EULA for Opera Desktop Browser for Open Source Operating Systems
Monday, May 3, 2010 12:00:14 AM
We released snapshot 6330
just minutes after I left the office on Friday. In my rush and because I wasn't certain if we were going ahead with a snapshot or not, I never told Haavard to draw more attention to the license. The big change is that it should make it easier for distros to include us in their online repositories. Those of you who have followed my posts on this subject (in the 'My Opera' forums and a couple of distro specific sites) will know that I have been trying to get us to find a way to make it easier for distros to redistribute Opera. The latest EULA is as a result of some of that internal discussion. A little time and feedback and will allow us to find out if this is more workable than its predecessor or if further tweaks are still needed.
You will find a copy of the new license within the packages for snapshot 6330
. Alternatively, you can also get a copy here
