If Zimbra had also released 8.8.15p9 repackaged as 9.0 OSS would we be having this conversation?
If Synacor had released a V9 OSS package, with the modern UI being a NE addon, it would have resulted in much less consternation or confusion. Why didn't this happen? The most plausible reason in my mind is that this is just the first step in a complete divergence, where the OSS edition will be put out to pasture when EOL happens and things moving forward will be closed only.
Of course, this is just my opinion, one which I hope is wrong (there are other plausible reasons - maybe this a kick in the pants to the community to contribute more). But based on the information we have right now, divergence is the reason which I think is most likely, in the absence of clear communication from Synacor on plans moving forward.
