Alfresco Community License Shifts to LGPL

Alfresco announced they will be changing from the GPL license to a LGPL license for Alfresco Community. While GPL is the most common open source license in use today, Alfresco feels that an LGPL license will best suit their plans for their software platform moving forward. One of the key differences between LGPL and the current GPL is that after linking to the Alfresco software, it will not affect the status license of the proprietary software linking to it. The license change will be incorporated into the next update to Alfresco Community, which is due for release in March. www.alfresco.com/
