updates and hardwork that you have put into it and it all being free have been amazing and multiMAN in its latest form looks so sleek, functional and professional, you deserve all the plaudits that you recieve.
I hated the garbage manager that Cobra was using and now I have the best of both worlds...although I hope for the sake of ethics Cobra have at least asked if you would like some royalties in return.
