Glucose has released two powerful tools as "lincenseless" Open Source products. The company is asking that developers who use these product to create their own applications donate a "small sum" to a charity of their choice. According to Glucose:
Glucose Development Corporation today announced a 'licenseless' Open Source toolkit, consisting of two free tools, GXML and Thunder.
What is GXML?
The GXML toolkit, utilized in Glucose's flagship product, Injection Pro, is a multithreaded HTML processing tool. It can be used to decode HTML for display and manipulation.
What is Thunder?
Thunder is Glucose's layered, alpha-channel capable graphics architecture. Thunder is used to create Data Hammer's interactive 'heads-up-display.' Currently, the Thunder architecture is only partly realized, but is designed to be fully cross-platform and extremely extensible. Preliminary support for 'Photoshop-style' filters and Quicktime importers is included.
Both of these tools are open source and free to use in commercial, shareware and freeware products. We are committed to giving back to the community that supports us -- and to the global community as a whole. We only ask that if a developer utilizes these tools in a product that they contribute a small sum to a charity of their choice.
