Hey guys, just want to know if we can still use FlexSlider in our themes. I just read this and I’m not sure if I understand :

“FlexSlider is no longer licensed under the MIT license. FlexSlider now shares the common licensed used for all WooThemes themes, GPLv2. Please keep this in mind for before undertaking proprietary forking adventures.”

I tweeted the author but I just can’t wait to see what he’ll say so I’m asking you guys :)

Thanks Brandon!

I was talking about FlexSlider2 : https://github.com/woothemes/FlexSlider/tree/FlexSlider2

It’s probably the same licence though, am I right?

FlexSlider 2 is in beta, but from what I’ve heard it should be done very soon. I would go with version 1 until 2 is finalized.

Ahhh! Thanks for the clarification – yeah, I don’t think FS2 is out yet officially… who knows with WT running things, but I’d kinda assume that it’s going to be released under the same GPL2 since that’s what they run a lot of their addons under. Who knows though ;)

As a side note, I’ve personally been digging on this slider: http://caroufredsel.frebsite.nl/ ... tons of killer possibilities and responsive-friendly (my newer themes all use it). Lots more options from a programming standpoint than Flexslider … not sure about Flexslider 2.

Hope that helps out!
