License

On October 23, 2014, I decided to abandon the (L)GPL licenses and adopt the MIT license for my programs, in order to avoid problems some people see with using software that is licensed under the LGPL in other software (even though the LGPL actually permits use in proprietary programs, while the GPL does not). I hope to remove these and related problems by switching to the MIT license.

The transition to the new license will be accomplished with new versions that get published. The following applies:


For any version published on or after October 23, 2014:

(MIT license, or more precisely Expat License; to be found in the file mit-license.txt in the directory <prgname>/doc in the source package of the program, see also opensource.org and wikipedia.org)
