The acknowledgements in http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post19419370 attempt to recognize the many people that have contributed to make the current project possible. They were gracious to allow us to include their work, and accepting any money might be viewed as a conflict of interest. The project was started with the intent that it would be offered as free for personal use, and I think it's best if it's always left in that form.
I have considered the idea of starting a new project. At this point it's nothing more than a few thoughts on how I could make this project better in certain respects, if some of the limitations from the current structure were removed. For example the interest from nashou66 in having a 2.35:1 layout might be possible if something new was started. Anyway at this point it's little more than some ideas I've had while putting together Version 2, and nothing could happen until after I finish this project.
