This page removed at the request of the ABC’s legal department. Read the notice here. (2 page PDF)

To those that have e-mailed me asking why the download is broken, this is why.

    Hi Jeremy, It’s a good thing the ABC legal Department haven’t a clue about software, source-code, etc. Thank you for making the information available for all to use. One of these days the powers that be will wake up and understand the world they live in. Anything I can do to help spread the word, let me know. Best wishes.

    Perhaps you should see this as an opportunity to work with the ABC to provide (a modified version of) python-iview to everyone via the ABC web site. They could advertise it as a service to linux users everywhere. At the same time you could perhaps mention the concept of html5 :-)
    And a thankyou to Garry (above) for alerting the ABC legal dept to other possibilities ; ie that their work is not yet done :-(

      Tried it. No avail.

      The problem is not that Python-iView unofficial. The problem is that Python-iView does things that the ABC doesn’t want it to do.

      An “official” version of Python-iView would be useless, because it would lose the very features that makes it worthwhile.
