Just a day after Ebbe Altberg, new CEO of Linden Lab told me that he had already supported decisions that would simplify the Linden Lab portfolio, this press release went out;

After careful consideration, Linden Lab has decided to cease development and support for dio, Versu, and Creatorverse. We’re grateful for those who took the time to experiment with these products in their early days, but ultimately we have determined that due to a number of factors, we and our customers will be best served by focusing our efforts on continuing to provide exceptional service and compelling new experiences for the users of our other products.

Although it is of course sad to see these products go and very disappointing for those people who still use them, it is good news for the people of Second Life, because it looks like this will allow Linden Lab to concentrate more on their main product, Second Life.
