The popular ad serving publisher software, OpenX Source, has been taken over by new developers who have renamed it Revive Adserver.
Revive Adserver is ad serving software that enables online publishers to serve advertisements on their websites, using a single interface to manage their campaigns from different advertisers and ad networks, set rules to deliver campaigns or specific ads to targeted viewers, and to track and report campaign performance.
Former OpenX project leader Andrew Hill and OpenX senior developer Matteo Beccati head the new team to bring the software up to date and add new functionality.
OpenX Source was previously known as phpAds, OpenAds, and OpenX through version 2.8.11. OpenX Technologies stopped supporting the open source version and removed all information and help from their website.
OpenX issued a press release September 13, 2013 stating:
OpenX has committed the product to a respected team and passionate supporters of the open source movement and the technology. They look forward to continuing to provide free ad serving technology to the large community for which this product has proven valuable.
Revive Adserver has released version 3.0.0, which is an upgrade of OpenX Source. The new release includes bug fixes, security updates and new features.
