KiCad Lead Developer Announcement

I don’t normally post blog announcements in the first person but I’m going to make an exception since this is rather important. This will also be my first blog post that isn’t good news. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. I regret to inform everyone that I found out earlier this month that my employment with WIT will be terminated effective October 31st. I am not at liberty to discuss the details as to why my employment was terminated but can say that I had nothing to do with the decision. I know that it’s not the best situation in the world for the project or me personally but I am going to do everything in my power to continue to work full time on KiCad. In the short term, I will continue working on KiCad while pursuing as many avenues as possible to generate enough revenue to allow me to continue to work full time on KiCad. You should expect more announcements in the not to distant future. The long term prospects are not as clear so I will keep everyone informed as I know more. Thank you everyone for your continued support of the KiCad project.
