Inform 7 finally to be open-sourced.
Only took, um... thirteen years?
This is why I gave up on Inform 7. Now it feels far too little, far too late. Just not part of that community any more. I've never understood why Graham was so obsessively micro-managing of it all, and his fundamental design decisions were so.... odd. Aggressively, bafflingly, odd. And held so tightly.

Kiwano (Cucumis metuliferus) is a kind of fruit in the melon and cucumber family, sometimes called horned melons or jelly melons by English speakers. These fruit are native to Sub-Saharan Africa, where they're a traditional food source. They're also now grown in parts of Europe, Oceania, and the Americas, and I have one growing on my desk!
You can also spot them in the background in all kinds of sci fi and fantasy movies, including Star Wars, DS9, and Avengers: Endgame.
