Only did a quick check on their site, but it looks like the same  
offering as before, meaning a binary distribution of a library, not  
compatible to GPL at all.

Unless you of course link to this via Python! But, then you still might  
to make a deal with them on re-distributing. I didn't download it, but  
I'm pretty sure you only get the right to use the lib, not to spread
