Based on what I see in the license in the distribution, you can freely
modify the code as long as you provide the license disclaimer.

I have run into a number of problems with Piccolo2D as well and am willing
to help you in your forking effort. My research group has a number of needs
that are not being met by the current code base. ZVTM is another zoomable
library, but is too far off the Java standard way for me to be too
interested in adapting it. Piccolo just needs a little modernizing love.


Let me know if you are interested and we'll start to figure out the details.

I know about the stalled work that is already there for java6.


It's no where near to maximizing the currently available language features
and APIs.

e.g. No generics?


I have also read issue 190. The last comment pretty much sums up the problem
I'm trying to correct.

Not only was Java 5 EOL, but Java 6 will be soon. Java 7 has been out for
over a year.


I want to branch. The branch will break backward compatibility.

People who either can not or will not use the branch, do not have to.

That's why it's a "branch".


Is there something specif in the license that prohibits me from creating a
branch or just opening up

another google code project and proceeding from there?
