It seems that the University of California San Diego which violated 
the GPL has decided to finally stop using my JAXML software in newer 
releases of their ENV software. The 0.9.4 you can download from 
their website, published on August 29th, doesn't use my GPLed library 
anymore, so they still use their own non-free license. 

Older versions doesn't seem to be available for download anymore.

I'm still not officially informed of this, I've just checked their 

However their website doesn't have a single word nor apologize about 
their passed illegal behaviour, and coming from a University I find
this **VERY** impolite (I also work in an University).

They violated the GPL and my rights for at least nine consecutive 
months, so I expected at least a word from them on this subject. 
They only tell users of previous versions "please replace it with 
the current version". 

Don't you find this "disturbing" ?

Anyway thanks to ALL who helped to solve this case in a pacific way ! 

The GPL will not go to court this time :-(

Thanks again to all.
