Since (R)?ex is completely developed by volunteers, there is no guarantee that a specific feature will be released at a defined date. If you need a specific feature, you can sponsor it, so we may focus our efforts on that feature. Those sponsored features will also be released under the same license as (R)?ex itself, to guarantee that it will be maintained like any other feature. Please contact us for further details.

If you are looking for something custom-made, you may be interested in checking out our Support page.


There can't be enough hardware where we can test and build (R)?ex. If you can donate any kind of hardware, please contact us.
