Hi all--

	Thanks to long-running efforts by folks at Viewpoints Research 
Institute, Apple Computer and elsewhere, Apple has given Viewpoints 
permission to make a release of the original public Squeak system using 
the Apple Public Source License[1].

	Squeak 1.1, with an APSL2 license, is available here:

	The Squeak Foundation board would like to thank the above groups for 
making this happen, and everyone else for being so patient!

	And now we live in interesting times. This only applies to the original 
release of Squeak (version 1.1 of 23 September 1996); we now have a 
choice between APSL2 and the original Squeak License[2] for that 
release. We need to decide what to do about subsequent code, and code 
written by third parties. We might choose to rewrite some things so as 
to create a better licensing situation. We probably want to have a 
policy whereby contributors agree to grant a particular license to their 
work explicitly before we can accept it.

	How shall we proceed with future releases of Squeak? Let's discuss it.

	thanks again,
	your Squeak Foundation board
