Pembangunan WhatsApp+ Secara Rasminya Dihentikan
Baru semalam saya nukilkan bahawa ramai pengguna WhatsApp+ yang disekat penggunaannya oleh pelayan WhatsApp, hari ini secara rasmi pula pembangun asal WhatsApp+ iaitu Rafalense mengumumkan pembangunan untuk WhatsApp+ dihentikan serta-merta.
Co-owner dan maintainer Google Plus Community untuk WhatsApp+ iaitu Dr. Mounib Al Rifai dalam posnya mengatakan bahawa:
We have received a cease and desist letter from WhatsApp and we are obligated to remove all download links and unfortunately delete this community...
Am really sorry for this but it's out of our hands and WhatsApp has pushed us into a corner that we can't escape this time..
It was a fun ride but it has come to an end..
Deepest regards from Rafalense and me and all the whatsapp+ team for your support
For clarification because people are giving me credit while it should go to Rafalense. I am NOT the developer of WhatsApp+ the developer is Rafalense I am just the co owner and the person responsible for maintaining the google plus community...
*21 January 2015 RIP WhatsApp+*
Tidak lupa juga posnya dalam WhatsApp+ Development Community, beliau mengatakan bahawa:
Due to the circumstances that arose and the fact that WhatsApp Inc issued a cease and desist letter to WhatsApp+ developer Rafalense. the official WhatsApp+ community is shutting down for good and will be removed by the end of the day as for the development of the app itself Rafalense had this to say
"WhatsApp+ development is stopped since yesterday night and I will not continue with any development or support of it"
So it's official WhatsApp+ is dead and there will be no further development of it as Rafalense stated.
I would like to say on behalf of Rafalense and the WhatsApp+ team that we appreciate every ones support over the years and thanks you for being there for us but our journey has ended..
Yours truly Dr. Mounib Al Rifai ( WhatsApp+ official community owner)Selamat tinggal WhatsApp+. Ia akan dirindui.
