Present (2010-2011)

WinMTR is and Open Source project currently managed and developed by Dragos MANAC.

The current version is 0.91. We plan to roll out a new version each quarter.  More in the Development section.

License:  The project is licensed under GPL v2. We tried changing it to commercial in v0.9, since we have full rights over the code. We thought there is no interest in having it Open Source since there were no external commits in the last 10 years. This degenerated into a heated debate on Slasdhot. Although we still consider within our rights to revoke the GPL, we decided to keep offering it under GPL v2.

WinMTR has got a new home, moved out of Sourceforge on to WinMTR.net!
