Squeak and Free Software

The original Squeak release is available under APSL2. The APSL2 is listed as a GPL-Incompatible, Free Software License so this means we have a version of Squeak that is Free Software.

“This is a free software license, incompatible with the GNU GPL. We recommend that you not use this license for new software that you write, but it is ok to use and improve the software released under this license. More explanation is available. “

Thats good news. You can read the discussion on the Squeak-dev mailing list for more info.

Here’s my Squeak and Croquet project research page. I’ll update it soon. Take a look at the Squeaklet Demo and the Squeak and Croquet page at the wiki s growing as well.
