Simple Machines actually released 2.0 under a BSD Open-Source License after undergoing a few internal changes, going from an LLC to an NPO, meaning that they could release 2.0 (and subsequent releases) under a new license, allowing people to actually release the changes they make to the public and make a "fork" from SMF.
