digitalmars.D.announce - Derelict has a new license

For the two years Derelict has been in existence, each package was 
essentially released under the same license as the C library it provides 
bindings to. Everything was rather hodgepodge and not at all coherent.

Now, after having my confusion cleared up on a specific issue involving 
  SDL, the LGPL and DerelictSDL, I am now certain that the entire 
project can be released under a single license. All Derelict packages 
are now released under a BSD-style license, so D programmers can use 
Derelict and the bound libraries without any hassles or confusion.
