    At first glance, this sounds promising. I just hope it means what I think it does.

    I just want to confirm that this is indeed a lite base library that is being released under MIT, not Ext JS. The license for Ext JS will not be changing and we have no plans to change its license in the future.

    Jack - I am going to ask the obvious questions - which I am sure most of the users are thinking about

    1. What's the rationale between releasing a MIT licensed library. You went down that path with yui-ext and said that people were "stealing" your working and not giving you due credit which is how you justified the change in the license.

    2. Why should users trust that you will not gradually change the base library to lgpl and then to gpl after enough users start using it.

    Thanks,

    Kraus

    1. Contrary to popular belief, we do enjoy giving back to the JS open source community. Core parts of yui-ext (e.g. DomQuery and DomHelper code) are still used in other libraries today. Most core JS libraries are under very permissive licenses, and we think ours should be as well.

    2. I have already explained why Ext's license was changed to GPL several times. I am sure you have read it. There would be no reason why a base library would need the same license change since it would start with an MIT license, not an "almost open source" license. If you are instead trying to insinuate a "bait and switch", I am not going to legitimize such a question by giving a response.

    Jack,

    In #1 above, you mention both DomQuery and DomHelper. Looking at the 2.2 files, DomQuery includes the MIT license statement, but DomHelper does not. Will the new lite library contain an MIT version of DomHelper functionality or will DomHelper itself be changed to state MIT or does it maintain the normal license?

    Tim, the new core lib itself will entirely be MIT. DomHelper was originally created back in the yui-ext days, so people used the BSD licensed version.

    @superman - these type of questions have been discussed in some detail in the multiple license threads here and also in the license faq. If your specific question is not answered by any of them, please send your question to licensing@extjs.com
