So it's no longer Free Software? It's become proprietary. For shame.
It seems odd that Our Editor missed this sad state of affairs.

It's somewhere in between open source and proprietrary, if I remember my definitions correctly. All of the source is available and can be modified and distributed (as patches). What you cannot do is sell it for more than the cost of distribution.
