Official Statement Regarding Xamarin.Forms rebranding as MAUI
Today May 19, 2020, we were notified by a couple of users at the KDE Maui Project Telegram channel about a name change of a Microsoft product, the UI framework.
As it is the case, both are UI frameworks to create cross-platform applications, which does not help the situation. We created the Maui Project in 2018, announcing it for the first time on June 10 of the same year, as per our calculations, that is two years before Microsoft introduced this change into their product.
You would have thought Microsoft had learned after the GVFS
ordeal a couple of years ago. Let's hope this gets a similar resolution, which in the end may actually be a benefit for the actual MAUI toolkit.
