No News is usually Good News, but...
Feb 18, 2008 Dean is excited to report that he has accepted an offer from Autodesk to take over development of the Maya API on a full-time basis. Unfortunately this means that as of today Gooroos Software's commercial operations have ceased. We'd like to thank our customers for a great nine years, filled with interesting Maya challenges.

For those of you still using our free plugins, stay tuned because we'll soon be making the source code for them available for free download and distribution: you'll be able to do what you want with it!


Jun 14, 2006 Once again the falling US dollar has forced us to increase the US rates for our services, this time by 8%. As usual, our Canadian rates remain unchanged.
Dec 6, 2004 Wow. Haven't updated the news in two years. When you're busy, it's always the web-site that suffers...

  • Added some kudos which we've had sitting around for a while now to our praise page.
  • Raised the US rates for our services to at least partially make up for the plummeting value of the US dollar. Our Canadian rates remain unchanged.
  • Posted versions of our free plugins for Maya 6.0 and the current 6.5 beta.
  • The resource names for our plugins now include the Maya version. Thus the Linux RPM for annotation plugin for Maya 6.0 now installs it as gsAnnotation_m60. The advantage of this is that you can have the plugin installed for different versions of Maya at the same time. That may not matter to most of you, but it makes things a lot simpler for us.
  • We've eliminated the downloads for Maya 4.0 and earlier since anyone who still uses such old versions and needs our plugins likely already has them.

Nov 18, 2002 The source for version 3.0 of automod is now available for download. New features include a watchList for troublesome posters, so that their posts get forwarded to a moderator for approval, and a much-requested improvement to the 'Critical Error' messages from the bot: they now return a copy of the article that failed.

This version of automod has actually been in use for several months, but we just hadn't gotten time to put it up on the site until now.


Nov 18, 2002 Our Maya plugins have been updated to work with version 4.5 of Maya. The plugins are now distributed in RPM format for Linux and as an executable installer for Win2K. So no more copying files around by hand, and uninstalling is a breeze.

May 10, 2001 Maya NT 4.0 plugin versions added. *whew*. Right on top of it this time!

April 27, 2001 Linux Maya 3.0 plugin versions added!

April 4, 2001 Added Maya NT 3.0 plugin versions, finally. Hey, Maya 4.0 isn't quite out yet.

March 2, 2001 Added code to allow linking to individual pages within this site without losing our frames.

Tested it with IE 4.0, IE 5.5, Netscape 4.7, Mozilla 0.81, and Opera 5.0. Let me know if it doesn't work with your browser (well, yes, you have to have JavaScript turned on :-).


February 26, 2000 Added a bragging page with praise from our customers.
