AGS Editor source code available

CJ has put the editor source code up now. NB the engine and compiler are still closed, and CJ will not support custom editor versions or games made with them.

  1. It's a start, for sure. We already have Calin making changes to the editor, hopefully CJ will accept them back into the main trunk.

    It'll be easier when CJ makes the code available via a source repository, I'd imagine.

    As for the rest of AGS, well, that's up to CJ. Hopefully the community's actions will persuade him to open it up - even if he doesn't "get open source", as one comment on another blog somewhere else seems to think. And regardless of "getting it" or not, this is a good start, and should be encouraged.

    And worse case? Well, there's the beginnings for a LibreOffice-style fork, I guess. And I really hope it doesn't come to that, because a fork like that wouldn't have big backing (as LibreOffice does).
