Funding & Software status



Kickstarter crowdfunding failed at 66% of the goal reached.

Now funding next step with direct fundraising!

Here you see the progress of my "direct crowdfunding" alternative to the Kickstarter campaign. Any contribution welcome, it will be used to secure the future of a free spectroscopy tool for science!
The complete feature list below can be completed with a funding sum of EUR 25,000. Any lower sum will result in fewer new features implemented. You will see the progress made in funding as well the progress in implementation. Spending less time on a certain topic than estimated, frees up money for other additional topics. I will make changes to the table as progress is made. If I work on something else, it will not show up here and not burn the funding sum!

Total funding sum (since May 2016). New € 12,000 funding goal already reached in time!

€ 13,931

Overview: funded tasks (as laid out in the Spekwin32 Masterplan) & state of implementation

Since mid of June, I am working on it. See the "Done" column for what's already finished.
On Nov. 11 2016, the first version of Spectragryph v1.0 was released. Further work is ongoing.
See the new website for the new software: http://www.spectragryph.com
