Hi @enkp,

You can read a summary of changes from 1.1 to 2.0 here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/MPL/2.0/Revision-FAQ/

The main bullets for why to upgrade from 1.1 are:

  • MPL 2.0 makes compliance simpler, both for you and for people who receive code from you.
  • MPL 2.0 provides patent protections for you and your contributors more in line with those of other open source licenses, and allows your entire community to protect any contributor if the contributor is sued.
  • Compatibility with Apache and GPL makes code reuse and redistribution easier for you and for the broader open source community.

So just as we keep our dependencies updated, this is making sure our license stays updated to make it easier for everyone.
