That was a fast decision; isn't there anything to do so that you change
your mind about that?
I believe this software you kindly and freely provide for Windows users
could be useful to people. Besides, your online documentation is great!
Don't you already have users following your releases?

Just write here, in this English-speaking hierarchy :)

By the way, what is different between INN and NNTPd?

Le 21-08-2017, Byung-Hee HWANG (황병희, 黃炳熙) nous expliquait dans
news.software.nntp (<yw.87inh...@lambda.alex.chromebook>) :
Codosoft NNTPd is (was ?) a NNTP server for Windows with a complete GUI.
A project far from what INN is and that could help some Windows users to
run a NNTP server.

Was.

Btw, I recently accepted an offer and sold the source code to a third
party. I have no further information on the future of this software and
I don't know if it will be published again.

But, for sure, it will not be under the same name.

It's surprising that NNTP software would be /that/ valuable these days
:) but hopefully you came out better for your hard work!

Best of luck. Hopefully it benefits the dwindling usefulness of NNTP
altogether!

Regards,
Kevin
