Asterisk Documentation 1.4 mysql.txt

-=NOTE: These pages are automatically updated once per
day from the Asterisk subversion repository when the repository changes revisions. Any
changes made to this page will be automatically overwritten with the
latest version from http://svn.digium.com/view/asterisk/branches/.

MYSQL LICENSING UPDATE
======================
We were recently contacted by MySQL and informed that the MySQL client 
libraries are now under GPL license and not LGPL license as before.  

Since Asterisk does allow exceptions to GPL, we are removing MySQL support 
from standard Asterisk.  We will, where appropriate, make it available via 
a separate package which will only be usable when Asterisk is used completely
within GPL (i.e. not in conjunction with G.729, OpenH.323, etc).  We 
apologize for the confusion.

You may find this in the new "asterisk-addons" package.
