Thank goodness someone has developed a free as in speech Java SSH2 client. Ever since Mindterm went proprietary, this has been a sore spot. Keep up the good work!
Re: The license of MindTerm v1.99
This raises an interesting issue. I assume v1.99 is not a complete rewrite. So, if any GPL code from v1.2.1 was contained in it, it would be in violation of the GPL. But, since Mindterm is the company that has the rights to enforce the license and is unlikely to sue themselves, it's a defacto acceptable violation.
Interesting situation to think about for other commercial, GPL projects.
