Correct, it was added to the FAQ today. It has been (and still is) in
several other places, including the announcement of three weeks ago about
the new company and the licence on the home page - this story has now been
moved to the News page.

Now on News (yesterday on Home Page)
Also now in FAQ and all over the place in the the Licensing and Topics

All options have been considered. The owners of InterBase (current and
future) made the decision about licensing after lengthy discussions with
the developer community.

It looks as if you have about three months' history to catch up on. :-)
