I assume that by "not" you mean "now" :)

LibLime does not support any version of Koha which is developed by the
Koha open source community. They support one version, LibLime Koha
4-something, which is ostensibly open source because they sometimes
push to a github repo, but which is developed exclusively by LibLime
in isolation.

They also sell "LibLime Academic Koha," which is 100% closed-source,
despite being based on GPL'ed code. Both versions diverged from Koha
around version 3.2. No one from LibLime contributes back to the open
source version of Koha anymore.
