Spacetech Ltd. is no more, long live Photodesk Ltd.

Posted by Alasdair Bailey on 16:32, 6/9/2000 | ,
According to Chris Hornby on the Photodesk and Topmodel mailing lists, Photodesk Ltd. will soon have a presence on the Internet at photo-desk.com/ and photodesk.ltd.uk.

He confirmed that the new company will continue selling digital cameras, and indeed expand the range from just the Olympus models; the Canon BJC7100 with photoreal drivers will still be sold while stocks can be located; and Photodesk Olympic (Photodesk 4) will be released around the time of the RISC OS 2000 show, priced £134.75 with various upgrade routes (v3 to v4 only £19.95).

One of the most surprising announcements was that the source to all programs will be opened up to programmers:

I am prepared to release the sources of all programs including Photodesk to *serious* programmers under NDA providing we retain rights to publish any developments either as commercial attachments or PD or shareware. People intending working on hardware drivers should contact me.
Hopefully this should assure the future of Photodesk the program, and perhaps even lead to new add-ons?
