As part of the Creative Europe funded Mobilise/Demobilise project, the new platform will function on mobile devices as well as desktop computers (no longer dependent on Flash) and incorporate other enhancements. Lead developer for this project is Paul Rohrlach, and the team includes Gloria W. and Nguyen Hong Phat. Read more here.

UpStage is an open source software development; we welcome any interested developers to join the team.
