The Aciqra 2 codebase has been released under the Aciqra License for some time. However, use of this license has prevented most other projects from being able to make use of the code and therefore limits the importance of the project as a whole. As a result, the Aciqra 3 series will be released under a more widely accepted license: the General Public License version 3, otherwise known as the GPL v3, as published by the Free Software Foundation.

With Aciqra 2.3 released and refined, the Aciqra 2 series has finally come to a conclusion after four years of active development. Although not all of the features originally planned for the series were implemented, such as telescope control, implementing them into the current system would require more work and likely more time than if they were directly implemented into the third series of Aciqra, skipping Aciqra 2 entirely to save time and effort in the long run.
