Further Emerald Crisis

The Emerald team is losing another major developer and undergoing re-structuring as a result. This time it loses the project leader, a position which is to be abolished henceforth. In the process, it will migrate to a new domain and will no longer be associated with Modular Systems. This is described as “Emerald Resurgence” – and it is to be hoped that this is what will happen – but in fact it represents yet another crisis. Meanwhile, more residents use the Emerald Viewer, at least in my experience, that Viewer 2.0, although the latter does seem to be gaining significantly in popularity. (There are some good halfway houses such as Kirsten’s Viewer S20 that incorporate all the features of Viewer 2.0 without the annoying sidebars that cannot be removed, blocking much of the useful screen area.)

Let us hope that Emerald resolve some of the numerous issues raised in this blog and elsewhere about what is otherwise an excellent viewer that represents a great deal of valuable work on the part of the developers.
