Chesnay Schepler responds to an announcement:
On September 7th Lightbend announced a license change for the Akka project, the TL;DR being that you will need a commercial license to use future versions of Akka (2.7+) in production if you exceed a certain revenue threshold.

The purpose of this blogpost is to clarify our position on the matter.
Read on for what this means for Apache Flink.
