I have temporarily removed bitext2tmx 1.0M0 packages from
There is a GPL violation in one of the included libraries that has
caused me to do so. This has been done as a precaution to protect
user's right and freedoms when expecting to be able to use the
application under the GPL free software license.
I am currently in the process of righting code to replace the
offending portions. The code I am writing functions to a degree, but
needs a little further testing. Hopefully, I will be able to have
new packages up in the near future (later today is likely).
In the interim, to protect users interests, please do not use the
1.0M0 version, or distribute it. A proper replacement is coming.
Also note, users of OmegaT+ and OmegaT are also using software that
violates the GPL and possibly other free software licenses. Please
refrain from using those software until the situation has been
remedied. In the case of OmegaT+, the same code I am writing for
bitext2tmx is to be in there also, that will be fixed around the
same time as B2T.
As for OmegaT, they have been notified of the situation. Thus, far
they have not taken the appropriate actions to remedy the situation
for their users and there is no sign that they intend to take the
proper steps as far as I know.
