After months of soul searching, I've had to make the very difficult decision that follows. As of May 31st, 2018, the E2V product will be retired, and all online services will be terminated.
Self-hosted customers are welcome to continue using your system. I will no longer be able to provide active support or development, however.
Needless to say, I'll likely be getting an even higher volume of support and other questions than normal. As such, if you IM just to say "bummer" or "can't you just...?" or ask about something covered in this announcement, I will probably not be able to reply - sorry in advance.
I decided to retire this product for many reasons that have been brewing for months. Foremost among them is the issue of simply not having the time/energy to put into a Second Life business like this any more.
While many of my customers work in SL full time, I do not, and never have. I have an extremely demanding first-life job that is requiring increasing amounts of my time and energy, including some traveling, etc. This is the job that pays the bills, so naturally it comes first. I just don't have the time for two jobs any more.
I haven't made this decision lightly. It's taken months of soul searching, and investigating alternative ideas. This decision comes only after finding no other acceptable plan.
