Autodesk buys Mentor, releases CS-MAP to OSGeo
Many fun and interesting things went down at FOSS4G this year. One of the more interesting was Geoff Zeiss' announcement of Autodesk's acquisition of Mentor. In addition, Autodesk was going to release CS-MAP to OSGeo. Adena's take is worth reading.
It's going to be interesting to see how Autodesk's commoditization of this complement to their offerings is going to affect offerings like Blue Marble's GeoCalc libraries, as well as OSGeo's offerings.
