According to the changelog, Monkey's Audio is licensed under 3-clause BSD starting with version 10.18, released the 10th August of 2023. This is the same kind of license FLAC and WavPack use.

  •     Changed: Updated the installer to NSIS 3.09.
  •     Changed: Updated to version 2.80 of the ALAC tool.
