LibreSprite originated as a fork of Aseprite, developed by David Capello. Aseprite used to be distributed under the GNU General Public License version 2, but was moved to a proprietary license on August 26th, 2016.
This fork was made on the last commit covered by the GPL version 2 license, and is now developed independently of Aseprite.
