After having discussed the topic for at least a year, off and on, and agreed
upon by the developers, and after having seen the example set by SimGear,
etc., JSBSim is changing its license to LGPL (the Lesser GPL).
More and more inquiries have been made regarding the use of JSBSim in a
commercial setting - not necessarily for commercial products for sale, but
for internal projects. The feeling is that the LGPL would make JSBSim more
palatable for use by these companies. This kind of exposure should be
beneficial to JSBSim, to widen acceptance and grow the user base, and in
turn to receive more input on features, bug reports, etc.
