I'm not sure where else to put it but I just noticed this.

The non-profit license used to state:
This special license is granted on a non-profit base, which means that it must not be used in any commercial purposes (you must not earn money from using it). Selling a few boards limited to your hobby is allowed.

Now the bolded part is gone. I used to recommend this program a lot to hobbyists because they could sell a couple boards to their friends and not feel guilty about violating the terms (many actually really liked the fact that DipTrace seemed very fair about things). I'm curious, is that an unintentional omission during an update or have the terms actually changed?

We removed the sentence from the term because its duality. Our position is simple - users can't make money with non-profit version. But if users sell PCBs for their friends at cost they don't make money and therefore they don't violate the license agreement.
