I'm pleased to announce that I've just closed bug #3881, which means
that from now on Canola and all its components are licensed under the
GNU General Public License version 3.

The source code of the former closed-source packages, Atabake,
Download Manager, Terra and Canola, has been uploaded to our gitorious
server a few hours ago.

The canola-devel mailing list for developers is already set up and
working on garage. Everyone is very welcome to join us in the
development of the project. For documentation, such as installation
instructions, build dependency, and so on, I'm setting up a wiki that
should go online by the end of this week under the openbossa.org

With all this, Canola officially leaves the beta status. The packages
of for the final 2.0.0 version will be uploaded soon, together with
brand new Maemo-EFL.

Last, I'd like to thank everyone for supporting the project even
before the very first release and especially for providing feedback on
the various releases we had since December 2007. If today we were able
to release Canola as Free Software, consider yourself responsible for
it as well.

Best Regards, Etrunko.
