Rolan writes "It seems that MySQL has been released under the GPL. Though I can't find any stories on it, you can see the 'news' here." We're posting this because lots of people have sent it in, but don't get too excited about it, okay?

A good start, and worthy of applause, but not that big a deal in the overall scheme of things.
