The GNU Lesser General Public License is the new license for Minetest.

Rationale

The reason for this shift is that the developers of the game want to make the engine available for easy re-use by other projects. While Minetest is a great engine, and could be used to make a lot of interesting content available through the Lua API, the old GPL license has a chilling effect on modders and people interested in adding content to the game. In order to avoid that chilling effect, and encourage people to use the engine regardless of their licensing choices, the core contributors decided that LGPL was an acceptable change.
