Squeak 4.0 - Clean License

March 16, 2010 11:27:53.829

Squeak just hit an interesting milestone - earlier this month the Squeak website posted the following:

The Squeak Oversight Board plans to finalize the multi-year effort of re-licensing Squeak. Squeak 4.0 is scheduled to be released on Monday, March 15th, 2010 and will be licensed under the MIT License with some original parts remaining under the Apache License.

Then a few minutes ago, Randal Schwartz let me know that 4.0 was out, and downloadable. So the long awaited Squeak with a clean license release has arrived. It's a great time for Smalltalk!

Keep in mind that this is a *legal* release, not a *technical* release. It has precisely the same bugs as 3.10.2, although it does have the new closure-aware VM (needed to minimize the confusion as we move toward 4.1).
