Apple We've had an immense hubbub about the delay in the source code release of Honeycomb, which led to a storm of critique being sent Google's way. Turns out there's another company withholding source code, and this time it's Apple. They have stopped releasing the LGPL source code for WebKit in iOS since iOS 4.3.0, released about 8 weeks ago. Turns out - this isn't the first time Apple has refused to release (L)GPL'd code. It took them six months to release the required GPL source code for iOS 4.1.

I'm sure no one probably cares, OS6+ of the Blackberry browser is based on Webkit and is available for download at: http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/blackberry6/browser_open_sou...

Also there is an acknowledgement page in the About section of the Options application on devices that credits "the WebKit Open Source project (including the KDE project) and JavaScriptCore Project (including portions from the KJS project)" and lists by name about 100 contributors.

the Symbian/Maemo browsers based on WebKit publishes the source at http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/S60WebKit
