New Media Arts, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit in the U.S. has announced plans to do what it can to support and stimulate Opensim development. As an unfunded opensource project, Opensim has long depended on the volunteer efforts of developers. While these developers have been quite skilled and generous, the lack of a direction or roadmap or even a general sense of what people want has led to uneven progress.
