We’ve been talking about donations within the team the last few weeks/days (== mass e-mail). We decided to put up a donation button for libgdx. I feel like i need to explain the rationale behind it.
Libgdx is free, as in beer for you. For us it means covering recurring and one-time costs, such as paying for the build server, buying new Android devices, buying a Mac to develop for iOS and compile natives for Mac OS X and so on. That means less beer for us, which is bad.
Note that no dontations does not mean the development of libgdx can’t continue.
So, there you have it. It’s for a good cause, we code harder when drunk.
