This is just a note to those who may be users of PAISLEI and LPM.

My focus in the future with pattern matching will be almost entirely
in the theoretical end, and will not include future versions of this
technology. I spend enough time during the day developing software
that doing it in my off-hours has become redundant. (For example:

And so - PAISLEI and LPM will not be updated or distributed. I may
sell the technology, but only if the buyer is willing to allow the
current licensing scheme (free use all around for non-commercial and
academic users of previous versions) to stand. If they are not
willing to do that... I will just shelf the technology and allow all
users to continue using the current version under this free-use

I would like to express my sincerest sense of gratitude to the scores
of people who have offered comments, bug fixes, feedback, and so on
during the life of LPM and PAISLEI. This technology has been a
singular passion for years, and the many supporters who have given me
feedback have made it entirely worth my time.

Yours with gratitude,

Quinn Tyler Jackson
