DangerOnTheRanger writes "Torque3D, the game engine behind games such as Blockland and Tribes 2, has gone open-source. The engine itself — in addition to 4 game templates — are all included in a Git repository hosted on Github. Documentation is available in a separate repository. Quite the exciting time in the world of game development!"

+ - paste.pocoo.org shut down->

Submitted by

DangerOnTheRanger writes "Well-known paste site LodgeIt (aka paste.pocoo.org) has shut down. According to the website (the paste submission form has been removed), the pastebin was shut down because "it turns out, running a pastebin is a horrible idea if you don't do entry expiration or spam filtering" and that the site administrators "found that some people were using the pastebin to distribute highly illegal content."

Apparently, none of the pastes are viewable anymore — all paste URLs redirect to a page detailing why the site shut down."

Android - at least all the code you get from Google - is under the Apache 2.0 License. That makes Android a fully open-source project, since the Apache License is an OSI-approved license (and quite a permissive one at that). So people can't (or shouldn't) complain about Android not being open-source; they should complain instead about carriers making proprietary extensions. Quick note: CyanogenMod - an open-source build of Android - comes bundled with its own open-source marketplace application.
