Third-Party Licenses Used in Qt

Qt includes a number of third-party libraries that are used to provide certain features. Unlike the code described in the code used in Qt document, these libraries are supplied alongside the Qt modules.

Third Party Software may impose additional restrictions and it is the user's responsibility to ensure that they have met the licensing requirements of the GPL, LGPL, or Qt Commercial license and the relevant license of the Third Party Software they are using.

Run configure -help to see any options that may be available for controlling the use of these libraries.

FreeType 2 (freetype) version 2.3.6

The FreeType project is a team of volunteers who develop free, portable and high-quality software solutions for digital typography. We specifically target embedded systems and focus on bringing small, efficient and ubiquitous products. -- quoted from 3rdparty/freetype/docs/freetype2.html.

See src/3rdparty/freetype/docs/FTL.txt and src/3rdparty/freetype/docs/GPL.txt for license details.

See also the files in src/3rdparty/harfbuzz, which are used by FreeType.

Parts of the FreeType projects have been modified and put into Qt for use in the painting subsystem. These files are ftraster.h, ftraster.c, ftgrays.h and ftgrays.c. The following modifications has been made to these files:

HarfBuzz (harfbuzz)

This is HarfBuzz, an OpenType Layout engine.

It was derived originally from the OpenType code in FreeType-1.x, ported to FreeType2. (This code has been abandoned for FreeType2, but until something better comes along, should serve our purposes.) In addition to porting to FreeType-2, it has been modified in various other ways. -- quoted from src/3rdparty/harfbuzz/README.

The Independent JPEG Group's JPEG Software (libjpeg) version 6b

This package contains C software to implement JPEG image compression and decompression. JPEG (pronounced "jay-peg") is a standardized compression method for full-color and gray-scale images. JPEG is intended for compressing "real-world" scenes; line drawings, cartoons and other non-realistic images are not its strong suit. JPEG is lossy, meaning that the output image is not exactly identical to the input image. -- quoted from src/3rdparty/libjpeg/README.

See src/3rdparty/libjpeg/README for license details.

MD4 (md4.cpp and md4.h)

MD4 (RFC-1320) message digest.
Modified from MD5 code by Andrey Panin <pazke@donpac.ru>

Written by Solar Designer <solar@openwall.com> in 2001, and placed in
the public domain. There's absolutely no warranty.

See src/3rdparty/md4/md4.cpp and src/3rdparty/md4/md4.h for more information about the terms and conditions under which the code is supplied.

MD5 (md5.cpp and md5.h)

This code implements the MD5 message-digest algorithm. The algorithm is due to Ron Rivest. This code was written by Colin Plumb in 1993, no copyright is claimed. This code is in the public domain; do with it what you wish. -- quoted from src/3rdparty/md5/md5.h

See src/3rdparty/md5/md5.cpp and src/3rdparty/md5/md5.h for more information about the terms and conditions under which the code is supplied.

MNG Library (libmng) version 1.0.10

The libmng library supports decoding, displaying, encoding, and various other manipulations of the Multiple-image Network Graphics (MNG) format image files. It uses the zlib compression library, and optionally the JPEG library by the Independant JPEG Group (IJG) and/or lcms (little cms), a color-management library by Marti Maria Saguer. -- quoted from src/3rdparty/libmng/doc/libmng.txt

See src/3rdparty/libmng/LICENSE for license details.

PNG Reference Library (libpng) version 1.2.29

Libpng was written as a companion to the PNG specification, as a way of reducing the amount of time and effort it takes to support the PNG file format in application programs. -- quoted from src/3rdparty/libpng/libpng.txt.
