Does anyone know of a fork of iText? [closed]

There seems to be some sense that wanting to use or continue with the LGPL version is a personal affront to Bruno.

How about the fact that folks adopted the library because it was LGPL in the first place? Now a change in the package names and licenses is supposed to be ok and we should just shut up and live with it. That’s called bait and switch.

Bruno can do what he wishes and it’s understandable that the man wants some money for his efforts. If that’s the best way to monetize his work then he should do so. However, that doesn’t make those who want to use the original LGPL version pariah and wanting to move forward with a fork of that licensed codebase isn’t being nasty.
