Changing licensing to MIT

As some of you may have noticed: we have changed the licensing terms of some of our repositories.

Until yesterday, there were two licenses across our repos: Apache 2.0 and MIT. The oldest ones were under Apache 2.0 and newest ones under MIT.

Being both the “permissive ones” and, in practice, without much difference between them we thought on making it simpler for everyone (both hobbyists/personal users and companies/commercial users) and unify them.

We have decided to go with the MIT one because of its simplicity and openness, which is in the spirit of what has been done since the .NET nanoFramework project started.

No big deal, most will say, but we hope that this is another step on consolidating the project’s organization and openness.

Have fun!
