Wilson’s O/R Mapper going open source

I’ve been a fan (and user) of Paul Wilson‘s O/R mapper for some time now, having contributed to code generation templates, a service library, and a private Subversion repository for registered owners. I’m happy to say that, as of today, Paul has decided to release his O/R mapper as open source, and I’ve been given the honor of being its caretaker in the process.

The open source release of WilsonORMapper will be hosted on Google Code at http://code.google.com/p/wilsonormapper/. I expect to check-in the first official open source release over the next few days, once I clean up a few things and make the necessary license changes to the source. The code will be released under the New BSD License, which is one of the most permissive open source licenses out there.

Thanks to Paul for all his work over the years and for releasing this wonderful product to the community, and for giving me the go-ahead to make it happen.

And for those keeping score… this is the second product I’ve coerced into full public open source in 2007 (the ASP.Net CSS Adapters, back in March, and now WilsonORMapper). Not bad for a hack like me. 🙂
