If any Daphne Developers are reading this, I just wanted to say that MAME may be changing its license to GNU GPL/LGPL.


If this becomes the case, you could reuse MAMEs code in Daphne, and possibly use its CPU cores for 8088 to allow for DL2, and the 68000 Core for ALG.

not to mention Mach 3.

On the flipside, Daphne will more than likely be assimilated.

I'm more interested in *why* Mame is considering switching licenses...

Don't forget Us vs Them :)

I get the impression that some of the MAME devs want to change licenses because they aren't satisfied with their current one. Moreover, they are looking to make their source code more available for other projects to use. In short, their intentions seem quite noble to me. I hope they choose to do it.

Interestingly, MAMEDev have just rejected the use of MPEG-2 as a video format due to licensing implications.

Therefore assimilation looks to be going ahead in reverse i.e. DAPHNE assmimilating MAME cores, and picking up all the MAME LD testdrivers.
