¿Where is Dataphor?

I wonder where is Alphora Dataphor nowadays. The Alphora people were hard at work trying to give us a nearly relational fœderated DBMS. I was expecting for earlier ðis year (perhaps unwarranted) a verſion running on Mono (or DotGNU Portable.Net) and PoſtgreSQL, but heard noþing elſe except ðat ðey were working on ðeir own ſtorage engine.

Ðe þing is, I would like to recommend ðeir tool to ſome people doing web apps, but I can’t in good conſcience recommend MS Windows ſervers.

Ðe only oðer alternative I ſee now, since Alfredo Novoa’s project ſeems dormant, would be Rel maturing faſt, but somehow ðis does not ſeem probable at all, being ſtuck at an α verſion since January.

Dataphor is alive and well. It is now OpenSource.

The database consulting group is now the owner of Dataphor.

In ſhort, while the DCG indeed freed Dataphor, all is not well... I will blog about ſoon.
