Lucerne, July 9th 2010 – After months if not years of research, seeks, talks and other communication I'm proud to announce that Jeff Fenton, founder and owner of GST and legal successors, has declared all GST software written for the Sinclair QL as public domain. This includes 68K/OS, the Assembler, QC, Editor, Macro Assembler, Linker and all Demos.

In the last few weeks I’ve prepared a complete distribution of all GST stuff I fetched over the years. You can download the full GST distribution directly from this link.

I’m off for summer holidays now.
