Just saw "IBM Contributes Technology for Developing Multilingual Applications", about the release of "IBM Classes for Unicode". The referenced press release can also be found at http://ibm.com/linux.

Note in particular the subheading, "New licensing, a collaboration with the open source community". There's now yet another source license -- IBM Public License Version 1.0, first officially used with ICU.

We are now using this license for Jikes, http://ibm.com/research/jikes/license/license3.htm.

I hope the new license will terminate the concerns of those worried about the "termination" clause used in the previouse Jikes licenses.
