Not a Number(NaN) Technologies NV, Dutch owners of the well regarded Blender modelling freeware program, has filed for bankruptcy in the Amsterdam Court.

In a message posted on its web site, Gil Agnew, managing director of NaN Holding (the parent company of NaN Technologies), blamed slow sales of Blender Publisher for its decision.

"The digital media market has shown that it is not quite ready for the Blender technology offering, both for the Internet and for wireless applications," according to Agnew. More investment is required and the company wants to talk to third parties about this, he says.

So is there a future for Blender? Agnew seems to think so. But in the meantime it's on ice. All website activities and development are frozen, although existing orders through the online shop will be fulfilled. ®
