1. Ample SDK gone Open-Source
As we promised at the Ajax Experience and SVG Open conferences, and later on announced in a blog post, Ample SDK is Open-Source project as of 1st November, 2009. You can now use it under GPL or MIT licenses. The simple reason why project had been closed-source for the first year is because the lead developer, Sergey Ilinsky, was bound by a contract with his previous employer.
