Microsoft releases F# under Apache licence
Microsoft has released the sources of the F# programming language as open source code under the Apache 2.0 licence. The compiler and libraries are now available as "code drops" within the F# PowerPack collection on the CodePlex web site, Microsoft's hosting platform for open source projects. Both components were previously already available to download free of charge under Microsoft's Research Shared Source License Agreement, which permits developers to use the code in non-commercial projects. The Apache licence takes things a step further and allows the unrestricted use of the F# libraries and compiler.
