Eudora source code released

Computer History Museum (CHM), the world’s leading institution exploring the history of computing and its impact on the human experience, today announced the public release and long-term preservation of the Eudora source code, one of the early successful email clients, as part of its Center for Software History’s Historical Source Code. The release comes after a five-year negotiation with Qualcomm.

The source code for both the Mac and Windows versions are released, and there’s a post on Medium with more details about this latest work by the Computer History Museum.

I’ve never used Eudora in any serious manner, so I don’t have the kind of connection with it that some others have. Still, I am always happy when ‘dead’ software’s source code is released as open source, so that it effectively never dies.
