GPL Project Watch List for Week of 12/07


The GPL v3 Watch List is intended to give you a snapshot of the GPLv3/LGPLv3 adoption for November 30th through December 7th, 2007.

December Pearl Harbor Day
December is finally here as we all wind down for the years end. The GPL v3 list is currently at 1276 GPL v3 projects, which is 42 new GPL v3 projects from last weeks number of 1234 GPL v3 projects. Our latest push on LGPL v3 projects has brought our database to 122 LGPL v3 projects, an increase of 27 new LGPL v3 projects and breaking the 100 project mark for LGPL v3 projects. The GPL v2 or later figure has also grown to 6356 GPL v2 or later projects, compared to last weeks number of 6286 GPL v2 or later projects.

 

New project conversions this week include:

  • Another Gallery: Agal is a themable web photo album that supports transparent rollover buttons.
  • DrumTrack: An open source software drum machine for Windows that allows the editing, playback, and mixdown of complete drum scores using audio samples in a variety of formats (WAV, OGG, MP3, AIFF, FLAC, MP2, WMA). Mixdown to WAV audio supported.
  • Java Graticule 3D: a simple tool to estimate a local geodetical 3d-net by a least-square-adjustment (LSA) called Gauß-Markov-Model (GMM).

Sun opens war chest for Open Source developers

And it chose — deliberately — to make this global announcement in Bangalore on Friday, on the sidelines of the annual free and open source software conference — foss.in.
