Squeak VM now in Debian distro

17 March, 2008


José L. Redrejo Rodríguez has announced that the Squeak VM is now officially included in the Debian distribution. This reflects the acceptance of the Debian administrators of the completion of the migration of the VM code from the old Apple licence to the MIT licence, (meaning that this page now needs updating). The package should be appearing in the mirrors in short order, see the changelog notice for more details.

There’s still work to do in removing or re-licensing the remaining legacy code in the images, but this is an important step forward in the recognition of Squeak as Free software.
