Hi,

I am happy to see you updated pChart component yourself, and it's better that original pChart that is very old.

Maybe do you want to give them that update ?

I think it will help many people :)

Hello,

I think the best is to do a bug report :) if there are problem to keep this pChart version.

Or:
You can add this as a feature request at our feature tracker . Please describe your idea as detailed as possible and try to outline a suitable solution/implementation aswell. ( dixit Mazi ;) )

I am not sure you understand my request...

In fact, your pChart version is OK, and really more recent than official pChart version.

What I suggest is to send to official pChart website your contribution :)

From what I have read a few days ago pChart is no longer maintained (prove me wrong). That's a pitty because it's a great library.
There is also a fork of the pchart project and another version for mediawiki.
You can get "our" pchart version from our SVN.

You're right, pChart 1.x trunk isn't maintained anymore.

The v2 version will be available in a few days/weeks to the early adopters community ( http://www.pchart.net, http://wiki.pchart.net/ )

What a pity, a non really GPL licence.

LimeSurvey are for commercial use, then we can't use pChart 2 and stay at pChart 1.0.

:S

hmm, I am not an expert on software licenses, but I understand this paragraph slightly different:
If you want to integrate it in your commercial products, you'll have to get a commercial license. There are some exceptions to this rule for Public Research and Education labs. Non-profit web sites that don't want to publish their source code under GPL may also apply.

Limesurvey might be used for commercial purposes, but it is not a commercial product, as it is not sold. I think this has no impact on Limesurvey, as it is distributed free of charge with source code. How you use the product should be not the problem.

However, I can be totally wrong in my interpretation here, as I am no expert.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:
Manual (EN) | Question Types | Question Attributes | Workarounds

If you found this answer helpful and it saved you some time please consider a donation to the project to keep Limesurvey going!

The first paragraph on that page is the important one:
The pChart library is released under two different licenses. If your application is not a commercial one (eg: you make no money by redistributing it) then the GNU GPLv3 license (General Public License) applies. This license allows you to freely integrate this library in your applications, modify the code and redistribute it in bundled packages as long as your application is also distributed with the GPL license.

Once it is under the GPL it can be used without restrictions.
Let's hope they keep it that way for release.

Oh, yes , you're right !

This just real GPL licence , no mandatory redistributing fee. Allways same problem: what for selling a GPL promotion CD with lot of GPL program inside.

Well, as far as I read it if you put pChart 2 as a separate lib on a CD and sell it, that would not be permitted.
But if LimeSurvey is using pChart 2 (and therefore it is included in the LS package) then it would be permitted.

Of course there is a loophole if someone says: My work is based on LimeSurvey where I stripped away everything except for pChart ;) - just not very credible ;).
