  Sleepycat sells out
and we by no-means meant that to be taken in a bad way. Oracle scooped them up for an undisclosed amount as they begin to rev up their picking-up of open-source projects. Here's the Oracle press release and SleepyCat themselves have to say.

I do want to be absolutely clear on one thing: We have no plans to change the open source strategy that Sleepycat pioneered, and that has been so successful for us. The Berkeley DB products will continue to be distributed under both open source and proprietary licenses. The open source community remains a critical factor in our success. Our commitment to that community is as strong today as it has always been.

If you're a Sleepycat customer, I think you'll like what you see. We'll be easier to find, we'll be able to offer more services in more places, and we'll have a much wider range of products for you to choose from when you're making your end-to-end architecture decisions. Our product plans are unchanged. We're staffed up and hard at work on the features you've asked us to build.
