xTuple Moves PostBooks to OSI-Approved CPAL

Lora Bentley

After the Open Source Initiative approved the Common Public Attribution License, enterprise resource planning software provider xTuple (formerly known as OpenMFG) became the second to adopt it. Computer Business Review reports that the company will release its PostBooks accounting and ERP solution under the new license.


Originally, PostBooks was set to be released under the company's own license, the xTuple Public License. The XPL, like many others, the CBR piece says, "was based on the OSI-approved Mozilla Public License, with extensions that had not been approved."


According to Socialtext, which wrote the CPL, the intent of the license is to replace the plethora of company-specific Mozilla + Attribution licenses with one whose terms the OSI finds acceptable.
