Differences between version #4294 and #6344

7,9c7,11
<   * the //Haxe compiler// is released under the **GPL** license. This is made to ensure that Haxe will remain open-source and that people distributing modified Haxe versions will have to distribute the source code changes as well. the Haxe compiler is entirely written by Haxe author Nicolas Cannasse. The license of the compiler does NOT affect the license of your source code, so you don't have to open-source your code when using Haxe.
<   * the //Haxe libraries// are released under a two-clause **BSD** license. It means that you can use these libraries at your own will and risks. A more liberal license than the GPL was needed since we want you to be able to use Haxe libraries while writing closed-source code.
<   * the //Neko runtime// used by Haxe on the server-side is **LGPL**. It means that you can use it from a closed-source program but if you modify it you'll have to open source your changes. 
---
>   * The //Haxe compiler// is released under the **GNU General Public License version 2**. This is made to ensure that Haxe will remain open source. The license requires the users distributing modified versions of the Haxe compiler to also distribute the source code, licensed under the same license. Therefor distributing proprietary/not-open source forks of the Haxe compiler is not allowed.
> The Haxe compiler is entirely written by Haxe author Nicolas Cannasse.
> The license of the compiler does not affect the license of your source code. If you use Haxe and the Haxe compiler it is not reqiured that you release your work under an open source license.
>   * The //Haxe libraries// are released under a "two-clause" **BSD license**. This license grants you the right to use the libraries providing only that you include a copyright notice in the end-product. A more liberal license than the GNU General Public License was chosen here, allowing you to use the libraries in proprietary/not-open source software.
>   * The //Neko runtime// used by Haxe on the server-side is licensed under the **GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1**. This license, like the GNU General Public License, requires the users distributing modified versions of the Neko runtime to also distribute the source code, licensed under the same license. However, in some cases the license allows a used to use an unmodified version of the licensed code in proprietary/not-open source software.
