Title: Slysoft Shuts Down
Post by: KrunchTime on 2016/03/03, 05:25:36

Evidently, the conviction and additional pressure on Slysoft's business partners have forced the company to cease operations:

Just found out a few minutes ago over in the Bunsen Labs forums that the software has been revived by a group of former developers and staff:
