I wanted to thank everyone for their very diverse responses to the announcement of the Blender Java Project. If you haven’t heard of it already, you can find it here: http://blender.dooglamoo.com
I just wanted to make a couple comments here.
I would like everyone to know that I have great respect and admiration for the programmers who have worked so hard to make Blender what it is today and also for the Blender Institute for managing the Project as well as they do, and I have every intension of striving to stay in line with the Institutes goals and cooperating with them as best as I can.
Also, I intend for the Blender Java Project to be open source and under the same license as Blender, and the Java source code will be released some time soon. The reason it is not released already is because of the way that I port (I don’t use any automated programs, it’s all by hand, and I do multiple passes) the Java code is rather messy at first and would probably be of no use to anyone. The code will be released as soon as it is in, at least, a somewhat presentable state.
