|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 the GNU LGPL Version 2 which, in simple words, requires that the source code be included or be made immediately available at no cost and without formalities.|
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.
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 operating system 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.
