Are the v2 softwares going to be gplv3 or continue with the apache licensing?

AutobahnPython, AutobahnJS and AutobahnAndroid are and _will_ stay Apache 2.0 license. There are absolutely no plans to change that.

Why are you asking?

The reason I asked is because the company I work for won’t let me use specific open source licenses. gplv3 is one of them. I’ve made a pretty good case to move from polling to web sockets using Autobahn.

I see. In fact, our general policy is that AutobahnXXX are frameworks/libraries, which should be liberally licensed, since users
would use them while directly binding with their application code. And that should be possible even for closed-source, proprietory application code. The licensing is liberal, but should protect us ("use as-is, at your own risk, with no warranties, and don't sue us").

This is different for Crossbar.io (http://crossbar.io/), which is an integrated, complete server package. Here, no application code runs inside or directly bound to Crossbar.io. User code is supposed to run outside Crossbar.io, possibly based on Autobahn. So no licensing issues arise for user code. Crossbar.io _itself_ is licensed under AGPL 3.0. But as said, this doesn't "infect" user code in any way.

For completeness:

I forgot AutobahnTestsuite: same applies => is and will stay Apache 2.0

And: should we decide to develop a new AutobahnYYY library supporting another host language, that would be Apache 2.0 also.

good case to move from polling to web sockets using Autobahn.

Great;)
