             Project: Weex
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Android, iOS
    Affects Versions: 0.12, 0.13, 0.14, 0.15, 0.16

As we know,[The Apache Software Foundation bans the usage of Facebook BSD+Patents licensed
in Apache products|https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-x]
The Facebook BSD+Patents license includes a specification of a PATENTS file that passes along
risk to downstream consumers of our software imbalanced in favor of the licensor, not the
licensee, thereby violating our Apache legal policy of being a universal donor. The terms
of Facebook BSD+Patents license are not a subset of those found in the ALv2, and they cannot
be sublicensed as ALv2.” 
        Weex-Team have heard the news and we decide to remove Facebook Yoga with its additional
Facebook BSD+Patents license.  In order to release the next version as soon as possible, we
will create a new LayoutEngine based on [the Google 's Flex-Layout|https://github.com/google/flexbox-layout].
