New York, NY and Basel, Switzerland (PRWEB) November 16, 2007
Magnolia International Ltd., creator of the open-source Enterprise Content Management System Magnolia, today announced the transition of its Magnolia Community Edition to GPLv3.
GPLv3 is the latest version of the world's most popular open-source license, which has been released in June this year by the Free Software Foundation. Magnolia is the first JSR-170-based Content Management System released under the GNU Public License Version 3 (GPLv3), and one of the first mainstream applications to embrace the new license.
Releasing the Magnolia Community Edition under the OSI-approved GPLv3 provides the Magnolia community with a clear and modern license that grants the essential freedoms of open-source software to its users and protects their investment into the code base.
Magnolia provides its software in two editions:
- the Magnolia Community Edition is licensed under the GPLv3 and available as a free download from http://www.magnolia.info
- the Magnolia Enterprise Edition is a commercial open-source product with additional Enterprise functionality and support. It is licensed under the Magnolia Network Agreement, which provides the guarantees and protection enterprises expect.
Magnolia is considered one of the top 30 Web Content Management Systems by virtue of inclusion in the independent industry-leading CMS-Watch report. Magnolia is renowned for its outstanding combination of ease-of-use and enterprise architecture. It is used to power the digital communication ranging from governments to leading FORTUNE 500 enterprises in more than 100 countries on all six continents of the world.
