First of all, apologies for putting this in the coffee corner, I really didn't know where else to post it.

I am getting closer and closer to the actual release of my first real piece of software developed using Ultimate++ and theIDE. The software is a commercial product - or will intended to be anyway Smile

I now have some questions about acknowledgement and licensing. Basically... what are the requirements? Very Happy

I am not a license expert at all but my first impression of the Authors & License page is that it pertains to forks of this project itself and I don't have to credit Ultimate++ in the software I make with it, is that correct?

I will want to credit Ultimate++ anyway, that is not the point, but when I HAVE to I would like to know how exactly to be in the clear Smile

On an unrelated note: when we go public and start promoting the software I would also like to donate back to the Ultimate++ project in some way. I don't have (and don't want to have) Paypal or a credit card, would it be possible to make an international bank transfer to the project instead? To whom should I address this question in person?

Seriously, as long as you are not using any GPL licensed packaged (which is only nasm, so unlikely), there are none.

Practically, as far as I am concerned, there are none Smile

Well, if you want to be nice, it would be good to put something like "Using Ultimate++" into About box. You also should have add credits for authors of 3rd party code, like plugin/png.

When the time comes, send me PM. Still, consider Paypal, it is quite useful thing to have...

NASM is under the Simplified BSD License.

Thank you for the reply mirek. I think I have now covered all my bases on the credits part in the About box. There is a link to Ultimate++ and I found the "Authors & License part about the plugins I have used.

I use scatter in my program so have thanked Andrei Catalin too, of course. Not sure if this is needed, but still Smile

I was under the impression that I got Report from Bazaar too, was this in Bazaar at some point or am I just confused again and has this always been a standard package?

Regarding the donation: someone told me that I can transfer money to my own Paypal account using my bank account so I do not need a credit card for it anymore. When I make my donation I will also post in the "Programs made with Ultimate++" forum to tell a little bit more about the program and what it does.

Thanks for now.
