See what it said? "new licence"
The new licence does not apply to code covered by the old licence, only
to new code or a combined package of old and new.
As long as updates with the new licence do not pollute what we already
have, we are fine.
Nobody can retrospectively take away permission already granted unless
they reserved the right to do that in the first place. Even then it is
doubtful they could make it stick unless they notified users in
writing. Fat chance.
Never heard of a fork?
