Pegasus a phoenix?

It would appear the rumours of Pegasus’ death have been greatly exagerated. Or rather, it would appear that after many responses to his announcement, Pegasus author David Harris has decided to try and make a U-turn. Let’s hope he succeeds.

On January 3rd 2007, I announced that development of Pegasus Mail and Mercury would be ceasing because of funding problems. The result was an absolute avalanche of mail, phone calls, faxes and other communications wanting me to continue.


In response to the torrent of messages […] I have now decided to restart development and distribution of both programs. To make this possible, it will be necessary to restructure the way I fund them in some way that will attract an adequate and sustained level of financial support. [In] a nutshell, it is likely that Pegasus Mail will become “donationware”, while Mercury will become fully licensed based on numbers of mailboxes, with a certain base number of mailboxes provided free of charge.
