License change: from AGPL to LGPL

BEdita core team decided for a license change.

The next major release of BEdita - 3.2 codename populus - will be released with a new license.

LGPL v3GNU Lesser General Public License, has been selected for BEdita.

This will give more freedom to our users and present a clearer license scheme.

This means:

  1.  you can build proprietary or free software solutions using BEdita, with no restrictions
  2. the only copyleft restrictions are on BEdita itself: i.e. if you modify BEdita core and distribute a proprietary software built with it, you have to publish those modifications (and only those) with a LGPL license
