The LGPL only forces you to open your source code if the library is directly statically linked. As long as Fred and Team using the binaries (dll, so, dylib), it does not apply. So the discussion about the LGPL is more easy (there was also such statement by Freak in 2018 here).

Also, please see here at QT FAQ in "What are my obligations when using Qt under the LGPL?": The LGPL allows you to keep the source code of your application private as long as it is “work that uses” the library. Dynamic linking is usually recommended here.

I personally do not see licensing issues in using QT like this, even in commercial closed source projects (if you mention QT and its licence). For me, the QT subsystem was the only chance to provide my Linux version as only QT offers using the WebGadget in modern Linux systems. This was the only reason I switched from GTK. And I found a lot of QT subsystem related problems and issues which are not yet fixed. So sad. Due to these issues, my Linux port is more like a beta version and customers are bored about my Linux port. This is one of the reasons all newer products from my company are no longer using PB.

PB doesn't use statically linked QT, so the license which apply is the LGPL. So you don't have to buy a license when you ship a QT version of your PB program on Linux.

Thank you for the clear words. Great!

So the only thing missing are the open QT related bugs ;-)

Thank you Fred and Kukulkan. This was exactly my level of knowledge in this matter and it is also the result of my own research.

Seeing Fred in almost every "Last post" on the Bugs Linux forum is a satisfying experience. Thanks for that, the IDE should be a lot better on Linux!

@Fred : Do you think OSVersion() will be updated for the final? It currently goes up to MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) windows 10 (the first release)...

Yeah I know, but keep in mind ... Leonardo da Vinci was also an autodidact.
