DSS Open sourced!

I just noticed that DSS was open sourced: https://github.com/LucCoiffier/DSS
Perhaps we can now find out how it manages to always white balance the images :)

With DSS now being open source does this mean in theory it could be intergrated into Startools ? And are there any plans to intergrate a stacking module into startools

From the DSS readme:

Copyright: the source is open, though it doesn't mean that you can create a commercial software from it. That's about the only limitation


And in general it would not be as simple as that, even with a different license. E.g. a big part of the code is UI.
