Talking about SimulIDE, there is this wrong information;
"There are three versions: A paid version 0.5.15-RC4 (via Patreon), a free version 0.4.14-SR4, and a community edition."
"Open source: No for the free and paid versions, but the community version is"
Let me clarify this:
- There is only one version of Simulide available at simulide.com.
- Patrons receive early builds during the development proccess.
But this is not a different version, just early builds of a release that it is not finished, so not ready for going public.
Once a release is finished it goes public.
- SimulIDE is 100% open source, released under GPL V3.
There are not different versions, so there are no different licenses.
The source code is available everywhere the binaries are available.
- SimulIDE "community edition" is not a different version.
It is just a fork of an old version with almost no changes.
The only real change other than configuring the project is a typo corrected.
And this fork is abandoned, nobody is working on it for around 5 months.
I would be happy with a real fork, I even offered my help: https://github.com/SimulIDE/SimulIDE/issues/32
But sadly, as often happens, the initial energy dissipated rapidly.
