Good News on the Evolution Front

Novell has just recently (end of last week) announced that Evolution will no longer require copyright assignment. This is awesome news that I've been hoping would happen for a quite a while now.

Evolution's license is also changing to be dual-licensed under the LGPLv2 and LGPLv3.

Thanks to Michael Meeks and Srini for making this happen!

Do you perhaps have more specifics (not require assignment? Does this mean that the license changed? What is the new license? Is there a link to the press release?)

Do you have a source ?
The only thing I can find is on their mailinglist, but from what I read there it seems they don't know yet what license they will take.

I've just updated my post to answer both questions.
