This software is no longer free!

The last version that is freely available (0.25.0) dates back to mid-2009. Development is carried on (last version: 0.31.6 released May 2010) but forum access to the support section as well as the download section is only available to 'contributors'. One has to 'donate' at least 15 EUR to gain contributor status.

"[23th April 2009]
To gain access to contributors section (and to new versions) you must donate 15€ (15 Euros) or more.
Please, fill out Comment field(Instructions to merchant) on paypal page with your forum username."

I am not sure about the new license terms, but I would categorize this software rather as 'commercial' than as 'free', since it is not real 'donationware' either (donations are mandatory!)
