Ajaxian has a brief intro to Gaia Ajax Widgets today. Im surprised they do not mention the main thing about this new version: Gaia is now open-source. They now offer a dual-licence model; one GPL and a Gaia commerical license for all your corporate ajax needs.
Also, it seems like this new open-source release no longer includes the 'powered by' image which was inserted in earlier versions (making it useless in practical development).
I hope one of the nice Gaia guys can confirm this for me. confirmed.
