GPL Project Watch List for Week of 02/01


 The GPL v3 Watch List is intended to give you a snapshot of the GPLv3/LGPLv3 adoption for January 26th through February 1st, 2007.

February 1st – Black History Month
As of February 1st our GPL v3 database now contains 1624 GPL v3 projects, as compared to last weeks figure of 1579 GPL v3 projects. The LGPL v3 count remains the same at 150 LGPL v3 projects and the GPL v2 or later number is at 6444 GPL v2 or later projects. We are coming close to the next milestone number of 2000 GPL v3 projects, which should occur within the next two months as long as the adoption rate does not diminish.



New project conversions this week include:

  • Sipo Domain Management System: manage your domains and list order by dates so that you will never forget to renewal the domain.
  • jMmsLib: Java library for encoding/decoding MMS messages. Also provides a simlpe client for sending MMS through a WAP gateway.
  • astahttpd: a Web server for Linux written in pure PHP, mainly targeted for PHP developers. It supports GET, POST, and HEAD request methods, alias directories, CGI script processing, and both IP and name based virtual hosts.


Notable Mention
Palamida actively takes submissions from visitors on updates on new GPL v3/LGPL 3 projects. We are amazed at the number of submissions we have gotten to date, but even more so, we are incredibly grateful to the almost 100 core contributors who have devoted their time and resources at helping us provide up-to-date information.
