The framework itself is licensed under the LGPL 2.1. The glass-extension uses a modified variant of the LGPL.

The project was migrated to Github, you can pull the source from there. This site will continue to exist, but the old SVN repository is no longer synchronized with Github.

You might also have a look at the online documentation.

If you have any question or remark, visit our support forum.
