As far as I understand due to utter lack of community support Janje is NOT coming back and the Sloeber Website will expire some time in June (or was it July ?)

Jantje's Patreon account has already been closed.

It takes resources to create a powerful too such as Sloeber.
Thousands of people used the tool every day for tenthousands of compiles. Many demanded features often in a very disrespectful tone, yet very few felt compelled to donate even one dollar through Patreon.

Sloeber might have been free software but what the free stands for is freedom of choice, not free like free beer. There are many more vocal takers in the one source community than there are actually contributors.

This describes the situation very correctly.
Thanks for being my first and longest supporter in this adventure.

I'm bummed that he dropped development.  But I thank him for what he did accomplish.
I joined this whole thing after he already left. 

For those that want something better than the Arduino IDE, there is PlatformIO.

The configuration is not as easy as a menu..  You have to use compiler directives in a file.
But once that's set it's pretty easy to change once you know what you are doing.

I've switched over to that.  I might not have all the features of eclispe, but it has what I need.  I'm still learning VSC (the editor) but it has the syntax checking and auto complete stuff I liked about eclipse

Thanks again Jantje!

Hi Jantje, I'm an occasional (have not really used for a year) user of Sloeber, but I do like this very nice environment you created for us. I was about to start using it for some small hobby projects and to do a donation, but unfortunately patreon was not active anymore. Thanks for all the good work you did !
