Linux Foundation Launches OpenTofu (formerly OpenTF)

OpenTF, the newly formed fork of Terraform, has been rebranded as OpenTofu, with support from the Linux Foundation, reports Sean Michael Kerner.

When Hashicorp changed Terraform’s license from the open source Mozilla Public License v2.0 to a business source license last month, it raised concerns within the open software community, leading to the OpenTF fork, notes Kerner. Now, “OpenTofu aims to create an open, community-driven successor to the Hashicorp Terraform infrastructure-as-code technology, under a neutral governance model.”

OpenTofu is a drop-in replacement for Terraform,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation in his announcement at Open Source Summit.
