Closed source program?

Post by nekibaja » Thu Mar 26, 2015 6:19 pm

First of all, sorry for bad english.

I have one question: Can you sell application that is made using wxWidgets library? Can you release your software as closed source without any charge?

Of course, the doublemax's answer is the best summary ;)

From https://www.wxwidgets.org/about/licence/:
The wxWindows Library Licence is essentially the L-GPL (Library General Public Licence), with an exception stating that derived works in binary form may be distributed on the user's own terms. This is a solution that satisfies those who wish to produce GPL'ed software using wxWidgets, and also those producing proprietary software.
[Ind. dev. - wxWidgets 3.0/3.1 under "Win 7 64-bit, TDM64-GCC" + "OS X 10.9, LLVM Clang"]
