Community Edition

Community Editions are distributed under the GPL open source license which does not generally permit incorporating such licensed software into non-open source programs.

The GPL license requires that all software linked with a GPL licensed component, be itself licensed via the GPL. If you use Community Edition software, you must also license all your software that modifies, links with, or is combined with the software via the GPL. This means you must offer your source code to the general public and anyone who requests it. If choose the Community Edition, according to the GPL license, Embedthis herein requests a copy of your source code that is used in combination with our software. Please provide a copy of your source code by contacting licensing@embedthis.com.

Please consult the GPL license for license details. Contact Embedthis at licensing@embedthis.com if you have any licensing questions.
