As scheduled, the first draft of the new GPL v3 license has been 
published by the Free Software Foundation.

See http://gplv3.fsf.org/ for the license itself, rationale 
information, and a forum in which to leave your comments on it.

I have read the entire license, and part of the rationale.  In my own 
reading, it looks good and I don't recognize any parts that would be 
problematic.  And I see parts that are improvements.  Its also quite 
easy to read, and I'm not a lawyer.

Barring some strange unresolved revelation, I plan to explicitly 
relicense my own work under this version 3, which was previously 
"version 2 or later" once it finalizes in the next 6-12 months.
