how old is OF?

when was its first release?
(couldn’t find any year / date anywhere)

this is a hard question to answer, because OF has evolved organically from another library that is even older.

that said, i think some of the first releases/pre-releases (0.01+) were in late 2006/early 2007.

a good place to look is archive.org, which has some of the earlier versions of the OF website:

I remember attending one of the first workshops in Sept 2006 before they even had a domain name :slight_smile:

talking to zach + theo yesterday, they were remembering as far back as late 2004 where there were OF workshops at parsons. back then the numbering scheme was different for the releases, and they went through 0.01 all to 0.06 and further.
