Product history

Care2X started as Care 2002 via a SourceForge project started on May 19, 2002.[2] While working on the beta in the summer of 2003, the name changed from Care 2002 to Care2X.[3] Beta work continued on the project until the first official release of Care2X arrived as version 1.1 on January 12, 2004.[1] Work was mostly steady on the project until around 2010. Little in the way of news or updates occurred until a January 2012 release of version 2.6.27 on SourceForge.[1] The status of the project and its future is unknown.

As of May 2021, more than six years have passed since the 2.7 Alpha release. The project is presumed to be discontinued or abandoned at this point.
