GPL and ASIO


#1

Hey
I’ve been finding conflicting information on the licensing issues of releasing open source software under the GPL license that supports ASIO.
I’m planning on releasing an open source application built with JUCE which will support ASIO. I understand that the ASIO SDK cannot be distributed within my applications source code, however am I still able to distribute builds that support ASIO? According to the Audacity wiki page:

However I have read in other places that as long as there is a link within your source code to the Steinberg’s licensing agreement and the ASIO SDK download location, this shouldn’t be a problem.

Which of these statements is true?

If you search around you will find plenty of open source projects that include the ASIO sdk headers. Is this a violation of the Steinberg license? Maybe. Do you care?
