License (library): LGPLv2.1+
License (manual and tools): GPLv2+

No, the library won't be changed LGPLv3+ because that would disallow the
use with GPLv2only software.  Manual and tools may be changed tpo GPLv3+
but I see no immediate reasons for this.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
