Vox 0.2.7 Yosemite Compatibility Update Released!

Hey guys!

I've updated Alessio Nonni's awesome Vox 0.2.7 to add compatibility with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite Smile

Why, you ask? Cause Vox 0.2.7 was the last no-nonsense light-weight hassle-free completely freeware version of Vox before Alessio sold the rights to Coppertino. Though Coppertino has done some wonderful things to Vox since then, they have also bloated Vox with background daemons and a freemium model making it barely usable anymore Sad

This is also where the problem lies. Vox 0.2.7 has barely a year left to turn abandonware, and Alessio published it under a CC BY-ND 3.0 license. As such, I'm adhering to the original license by distributing Vox unaltered together with an Updater that each end-user may use to add Yosemite compatibility. However, as Coppertino now owns the rights to Vox, does anyone know if that retrogradely invalidates the license under which Vox 0.2.7 was published?

Would really like to publish it here at the Garden once time is up...

Anyways, for anyone interested, Vox 0.2.7 Yosemite Compatibility Update can be downloaded here for the time being:

Hey Bry,

Thanks for this very cool update, my friend!

I'll just keep my fingers crossed on this one. I know that as far as I've seen, older versions retain their licensing terms and new versions adhere to whatever new licensing terms the present owners choose for their products. I hope that makes sense! Wink
