How We Use Open Source

Mono

ConnectWise Control uses the Mono runtime for the Linux and OS X (read: not Windows) server installations. Mono is packaged in binary form within the ConnectWise Control application. We have forked Mono (simply for bug fixes), and the source is available here. ConnectWise Control uses the Mono C# compiler under the MIT X11 license. ConnectWise Control uses the Mono runtime libraries under the LGPL 2.0. ConnectWise Control uses the Mono class libraries under the MIT X11 license.

Libav

ConnectWise Control uses Libav for transcoding server recordings when running under Mono. Libav is packaged in binary form as a dynamic library within the ConnectWise Control application. ConnectWise Control uses Libav under the LGPL 2.1. It is compiled without --enabled-gpl and without --enable-nonfree. We get it from: git://git.libav.org/libav.git

OpenMCDF

ConnectWise Control uses OpenMCDF to open OLE compound documents. OpenMCDF is compiled from source statically into the libraries of the ConnectWise Control application. ConnectWise Control uses OpenMCDF under the MPL 1.1.

OpenJDK

ConnectWise Control uses OpenJDK for the runtime under OS X. OpenJDK is packaged in binary form as dynamic libraries within the ConnectWise Control application. ConnectWise Control uses OpenJDK under the GPL 2 with the Classpath Exception. We've forked it (simply for bug fixes), and the source is available here.

SQLite

ConnectWise Control uses SQLite for the built-in database engine. SQLite is compiled from source and included statically into the libraries of the ConnectWise Control application. SQLite has been dedicated to the public domain.

LZMA SDK

ConnectWise Control uses the LZMA SDK for some various compression needs. The LZMA SDK is compiled from source and included statically into the libraries of the ConnectWise Control application. The LZMA SDK is placed in the public domain.

zlib

ConnectWise Control uses zlib for other various compression needs. zlib is packaged in binary form as a dynamic library within the ConnectWise Control application. ConnectWise Control uses zlib under the zlib license.
