Ordnance Survey

I understand that, as from today, Ordnance Survey have been told they can no longer charge for the use of their data to avoid the tax payer having to pay for data they've already funded the collection of.

The OS site appears to be having some problems today and i guess that's due to lots of people trying to see what the impact of the new laws are.

Does anyone know for certain what parts of their data are to be made publicly available and royalty free ?

In particular, does this mean that their 1:50000 digital maps are now freely available or is this new found freedom simply going to extend to things like council boundary maps and post code maps ?
