The CIP4 tools are open source and maintained by volunteers. If you would like to improve the quality of these tools either by coding, testing or providing translations to new languages, please sign up here.
CIP4 SDKs and tool source code are available as open source but not free; they are made possible by CIP4 member dues and contributions in time and effort by members. You are welcome to use these resources for development, but as soon as you begin selling software that incorporates the CIP4 SDKs and tool source code you are expected to join CIP4 and maintain CIP4 membership.
