Hello Laura, Thank you for you report. This is a technical error. As we stated before our open source releases contain as the same binaries and sources as commercial releases except license info and this confusion was introduced by one of scripts. We have fixed the script and coming releases including just released development release will contain correct (Open Source) headers. Thanks, --Vladimir
