I've been maintaining and evolving Fine Uploader faithfully on an almost daily basis since mid-2012. But I no longer rely on Fine Uploader myself, and have lost the motivation and time to continue supporting and evolving this library.

Fine Uploader has a large user base, and many projects built on top of it, including React Fine Uploader. I'm looking for a new dedicated maintainer to continue to support and evolve Fine Uploader and its related projects. I have a lot of big plans for the project, but I feel the time has come to pass the torch on to someone else. Please respond here if you are interested.

Hi Ray, I'm Steph, the CTO at MASV.io (LiveQoS Inc.) based in Ottawa, Canada.

MASV.io is a new SaaS offering that caters to the Media & Entertainment, massive file transfer vertical.

Timing is everything! I'm in the midst of planning next 6-12 months which includes major features for our Rush web uploader, as well as MASV REST API, and was considering flipping over from our in-house uploader to FineUploader.

I have a small team of developers, skin in the game, and an interest in monetizing usage of our cloud, but not the tools that promote such usage.

Would you consider someone from or team to maintain it? I can offer you an assurance that we'll have the community's interest in mind and keep your baby alive.

Would be great to speak to you actually, I'd like to know more about you and see if we have any common interests. I can also share with you my vision of MASV and how FU would benefit. Regardless, I would really like to hear your vision for FineUploader and know what you wish you had time to do. Do you have time for a call next week Wed-Fri?

Thanks for your time,
steph@masv.io

Thanks for this Steph. I'll be in London all next week for Holacracy training, but perhaps we can coordinate and speak via phone sometime in the evening UTC. I'll follow up with an email shortly.

Hi Ray,

I am Martin. We are a small team based in Austria developing a Plattform where file upload is an essential part. So we have an interest in having a properly maintained library we can build upon. I can picture us becoming maintainer of the FineUploader project.

Let me know about your plans. I dropped you a message in Skype.

Unfortunately nothing has panned out on this front. But it looks like I will have some time and motivation to address some of the bigger feature requests as part of my work on BrickFTP.

Reopening as support requests are increasing and my time to work on some key features has been pushed back slightly due to other commitments

Well, finding a suitable maintainer has been far more difficult than I anticipated.

I wish I could help but it's not part of my skill set, however I'm curious about something you wrote- "But I no longer rely on Fine Uploader myself,..." What do you use instead of Fine Uploader?

@ScotsScripts Actually, that is no longer true. I do indeed rely on Fine Uploader and React Fine Uploader in a project i'm working on with my new/current employer. In fact, I have some substantial changes in progress that have been under observation in my environment for a little while now - #1939

Just curious as I read your Medium story on how this came to be.

You said you used to do this on your free time but it wasn't worth it until you started charging for licenses which made you good money then your company Widen took over the project and was providing you with a team or allowing you to work on this as part of your employment.

Is that no longer the case seeing as you have a "new employer"? Since you continue to own it, does that mean Widen never officially sponsored it?

Since that is the case, why don't you go back to your old licensing model. Free for community use, license for commercial use.

@rcheung9 I have no plans to ever charge for Fine Uploader again in any capacity. It will remain FOSS for as long as I'm around.
