1.2. What are the licensing options for Qt?

Starting from Qt 5.7, Qt is licensed under
 Commercial license
 LGPL3 open source license
 GPL2 or GPLv3 open source license

The general Qt toolkit, consisting of Qt Essential code libraries, the Qt add-on APIs, and the Qt Creator IDE are available dual-licensed for commercial and GPL licenses. Most of the Qt APIs are available also under LGPLv3 license but not all of the Qt Add-on modules.

In addition, the commercial Qt license includes additional tools and solutions for embedded development.
