Axum, so long and goodnight...

Isolation, Agents, and Message-passing in .NET - The State of Axum

"Those who have followed this blog will have noticed that it’s been a long time since we posted anything new about Axum, and the time has come to state publicly that which may have been clear to some but not others, that we’re not currently pursuing productization.

We have seriously examined the possibility of releasing the source code under an OSS license, but that, too, will require time that we don’t have that much of. At this time, no one is assigned paid hours to work on Axum, but we are still entertaining fantasies about an open-source release sometime in the future by doing some extra work during down times.


The good news was that the investment wasn't wasted and as if often the case some of the ideas, concepts and effort has made its way into C#/VB/.Net BCL
