Please note that this change only applies to the current and future versions of 32-bit kdb+, and only relates to production commercial use of the software. Normal development and educational usage is unchanged.
Previous versions of kdb+ that were downloaded prior to the change (09/13/2015) are also unaffected, and do permit commercial use of 32-bit kdb+.
We made this difficult decision based on legal risks associated with our customers using the unsupported free 32-bit version of kdb+ for commercial use.
