I have some very good news to share with everyone (especially software developers). An update for Little Software Stats has finally been released. Some probably were starting to wondering about the future of Little Software Stats, as it’s been quite a while since any update has been released (which there hasn’t been any update until now). I’ve been busy with other things and have been meaning to make time to update Little Software, but didn’t until now.
Runtime intelligence software (usually referred to as simply ‘RI’), is a method of gauging, analyzing and collecting data or information on the use of software applications. Different professions, and different people, tend to have an assortment of names for the same ability, so when we say ‘runtime intelligence’ we also mean: software intelligence, software business intelligence, software usage analytics and so forth.
This post is to bring to light the few people out there that thinks it is okay to take Little Apps’ software and sell it without permission. These people think that it’s totally fine to take somebody elses hard work, change a few things and sell it like they created it. They do not realize the time that goes into making this software nor do they know anything about licensing. All these people seem to care about is how they can profit off of it.
Runtime Intelligence (RI) provides a consistent and reliable means to measure and monitor the business impact of the existing net applications, as well as the ongoing development investments within the company, including the planned IT modernization initiatives. Professionals within a given company rely greatly on information when it comes to making an informed decision.
I was came to the realization that I haven’t been prompted to update the GeoIP database for Little Software Stats in a couple months so I figured I should do a check on whats up. After noticing the date on the GeoIP.dat file was for July, I knew right away that something wasn’t right. Long story short, it turned out there was a problem with file permissions and therefore it wasn’t showing that there was an update (when there was).
Back in April, we said that we were working on a new software program called “Little Software Stats”. Today, Little Apps is proud to announce the first release of Little Software Stats. This release is version 0.1 and we have codenamed it “Diamond”. Little Software Stats allows software developers to keep track of how their software is being used. This is the first run-time intelligence software to be released as free and open source.
In case anyone hasn’t noticed yet, we have been hard at work on a new project called “Little Software Stats”. Here are some answers to some of your questions that you may have wondering…
