      well, not entirely happy, Backed the project with 130$ and got the t shirt, so most of my backing went to finance the OSS version...

      @Callum: well a license is supposed to give you access to a software. You do have access to Light Table, and its source code. The thing is, its not exclusive anymore and you could have gotten it without paying 15$ in the first place. But then again, this is Kickstarter and plans can change. And there is this motivation to support the creation of Light Table.

      I appreciate the frequent releases and I am all in favour of OSS. I don't care about the $15, but I think the people who supported this project on the basis of receiving a "license" (the majority btw - at 4258 backers) should get something, at least an acknowledgement that they paid for a thing they will never get. I'm going to put 'Got it!' on my little Kickstarter tracker page, but what I really got was ignored.

      @Nick: during the funding period a second 15$ pledge level was added which promised the backer a license. Now that Light Table is open source, this is obsolete. So in short: no.

      I know this may sound a bit odd but should I have got something for my $15 That I gave 20 months ago? I'm not concerned, just interested. Any info would be very much appreciated.

      Thanks Chris. Great to see this happening!

      What will you for people who contributed on the basis of receiving licenses?

    8. Creator David Beegle on January 9, 2014

      So, this means no licenses to Light Table then, right?

    9. Creator Christopher Mayfield on January 8, 2014

      yeah I knew you were going to say that :-)
