zAurum mass payment software

Other subprojects are in «planning» stage; when they are closer to development, there will be more news on them.
As projects grow, I will be in need of assistance of many kinds. Please visit the zAurum project page from time to time if you can help me.
There are forums and mailing lists on zAurum project page. Please refer to those to provide your suggestions, comments and so on. Those are most effective support means -- the more popular is the software, the more interesting it is to develop it.
You can support the project in many ways; but please keep in mind that this is free software. Although you can donate to this project and this will most probably speed up greatly the development, you are not obliged to, as long as you comply with the license under which the software is released.
