Welcome to ScarletDME.org. ScarletDME is a OpenSource MultiValue database, a community fork of OpenQM originally developed by Ladybridge. This project was founded on the 28th November 2008 to independently develop future versions of ScarletDME and contribute to OpenQM. While there are no longer regular official releases from Ladybridge we aim to support and develop for Scarlet to help our commercial sister, While providing a Free and open platform for Multi value development.
Submissions to this project must be under the GPL version 2, with the option to use a later version if the licensee wishes. Or they can be licensed under the LGPL if you wish to encourage and allow incorporation into proprietary products. Contributors to ScarletDME are welcome to submit changes back to Rocket Software as well, for inclusion in the commercial version of OpenQM. However, we're not aware of a method of doing this now that Ladybridge no longer owns OpenQM.

How do I use this site?
