Some items in Amiga Forever, in addition to being published under license or
with permission of the respective authors, were originally distributed under
a license such as the GNU GPL Version 2 or
GNU LGPL Version 2 which, in simple
words, requires that the source code be included or be made immediately available at no cost and
Included Source Code
Higher-capacity versions of Amiga Forever, such as certain DVD-based
editions, include all original
archives with source code, as provided by the authors.
Online Source Code
In order to
reduce the size of individual downloads, the Value Edition of Amiga
Forever, as well as certain other downloadable versions and updates, do not always include the
full source code in the same downloadable file. Instead, the distribution files are split into different archives. Where this is the case, both
the download page and the documentation include a link to this page, which
lists the relevant downloadable source code archives.
The above list includes the source code of all items ever released on
different versions of Amiga Forever and its various updates, unless the relevant
source code was either included with the distribution itself (e.g. on DVD), was not
released under a source code license (e.g. code which is not related to or
derivative work of code released under a GPL license), or was chosen to be made
available otherwise from the original publisher.
The AROS Research Operating System is licensed under the
APL, and has source
code available on the AROS web site.
When used in combination with C64 Forever or otherwise, Amiga Forever may
include CBM 8-bit emulation and related components, for which source code is
available on the C64
Forever Source Code page.
Please also refer to the links in the navigation bar for additional downloads,
which may include more recent versions of the software and source code.
Omissions and Corrections
Amiga Forever is a complex project involving the intellectual property of
hundreds of licensors and contributors. Such a project, beginning with the
idea to release a legal package inclusive of an Amiga emulation and
system (also containing operating system files not fully owned by the former Amiga
companies) in the first place, would not be
possible without taking intellectual property rights very seriously. What we
strived to do with all legal aspects involving Amiga Forever certainly also
includes and applies to GPL, LGPL and similar licenses. Please notify
us immediately if you find errors or omissions on this page.
