Win2D 0.0.23 – now using the MIT license


Win2D version 0.0.23 is now available on NuGet and GitHub.

This release switches Win2D from Apache 2.0 to the MIT license.

It also fills some documentation holes, and tidies up some example code.  Minor changes only as we stabilize ready for a v1 release (we spent half of last sprint writing our own apps to validate Win2D end-to-end).

Note that this release is not compatible with Visual Studio 2015 RTM, because that does not include support for Windows 10 app development.  To develop UWP apps with Win2D 0.0.23, you must continue to use the earlier VS 2015 RC build.  For more information, see Release Dates and Compatibility: Visual Studio 2015 and the Windows 10 SDK.

We plan to release Win2D version 1.0.0, which will include full support for VS 2015 RTM and UWP, shortly after the Windows 10 SDK and Visual Studio UWP development tools on July 29  (same day if all goes well).

    That's the right way!

    That's great.

    How come you guys copyrighted the source code instead of releasing it to the public domain or UNLICENSEing it?

  4. asdf – almost all open source projects choose to use an explicit license so that everyone involved can be clear about what their rights and responsibilities are.
