        Release Notes: Lintouch Editor now supports locking of templates. Locked templates do not interact with the mouse while the project is being edited, thus making editing of very complex projects with a lot of templates easier. Source code dependence on external SharedPtr and Swaloun Framework has been dropped, thus making compilation from sources easier.

            Re: GPL? Still not true...
            Funny, now the word "commercial" has been replaced by "available on request"...

            GPL? Still not true...
            After some years I checked back again - but the project still is not true GPL. There are several plugins that are commercial - it's funny that the _really_ important ones are commercial. So this software is still not free, still not real GPL and still no open source (not completely at least).

            So it has nothing to do with the real idea of "free software".

            This is not quite true, the project is now (since the beginning of year 2006) completely GPL, there is no commercial dependence or any restrictive license.

            Could you be more specific about what parts "have to be purchased" ???

            no GPL
            this is no GPL project, very basic parts of the software aren't open source, they have to be purchased for very much money. so the license information lies
