fork (of software project)

How do you say "fork" in reference to a software project? It means a spin-off from an original common code base for technical or political reasons or loss of interest by the original developers.

For example:
"E-UAE is a 100% software Amiga (500) hardware emulator. It is a fork
of the original named "uae", largely based on changes made for the
windows fork of uae, WinUAE."

My guess would be "bifurcation".

Thanks in advance once again.
