    Phoronix: GNOME Gets A Log Viewer For Systemd's Journal

    There's a new GNOME application that experienced its first release this morning: GNOME Logs. While there's a lot of work left on the project, GNOME Logs is to serve as a centralized log viewer for the systemd journal on the GNOME desktop...

    can't find it
    I don't think it is mature enough to be in distro repos yet but I am sure it will get in soon. Meanwhile

    * They were and are discussing the addition of Windows/Mac/... to the Agreement, but there are (possible) legal issues with the proprietary nature of those platforms
    * The other answers state that it is about "X11 or its successor", and as you read Phoronix most people agree that Wayland is sort of a successor of X11 - that's probably the part "easy to add".
    Isn't it funny that he not only was incapable of extracting these points from the quote, but how he conveniently "forgot" to answer your question about Webkit-GTK? Honton/funkSTAR has brought himself in a position where anything he says that is not a blatant lie proves himself to be wrong or at least a serious hypocrite.

    What?! I confirmed that the agreement serves as a powerful safeguard. If they don't keep up their end of the bargain, then they lose their ability to commercially license pretty much all of Qt, and the few remaining bits are open-source.

    And I notice you completely and totally ignored my answer to your second question.

    That is right. If Qt doesn't make a regular release, the Linux and Android versions become BSD, while the remainder stays LGPL. Pretty much everything becomes BSD with the exception of a few platform-specific bits which have to remain LGPL. How horrible.

    Everyone can release addons for Qt, not just Digia. Everyone can release addons for GTK+, also.

    Only Free Qt for a limited number of Linux platforms is covered. Nothing else, and Wayland is excluded for now.
    So? The bulk of Qt is covered, and the point of the agreement isn't to free all of Qt from the GPL in case Digia misbehaves. The point is to discourage Digia from offering closed "value-added" Qt versions, since if Qt gets a permissive license due to Digia's (in)actions, everyone else has the opportunity to make closed versions of Qt as well (even if they may have to rewrite a little bit of platform-specific code).

    Let me help you:

    https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-c...q3/000146.html
    I will quote and add some extra outlining to preserve you from reading the wrong text...
    As a board member of the KDE Free Qt Foundation, I will give some quick
    answers here while I consider how to communicate these facts to the wider
    public. Please feel free to quote my answer, or to link to this email in a
    mailing list archive.

    1. The KDE Free Qt Foundation aims to protect all developers using the Free
    Software called Qt. The contracts are therefore not limited to KDE. As one of
    the largest volunteer-driven Free Software communities, KDE is well placed to
    be the stewards of the interests of Free Software developers in general.

    2. The LGPL licence of all current Qt releases allows use in both proprietary
    and Free Software applications and contains to platform-specific restrictions.
    This licence grant cannot be retroactively taken away by Digia. In addition,
    the KDE Free Qt Foundation can also relicense Qt under a different open source
    licence (such as BSD) for general, even more permissive use. The Foundation
    agreed not do so as long as Digia continues to release Qt as LGPL and with
    support for at least desktop Linux and Android (?Qt Free Edition?).

    3. The contract with Nokia and Digia covers desktop Linux (X11, Wayland can be
    easily added in the future
    ). Digia has signed a second agreement which also
    includes Android
    (Necessitas) and is identical to the first agreement in all
    other aspects. Both agreements prohibit Digia from releasing a sub-standard
    version of Qt as ?Qt Free Edition?. In other words: The desktop Linux version
    cannot be incomplete compared to the Windows and Mac versions, and the Android
    version cannot be incomplete compared to the other mobile platforms.

    4. The differences between the various platforms have massively decreased
    during the last years. The same codebase is used for the various platforms,
    with minimal platform-specific code paths. This makes it more easy for third
    parties to provide support for platforms not officially included in Digia?s LGPL
    releases
    . We have opened discussions on whether to include the Windows and
    MacOS platforms (first with Nokia, then with Digia), but we have not reached
    any decisions yet given the legals pitfalls caused by the proprietary nature
    of these platforms. For example, we do not know whether Microsoft or Apple
    will prohibit or punish the development of LGPL-licensed libraries
    for their
    platforms (cf. AppStore rules).
    Please feel free to contact me if you have
    thoughts on this topic.

    The legal framework of the KDE Free Qt Foundation is now more than 15 years
    old (see http://kde.org/community/whatiskde/k...foundation.php).
    During this time, Trolltech was bought by Nokia, and Nokia sold Qt to Digia.
    We had anticipated such contingencies and included very strong legal language
    in the agreement and managed to ensure the continued validity of the
    protection in all such cases. In addition to protecting Free Software users of
    Qt, we have also accompanied various positive evolutions (relicensing to LGPL,
    inclusion of the Android platform, and especially the open governance of the
    Qt Project).


    I invite developers using (or potential using) Qt to contact me with comments,
    doubts, questions or constructive feedback on our work.
    Now that this was finally cleared you can tell us why you support a DE, that uses (and actively gives back to) an evil company: why is it OK to use and support WebKit-GTK?

    And you should really read the link mgraesslin posted in your own infamous "KDE kills Gnome" thread (or was it the other way arround?). A long mailing list thread about the very same topic. And they see it quite relaxed

    BTW.: You still did not tell me why in your little scary world) it is OK to hard depend on Apple WebKit but not on Qt...
