On Tue, 28 Sep 2010 Vafa Kha­lighi sub­mit­ted an up­date to the bidi pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Sup­port for bidi­rec­tional type­set­ting in plain TeX and LaTeX. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
1- fixed re­ported bugs 2- in­cluded dtx source and TDS 3- There is a slight change of li­cense: Copy­right © 2007–2010 It may be dis­tributed and/or mod­i­fied un­der the LaTeX Project Public Li­cense, ver­sion 1.3c or higher (your choice). The lat­est ver­sion of this li­cense is at: http://www.la­tex-project.org/lppl.txt This work is “au­thor-main­tained” (as per LPPL main­te­nance sta­tus) by Vafa Kha­lighi. In ad­di­tion to the terms of LPPL any dis­tributed ver­sion (un­changed or mod­i­fied) of bidi has to keep the state­ment about the moral obli­ga­tion for us­ing bidi. In case of ma­jor changes where this would not be ap­pro­pri­ate the au­thor of the changed ver­sion should con­tact the copy­right holder. Mo­ral obli­ga­tion for us­ing bidi: ____________________________________ Users of bidi who wish to in­clude or use bidi or a mod­i­fied ver­sion in a pro­pri­etary and com­mer­cially mar­ket prod­uct are asked un­der cer­tain con­di­tions (see be­low) for the pay­ment of a li­cense fee. The size of this fee is to be de­ter­mined, in each in­stance, by the com­mer­cial user, de­pend­ing on his/her judg­ment of the value of bidi for his/her prod­uct. The con­di­tions for this are as fol­lows: The pro­ducer of a pro­pri­etary and com­mer­cially mar­ket prod­uct that in­volves type­set­ting us­ing bidi is asked to de­ter­mine the value of a li­cense fee for us­ing bidi if - the prod­uct is a doc­u­ment and the pro­ducer has de­cided to in­clude bidi to type­set (parts of) the doc­u­ment or has di­rected the au­thor of the doc­u­ment to in­clude bidi (for ex­am­ple, by pro­vid­ing a class file to be used by the au­thor) - the prod­uct is a LaTeX class or pack­age that in­cludes bidi There is no moral obli­ga­tion in case - the prod­uct is a doc­u­ment but pro­ducer has not di­rected the au­thor to in­clude bidi (in that case the moral obli­ga­tion lies with the au­thor of the doc­u­ment) - the prod­uct does not in­volve type­set­ting, e.g., con­sists, for ex­am­ple, of dis­tribut­ing bidi and its doc­u­men­ta­tion. - the prod­uct is not pro­pri­etary, i.e., is made avail­able as free soft­ware it­self (which doesn't pro­hibit its com­mer­cial mar­ket­ing) - bidi is used for non-com­mer­cial pur­poses Deter­mi­nat­ing a li­cense fee might re­sult in a li­cense fee of zero (i.e., no pay­ment) in case a pro­ducer has de­ter­mined that the use of bidi has no en­hanc­ing ef­fect on the prod­uct. This is a plau­si­ble sce­nario, i.e., in the above two cases the pro­ducer is only asked to eval­u­ate the value of bidi for the prod­uct not for the pay­ment of a li­cense fee per se (which might or might not fol­low from this eval­u­a­tion). The li­cense fee, if any, can be payed to the au­thor of the pro­gram who can be con­tacted at vafakhlgh at gmail.com
