Over 5,500 Projects Slated to Adopt GPL 3

Filed under
OSS

The official final release of the GPL is still a day away, but it's possible that over 5,500 projects could be migrating to it in very quickly.

Software vendor Palamida, which develops an application that is used to identify licenses and potential licensing issues, estimates that at least 5,509 projects have indicated an intention to move to GPL version 3.

The GPLv3 figures are part of a new public online effort at Gpl3.palamida.com from Palamida to track adoption of the new license.

"FSF (Free Software Foundation) will always be the site for information about GPLv3," Palamida CEO Mark Tolliver told internetnews.com. "But as we looked at it [GPLv3] we thought there would be a lot of interest in which projects have or have not decided to use GPLv3 and since it's our business to understand that we said this is an opportunity for us to give back."

The deepdream project is now available on GitHub. The project relies on the open-source Caffe deep learning framework. Deep learning involves training artificial neural networks on a large pile of data — for example, pictures of geese — and then throwing them a new piece of data, like a picture of an ostrich, to receive an educated guess about it.
