M3U8 v0.8 Release Notes

Release Date: 2016-11-12 // about 5 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ›  There are a lot of bugfixes and optimizations.

    ๐Ÿš€ This is the last release under GNU GPL license. As decided by the maintainers of the project the code from the next release will be covered by BSD 3-clause license (#71). It will allow usage of m3u8 package in any kind of projects include the projects under proprietary licenses. It is no problem for GPL projects as conditions of GPL license allows include the code under BSD-licenses.

    ๐Ÿš€ So the next release v0.9 will be with the same code but include the new license. The code of the version 0.8 and below can be used under GNU GPL.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ There are a lot of contributions was made since the project started. As initial author of the project I very glad that this piece of the code was useful and attracted other people for participating. I am very grateful for all the participants for their contribution to the project! So if the conditions of BSD license totally inappropriate for a contributor and he don't want to see his name among authors of the code under non-GPL license then he can create the issue with a complain or just drop me a mail. Then I will remove the patches from this contributor and replace them with a new code under my authorship. I not sure how it is correct from the view of law but m3u8 is amateur project for me so I don't want spend many time for license questions. It is the code only matters.
