Google recently established a deal to acquire AppJet, the company behind EtherPad, a collaborative Web-based editing tool. Google aims to leverage some of AppJet's technology in its own Wave communication service.

When the acquisition was announced last week, enthusiastic users of the service expressed dismay upon learning that the free version was going to be shut down. In response to the concerns voiced by the EtherPad user community, Google and AppJet revised their transition strategy and decided to leave the service up and running until the source code could be made fully available to the public.
