Chordii 4.3 included in Fedora

Chordii 4.3 has been approved for inclusion in Fedora, one of the leading Linux distributions. It will be part of Fedora 13 and later, and is already available as an update to Fedora 11 and 12.

Chordii 4.3 released

December 30, 2009
This release is functionally equivalent to 4.2, with all sources rebased from the original 3.6.2 to the new, GPL, 3.6.4 sources.

This means that this version of Chordii is truly GPL and can be included in official software distributions.

Chord 3.6.4: GPL release

December 10, 2009

The last known distribution of the original CHORD program is 3.6.2 and dates from july 1995. It includes a statement that CHORD is licensed following the conditions of the general GNU license, but with some additional restrictions. These restictions formed an obstacle for Chordii to be included in official software distributions.

In december 2009 I finally succeeded to track down the original authors and they agreed to the creation of a new, GPL-only release. This release is called 3.6.4 to avoid confusion with an already existing unofficial 3.6.3 version.

Following the GPL release of Chord, Chordii has been rebased on the 3.6.4 version, making it officially and legally GPL. A true GPL version of Chordii will be released soon.
