Intent to Change License for Squeak 4.0


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. This release will be functionally equivalent to the previous 3.10.2 release. Current development work will be released as 4.1 as soon as possible following the release of 4.0.

This notice is intended as a “last call” before the actual license change takes effect. We have assembled re-licensing agreements from every identifiable contributor. However, if you have contributed to Squeak or know of someone who has contributed and has not been contacted about the re-licensing effort, this notice is intended to make you aware of the upcoming change and to allow you to contact the Squeak Oversight Board regarding your contributions before the license change takes place.

Please distribute this notice widely. Questions or comments should be sent to
