PHP-Fusion decided quite a while ago to check out the interest for commercial licenses for their software, core and Addons, and after a long journey, the Management Team decided to launch the multi-license plan on October 18th.
They hope that it will please those who wish to develop websites based on PHP-Fusion for commercial purposes, as well as giving Addon Developers, meaning Themes, Infusions etc, a healthy, gentle and competitive push, so that we will have more of unique, innovative and totally far out Addons for the future. At best, multiple license options will give back to our Open Source Community what we currently lack; some vigour, energy and sparkling creativity.
AGPL will still be the main license of choice, we'll always develop Open Source first, but multiple licenses gives the individual Developer out there something to base commercial solutions on. Further information is being drawn up and planned, there are some logistics involved as well, their deadline for release of these licenses is as stated above, Monday October 18th. And since this is a somewhat complicated matter, please have patience if you find any snags or oddities regarding this matter; most likely there will be the odd question which they haven't yet covered or documented, so bear with them.
And, have fun coding!
