The Times They Are a-Strangin’

film_dylanNothing ever stays the same I guess.

Yesterday, ThirdMotion, Inc. (the company that brought you StrangeIoC) and I decided it was time to part ways. This change is perfectly amicable on both sides; sometimes things just move in different directions.

Oh, Mighty Zarquon! What does this mean for me, er, I mean, for Strange?!

Relax, nerd. It’s not that bad. ThirdMotion has always been Strange’s staunchest advocate and ally (we open sourced it in the first place to make sure it would always be there for you), and that hasn’t changed. The company plans to hand over all Strange-related material to me and I’ll administer it…which isn’t really much of a change, since I’ve pretty much been doing that anyway.

What will change

I’ll be spending time looking for a new job, so at least for the short term we’ll probably not see a huge amount of forward development. How much development happens once I’m settled probably depends a lot on wherever I end up working.

While the old repo addresses (e.g. thirdmotion/strangeioc) will continue to function, we now have new recommended addresses:

[EDIT]Owing to an issue with GitHub pages, the old StrangeIoC repo no longer has an automatic redirect to the new repo. There’s just a note there telling you to go to the new page. Doing this allows the old documentation page to auto redirect to the new one. Don’t ask.[/EDIT]

By the same token, the docs at…
http://thirdmotion.github.io/strangeioc/
…have officially moved to…
http://strangeioc.github.io/strangeioc/

Probably I won’t be able to assist as much in support for a little while. I’ll jump in when I can, but feeding the wife and cat kind of take precedence. I’m sure y’all understand.

What won’t change

Strange isn’t going away. I kind of expect that whoever hires me next will do so in large part because of Strange, so hopefully I can convince them that it’s in their interest to support me in keeping it going.

As always, I’m grateful to everyone for your interest and support. It’s not always easy, but it’s never dull.
