- Time goes by...
I started UWC back in 2002, when I was in High School. For years, it has been my main project and has entertained me a lot. I spent hours, even days, in front of an Hex Editor to understand how the Webshots files were made, and improve my program. As more and more people downloaded it, they suggested new features, which I took a lot of pleasure to implement and receive feedback on. For two years now, the program has been quite mature, and there has been only a few bugs to fix. Now I am working full time, and do not have time and motivation anymore to work on UWC. This does not mean it is the end for UWC (this website will stay online till the Internet dies ;)) but I wont make any update nor bugfix.
If you are interested to work on bugfixes on UWC 1.6 (written in VB6) or development on UWC 2.0 (written in C++/Qt), please contact me (my e-mail adress is in the about dialog of UWC), I will be happy to give you a developer access to the code repository on sourceforge, so that UWC will continue to improve.
For all these years, thanks goes to all the developpers who have helped me in reverse engineering, translators who have made possible for UWC to spread that easily all over the world (More than 130k downloads for UWC 1.6 !), and users that suggested me great features and helped me with the debugging !
