Qt Trolltech: Note that the Qt/Embedded Open Source Edition is not distributed under the QPL, but under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

For development non-free/proprietary software, the Qt Professional Edition is available. It has a normal commercial library license, with none of the special restrictions of the QPL or the GPL.

iaxclient library:

IAXClient is an Open Source library to implement the IAX protocol used by The Asterisk Software PBX

Although asterisk supports other IP protocols (including SIP, and with patches, H.323), IAX's simple, lightweight nature gives it several advantages, particularly in that it can operate easily through NAT and packet firewalls, and it is easily extensible and simple to understand.
