GPL announcement

At GUADEC, RealNetworks announced that they will be releasing the Helix Player under tri-license terms which will include the GPL in the next 30 days, in cooperation with Red Hat and Novell, who pushed hard to make this happen. In very closely related news, Novell and Red Hat are both standardizing on the Helix Player as the standard media player on their commercial distrubutions. Details on all of this are available in the press releases (Real and Novell, Real and Red Hat), as well as this piece in the New York Times. Source code and prebuilt binaries can be downloaded from the Helix Community
