/by apr/ The Free Software Foundation has released the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL v3.0), a license we've been waiting for a long time that will allow us to open source more code such as the jCard (our Card Management System) and jPTS (an ISO-8583/2003 based jPOS Transaction Switch) projects. We plan to upgrade all our licenses to AGPL v3.0. What does this mean to you?

  • If you use jPOS as part of an open source project, you can check this Compatibility Matrix.
  • If you are an existing sponsor or contributor, nothing changes, you'll be entitled to get a waiver
  • If you use jPOS commercially and you are neither a contributor nor a sponsor, you should raise the issue to your managers and have them contact us
