With the strong debate in the Joomla world regarding the GPL, I’ve learned a lot about it. Just when I’m starting to get a handle on it, the Free Software Foundation officially announced the release of the General Public License v3 today.
â€œSince we founded the free software movement, over 23 years ago, the free software community has developed thousands of useful programs that respect the user’s freedom. The programs are in the GNU/Linux operating system, as well as personal computers, telephones, Internet servers, and more. Most of these programs use the GNU GPL to guarantee every user the freedom to run, study, adapt, improve, and redistribute the program,â€ said Richard Stallman, founder and president of the FSF.
Now the question is, what will the adoption rate of this new license?
- GPL v3 to be released today (OpenSourceCommunity.org)
- Over 5500 Projects Slated to Adopt GPL 3
- GPL v3 due Friday â€” donâ€™t trip over the lawyers at the Apple Store
