KeyStore Explorer Now Open Source
KeyStore Explorer (KSE), in its various guises, is a PKI desktop application project I have worked solo on since 2001. While it started as open source software it has been a closed project for most of the subsequent time. For the last year development has stalled due to a lack of motivation on my part. My concern has been that my lack of activity would lead to the whole project dying.
I am therefore happy to report that KSE is now officially open source software. The new owner Kai Kramer answered my call to arms and has been busy since late July remediating all of the impediments to open sourcing the application, completing the features I had slated for version 4.2 and adding extra functionality. The result is KSE 5.0 which is licensed under GPL Version 3.
Release notes for 5.0 are available here. Executable downloads for the usual supported platforms are available here. Finally the highlight is the availability, for the first time since 2004, of the source code.
For my own part, I will be stepping back completely from the project to let Kai and the community take KSE forward.
