PopUpWindow updates: MIT license and Unload callbacks

Posted in Jquery, Opensource, PopWindow by rip747 on February 14, 2010

It’s been quite sometime since I got to work on PopUpWindow now that CFWheels has taken over my life.

I find it amazing though that I still get emails, requests and contributions from this simple plugin. The biggest request I get is from people wanting to use PopUpWindow in their commercial applications and needing to know what the license is. I’ve always said that all the software I write is open source and you’re free to do with it what you want, however I understand that this doesn’t fly in the corporate world. After looking over and talking about licenses with others who write open source software, I’ve decided to follow others and put PopUpWindow under the MIT license. I think this is the least restrictive license out there and finally clears the air.

PopUpWindow also got an update thanks to Jason Holden who added Unload callbacks. This is what I love about open source, the software that I start gets further redefined by complete strangers who only want to see it improve. It’s totally awesome. Thank you Jason.
