So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

Friend of Yasu…

Over the years, Yasu built a strong following of loyal users much like yourself. Because of it, I gained many online acquaintances & friends, and have been thrilled beyond words to see it featured in magazines and by user groups.

But the sad truth is, I don’t have the time or energy to continue working on the project anymore. My personal and professional lives have moved onto completely different areas of focus, leaving this one totally neglected.

So, in all fairness to users, my family, and myself, I’ve decided the time has come to officially announce I’ve stopped developing Yasu.

Yeah… It’s really over this time.

If you’d like to download one of the final versions, here they are…

There is no support for these downloads. You use them entirely at your own risk, and there’s no guarantee version 2.9.1 will work with versions of Mac OS X beyond 10.10.

I know my decision may disappoint many, and might even piss off others. I get that, especially if you made a donation somewhere along the way — which I’m very grateful for.

If you’re one of those who feels let down, all I can say is I’m sorry if this news comes as a shock or disappointment. But, I think it’s much better to make my intentions plain rather than saying nothing and just letting Yasu die. I hope you agree.

To those who have been so supportive over the years, I can’t say thank you enough. You’ve made it an epic journey through a season in my life I thought I’ve never get to have — being a Mac shareware developer. For that, I’m eternally grateful. I’ll look back on those years with fondness well into my old age.

So, there it is. My heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made Yasu possible and successful.
