Manuscript (FogBugz) Sold to DevFactory

Anil Dash (via Reddit, Hacker News):

But honestly, we’ve been resource-constrained as a small company to do justice to Manuscript, especially as Glitch has taken off and demanded our attention, and the market for software project management tools has gotten more competitive. So recently, we started looking at whether we could find a new home for Manuscript that would provide it with the investment and focus needed to not just support the current users and functionality of the platform, but to expand both.

I’m very interested to see how this turns out.

Update (2018-09-07): Andy Tryba:

Please join me as I unveil our vision and plans for Manuscript at our upcoming Virtual User Conference webinar on Wednesday, September 12th at 10am EDT.

Good thing it’s Eastern time.

Update (2018-09-13): Based on an e-mail I received, it looks like Manuscript is being renamed back to FogBugz and that DevFactory is using a different system for their customer support (rather than eating their own dog food, as Fog Creek did).
