Status Update

Friday January 14th, 2000

David Polberger thought it was worth drawing attention to Jim Roskind's Seamonkey status update on the Status Update page.

Jim talks about dogfood, alpha, beta -- all from an unofficial point-of-view -- and gives a clear look ahead at the next few months of development.

There's a lot to do, but they're making great progress, and I expect M13 (the tree closes for M13 stabilization on the 18th of January) will get a strong reception.

#16 For open source code, only the URL is needed.

This seems very liberal to me, compared to the previous status quo. It looks like open source crypto code can finally be open -- perfect for mozilla.

--quote-- Global Exports of Unrestricted Encryption Source Code

Encryption source code which is available to the public and which is not subject to an express agreement for the payment of a licensing fee or royalty for commercial production or sale of any product developed with the source code may be exported under a license exception without a technical review. The exporter must submit to the Bureau of Export Administration a copy of the source code, or a written notification of its Internet location, by the time of export. Foreign products made with the unrestricted source code do not require review and classification by the U.S. Government for reexport. This license exception should apply to exports of most "open source" software. --quote--
