Caligari Truespace now Free??!!??

Caligari Truespace 7.6 (amazing 3d design program) just went from somewhere around $500 USD to free. I can't seem to figure out why, but there must be something. I just don't get it. Can someone help me?

That's pretty cool. I've never heard of it before though. Is it similar to blender?

This inspired blender, if I remember right. So yes, it is very similar to blender. I used blender before it was free, but now that it's free, I might switch.
Well I'll definitely check out Caligari. I've used blender for a while but this program sounds pretty good.
