Renegade is a Bulletin board system (BBS) written for IBM PC-compatible computers running MS-DOS. It was written in Pascal by Cott Lang and gained popularity in the early 1990s. Renegade is based on the source code to Telegard, and was available free of charge. This was one of the reasons it became the most popular BBS software in use at the time. [1]

After the decline of BBS usage in the late 1990s, Cott Lang ceased development work on Renegade and passed it on to other programmers. Although minor changes have been made such as Y2K fixes, there have been no significant changes to Renegade for some time. Corey Snow currently has the source code and is managing a project to rewrite Renegade as open source software. However the project doesn't appear to have made progress since its inception in 2002.
