"SugarCRM Inc... today announced the upcoming release of Sugar
Community Edition 5.0 will be licensed under the new Version 3 of
the GNU General Public License (GPL). The GPL is the most widely

"'We are proud to adopt the GPL V3 with our next major Sugar
Community Edition release,' said John Roberts, CEO and co-founder

Software Foundation (FSF) for leading such an important effort to
deliver the most modern FOSS license. The FSF undertook a very
difficult process and incorporated many diverse developer and user
needs and combined them into a fair and just representation of what
FOSS means to our communities...'"
