Jack doesn't generally try to predict when releases will be ready until they're pretty close. Right now, it's not "pretty close" -- at least several weeks I would guess at a minimum, and even then it probably will be one or two betas first.

Currently yui-ext is licensed the same way as Yahoo! UI, which is BSD. You can use it on your home page no problem. Here's a link to Yahoo's license (I believe the same terms apply to yui-ext):

I've asked this in another thread recently but received no response...where is it actually written that the yui-ext widgets are released under the BSD license, other than a couple forum postings? Supposedly there is a link of the home page (www.yui-ext.com), but I've found none.

I also have not found the license in the downloaded source. What I am looking for is some 'official' link or file that says "yui-ext is released under the BSD license.'


Anyone?

How about the file, conviently name license.txt in the zip file? It contains the following:

Well, I expected to find some sort of license file ...however, my zip does not have any such file! Perhaps this was a fluke in the version I downloaded? Seems odd. I have yui-ext.0.33-rc2.zip downloaded a couple weeks ago.


Edit: Just downloaded 0.33-rc3, and sure enough, there is a license.txt in the zip.

That's definitely outdated - the official .33 release has been available since at least 12/14.

Speaking of licensing, does anyone know the impact of serving a compressed (comments stripped, etc) file to users?

For instance, say I include Jack's awesome DOMQuery code in my library. I then post a project to Google Code with the full source (including copyright block at the top). The code is available, but what gets distributed to the client (the compressed code) doesn't have any mention of Jack's copyright.

Taking it a step further what if I don't post the code to Google Code? Would I have to serve the .js file with the license/copyright block at the top and compressed code below it?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

If you use jsmin to compress your code, it can to this automatically. It strips all the comments then adds a comment block at the top based on an additional parm you pass to jsmin. If you're using something else to compress that doesn't have this feature, then yes you'd have to manually add it back after you compress.
