AT&T UNIX SOFTWARE OPERATION OFFERS “SIGNIFICANT” LICENSING CHANGES

By CBR Staff Writer

AT&T’s Unix Software Operation has changed its early access programme and simplified the administration of Unix System V licenses in response to talks wih Unix International, it was announced at Uniforum. Early access to Unix System V Release 4 begins this month for members with source code licences, who are receiving early System V Release 4 tapes for internal use. These companies will also receive licensing terms and conditions within two months. AT&T has also agreed to develop a standard interface definition for Release 4.0 in conjunction with Unix International’s licensing and conformance workgroup with terms that will allow companies to license certain Unix V technologies without a conformance requirement. The final change, in administration, means a reduction in paperwork for licensees changing software between CPUs and transferring source code to othe licensees, which can now be reported quarterly rather than immediately a change is made.
