Not according to the devs. There was quite a big base rewrite to be able to use all the extra features etc, but that may be to stir up interest.

Just wanted to see how different versions relate/differ etc. Git repository makes it convenient. Also it might be convenient for people who want to make their own improvements/modifications.
3.0 source isn't even available yet.

3.0 changes seem to be mostly gui-related anyway.

This is straw man. I didn't know that someone wrote about a code theft. :?

I took the trouble, unlike you, to find similar or identical function calls, similar directory structure used in time of compiling in dynamically linked shared object library of Waze GPL and closed-source clients and expressed a doubt. That's all. If you have better information based on your own research, just share them.

First, my apologies for posting that in-thread. I intended to send you a PM. I will be more careful in the future.

Second, I think you answered my question. You could always move on to something more productive.

Look who's in there.
Oh that's right. You can *fork your own code*. The GPL also does NOT prevent, preclude, prohibit, exclude, deny or otherwise disallow you from purchasing copyright from the original authors and closing the source.

It does however prevent you from pulling access to the code as it existed at the time the license was changed. Since we don't know when Ehud/Waze decided to relicense *his own code*, we have no idea if that part is in compliance or not for 2.4.x clients, but we do know it does not apply to 3.x clients.
