More verbose replacement for "Cost" column

I suggest replacing the "Cost" column on the software page by a "License" column. Then the very broad "free" could be split into "freeware" (0 cost but not free software) and "free" (i.e. free according to the FSF's definition, which implies source a...

abc2cvm

I noticed my abc2cvm is not listed at http://abcnotation.com/software. Would it make sense to include it there? I have to admit that the number of users is probably very small and unlikely to grow much since it's probably only useful for those that write games or other software for some video game c...

Spam prevention

I'd like to suggest that the "post needing approval" restriction be made more prominent. When I made my first post I did not notice it (people are used to get some page that takes them back to the thread once they have made their post, and don't read the text there), and wondered what had ...

Re: The definitive abc standard

IMO 2.0 is far better suited to be the standard than abcplus. * The abc 2.0 draft much more resembles a standards document compared to the abcplus documentation. The abcplus documentation reds more like an instruction manual, which can be nice for beginners, but is more problematic for implementers ...
