TN-E/TN-A violate GPL, xmbctrl source code release

Post by HacKmaN » Wed Jun 22, 2011 5:16 pm

Hey community,

first of all, for everyone that don't know it: 6.20 TN-E and 6.39 TN-A violates the GPL license of Bubbletune's (awesome) Game Cathegories plugin, we're sorry for this.
Problem is, TN doesn't want to release any parts of the code, except the source of xmbctrl (were all the GPL'd code is). The wololo.net team and me got a compromise for that problem, I think everyone will be happy with this (hopefully): Releasing the xmbctrl-source code of both TN-HEN versions, that use GPL'd code (6.20 TN-E and 6.39 TN-A).

Here you can download both versions. Both archives include the HEN-binary and the source code of xmbctrl:

6.20 TN-E
6.39 TN-A

If you uploaded one binary-only versions of these, please change it to this version, every TN-E/TN-A download, that doesn't include the xmbctrl source code, is illegal, because of violating GPL. So please change the links in forums/blogs/whatever.

By the way, TN doesn't want to post this personally, that's why I'm doing it.

The Xtended versions are ardi's work, I think he can just include the xmbctrl-source in his releases ;)

because those topics contained downloads which did not include the source code, thereby causing it to violate the gpl, which made it an illegal software.

does it means the TN Settings on XMB can now be ported for ME and PRO B ?
or the source code is the one of bubbletune plugin?

"sqz_bx" (writer of the "6.20 TN-E Released" thread) hasn't been online for ten days now, I don't think, that he'll change the topic soon... could a moderator or administrator do that, please?

And I'm a bit supprised that The Z's thread has been closed, he changed the version in his threads short time after I created this thread, the legal versions are on his server...
