RTI provides free access to the latest release of Connext DDS for use with open source projects. With the free-of-charge RTI Open Community Source license, you may use Connext DDS to develop open source software or to use open source software that supports Connext DDS. RTI Open Community Source includes DDS library source code and pre-built binaries for the Linux and Windows operating systems.

Projects are eligible for an RTI Open Community Source License if they are developed in the open and freely available to anyone over the Internet. Users of open source projects that support Connext DDS may use Connext DDS at no charge under the RTI Open Community Source License.
