We want to update the documentation of MapWindow. Using crowdfunding we want to get the necessary funds: http://www.mapwindow.org/pages/donate.php.

Sergei already started with Doxygen and it looks very promissing.
More efforts needs to be done to include code samples, diagrams, cross references, etc.

Help us get this done. We only need a few $100's. Please donate something.
We've got 10.000 users. If everybody donates $10 we can do magic ;)

Thanks,

Paul

We have already received $125 since Paul posted this! Thanks to M.A. Van R. and F. Michael H.

We need $375 more to complete our first cut MapWinGIS.ocx documentation. Please consider donating at http://www.mapwindow.org/pages/donate.php

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! We are at $395. Another $105 will give us the $500 needed to update the MapWinGIS.ocx documentation. Follow along here: http://www.mapwindow.org/pages/donate.php - Dan

OK we (you) did it! Thanks everyone. We have raised $500 which will be sent to Sergei to update the MapWinGIS.ocx documentation. We really appreciate your help. 

Does anyone have a "special request" for our next donation drive? What is the next big thing that needs to be funded on this project?
