by Brett Smith published Apr 06, 2010 last modified Apr 30, 2010 11:20 AM — filed under:
Recently we've seen some questions about whether Eclipse plug-ins can be released under the GPL. Answered briefly, this is possible if you can provide an additional permission with the license to allow combining your plug-in with the necessary EPL-covered libraries.
