What terms and conditions may the source code be used?

Kamaelia is released under Apache 2 License. This means that you must preserve headers, and not take credit that's not yours to take, and use it anyway you like. And if you break it, you get to keep both pieces.

  • Please note though: The Apache 2 license boils down to meaning that you can use Kamaelia code in any project of your choice without releasing your code.
  • Use it, enjoy it, share it, please share back. (but you don't have to)

NB: Any comments on this page are not legal advice.

For reference, this the apache license can be found here

Previous License

Kamaelia has previously been released under the Mozilla trilicense scheme (MPL/GPL/LGPL). Which allowed you to accept either the Mozilla Public License 1.1, the GNU General Public License 2.0 or the Lesser General Public License 2.1.

Why Change ?

The change was made to be more developer friendly and interoperate with other projects better. Given that was the reason for change please note that you can continue to use new releases of Kamaelia under those terms as well, if need be. (They're more restrictive than the Apache license)
