I'm looking for something like QCodeEdit. However the license is a problem. Is there any chance that the code will be released under LGPL not that Qt 4.5 is out?
I'm afraid no. You can obtain permissive (BSD/LGPL/whatever) licenses for a small fee but not for free.
Contrary to Qt Software I don't have a big company like Nokia paying the bills so that is not an option for me (not that I make a lot of money out of it but it helps
and I really don't like the idea of giving it away for free if people are to use it in commercial projects)...

best regards
