1) The next release of Self will be free and will include source code
and the right to redistribute it (Stanford willing).
2) We plan to keep on doing new releases from Sun.
Sun really does understand that this thing needs to be widely available.
3) We hope to either help others port, or do a port ourselves.
Things are pretty hazy here.
Hope this helps
