Eastwood licensing

Postby wsnyder6 » Thu Jun 19, 2008 1:58 am

Hello,

Are there any considerations for a commercial-friendly Eastwood license? ( I am not against paying anything for such a license). Just curious - but why it is GPL when JFreeChart is LGPL?

Thanks.

Hi Bill,

The client that helped fund the initial development requested the licence. They've since indicated that it will be OK to use a more permissive open source licence, so I'm looking at that now.

Regards,

Gilbert,

just so that you know that the license mentioned on the website is still GPLv3.

Regards,

The website will be updated when the next version of Eastwood is released.

Hello!

Just curious, what is the new license that will be used? (And when is the next release scheduled ;) )

Eastwood 1.1.0 is available today, and uses the same licence as JFreeChart (GNU LGPL 2.1 or later).
