YASARA is linked with the following libraries licensed with the LGPL:
- The FFMPEG library using LGPL v2.1, you can find the license in the yasara/mpg folder.
The LGPL requires mainly two things:
- That the source code of the libraries is made available, you can obtain it from firstname.lastname@example.org.
- That the program is provided as object code that allows you to link your own versions of the libraries. To get
the YASARA object code, go to the update page, and input LGPL in the version number field.
We cannot provide support if YASARA is linked with other
versions of the libraries.
The GPL is a more restrictive
license, which does not allow linking of GPLed and non-GPLed software.
