FreeType 2 (freetype)

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/opentype, which are used by FreeType.

The Independent JPEG Group's JPEG Software (libjpeg)

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.

MNG Library (libmng)

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)

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.

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

SQLite (sqlite)

SQLite is a small C library that implements a self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine. -- quoted from www.sqlite.org.

According to the comments in the source files, the code is in the public domain. See the SQLite Copyright page on the SQLite web site for further information.

Wintab API (wintab)

Wintab is a de facto API for pointing devices on Windows. The wintab code is from http://www.pointing.com/WINTAB.HTM.

See src/3rdparty/wintab/wintab.h for license details.

Data Compression Library (zlib)

zlib is a general purpose data compression library. All the code is thread safe. The data format used by the zlib library is described by RFCs (Request for Comments) 1950 to 1952 -- quoted from src/3rdparty/zlib/README.

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