10 years of YACReader, thanks for being there!

May 11, 19

Ten years ago I released the first version of YACReader. Since then the project has been growing thanks to all the feedback I have received from the users. I am proud of knowing that some of you have been using YACReader since the first version.

I want to thank you all for being there all these years supporting the project in so many ways. Thanks! And l want to thank to those who have been involved in the project development, I can't thank you enough for every single contribution, specially Felix who has become an indispensable part of the project.

Thanks a lot!
