CGAL 4.0 LGPL/GPL FYI

donbright
Just thought that the folks in OpenSCAD land might be interested to
see that CGAL 4.0 beta has just come out (
http://www.cgal.org/releases.html#release4.0 ) and the CGAL folks are
saying the new version (scheduled for March 2912) will be relicensed
as LGPL and GPL 3, not the old QPL license. I'm guessing chrysn will
have more news regarding debian and whether/how this might solve the
licensing issue with OGL_helper.h. Therefore I'm abandoning my rewrite
of OGL_helper.h
