Until we see the license we won't know for sure but, from the description in the article, it doesn't sound like it's the same thing at all!

Do I as a contributor have the same rights as Castle? If I licensed my contribution under the GPL, could Castle legitimately use it? I suspect that the answers to both those questions are "no".

The as-yet-unreleased license doesn't sound as if it's a "Free" (as in Freedom) software license at all.
