25,000 Downloads of Open Exhibits!

We just surpassed 25,000 downloads of Open Exhibits software!  The release of Open Exhibits 3 has really accelerated the download count and we’re thrilled to see how many developers have already tried it out. If you want to know more about what is included in Open Exhibits 3, please see the announcement from last week.

Over the last three years,  we’ve worked hard to develop a powerful and flexible HCI software framework. Of course we can’t take all of the credit, we’ve had a lot of input and help from all of you in the Open Exhibits community.  Your help in building modules, your suggestions, and your support have made this major milestone possible.

Open Exhibits has also received major support from the National Science Foundation (DRL#1010028).  NSF backing and the support from the Informal Science Education (ISE) community at-large helped launch Open Exhibits with the idea that it could help transform how computer-based exhibits are developed in museums, planetariums, and other ISE venues. There is plenty of work still to be done, but 25,000 downloads is a milestone worth celebrating.

Thanks everyone and congratulations!
