Malsys is open-source!
8th of February 2015: Finally! After three years of postponing I have managed to find some time to open the source codes. Check out the GitHub repository.
The primary idea behind opening the source is to share some nice solutions and techniques with the community. Also, there is no reason to keep the sources in secret.Comments | News archive
