GPLv3 projects top 2,000

1,000 projects every 4-5 months

The number of open-source projects that use the GNU General Public Licence Version 3 has grown to more than 2,000, according to Palamida, which sells software and services for tracking open-source code within a customer's code base.

"Our database now contains over 2,000 projects that are using the GPL v3", states a recent posting on Palamida's blog. "At this rate the GPL v3 is being adopted by 1,000 projects every 4-5 months, and if the trend continues, the licence will be used by 5,000 projects by the end of the year" the blog states.

The Free Software Foundation approved the GPL v3 in June 2007.
