LIVECODE KICKSTARTER REPORT CARD -Version 4
The first thing to note is that LiveCode Ltd has open-sourced LiveCode under the GPL licence. It is freely accessible on Github.
The second thing to note is that the majority of the Kickstarter rewards have been delivered. Only delivery of printed copies of a new updated dictionary after final Kickstarter project delivery remains to be completed.
There seems to have been three other major deliverables promised in the main campaign:
