I’ve also posted this over at the official VirtueDesktops project site.
I’ve been sitting on a fairly big decision (for me) for the last few weeks. The writing has been on the wall for VirtueDesktops since last year’s WWDC, but I had intended to release a nice, stable version for 10.4 users before I stopped work on the project.
I’ve decided not to finish that version - http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?t=12392
Needless to say, it wasn’t easy to make this call - I’ve loved working on Virtue, and I think it has some features that Spaces won’t match. The sad fact is, that since June last year, it has all been effort poured into a product that has no future.
Update: Wow! I hadn’t realised just how much this little app meant to people! Thankyou all for your kind e-mails, IMs and posts of thanks - I appreciate it.
