Good bye, STM-8?

Just received a letter from Raisonance(aka KEOLAB). They changed their license policy. Their 32kb-limited compiler isn't free anymore. It costs (TADAAAM!!) 700 euro per computer. The only alternative is cosmic compiler, which is 32kb-limited too, and has 1 year time limit.

All that crap means there will be NO open-source projects, NO hobbyists(like me) who use STM8 chips.

Looks like these guys pushed us back to 80th, dark world without any open software, to astronomical prices for MCU tools.

It's pity, I liked these processors, I liked discovery boards, but I'm forced to migrate all my projects to AVR or ARM chips. I'll spent all my stm8 chips and I'm not going to buy them anymore.

Good bye, sweet prince.
