      Description

      the current 0.6 Scenegraph source code is under the GPL. No LGPL, no classpath
      exception.

      Hence, it is impossible to include it in any app, unless that one is released
      under GPL as well.

      Please change license to something more open.

        This means that probably the entire JavaFX source code is in violation of the
        GPL right now, as it itself is not released under the GPL license.
