XFree86.org president David Dawes announced a draft of a new version of the XFree86 license on the XFree86.org mailing list yesterday. The new license is scheduled to become effective with the 4.4.0 release. According to Dawes, the change is being made in order to "ensure that XFree86 and its contributors are receiving due credit for their work." A draft of the new license along with the original can be found here.
