I'm not a lawyer - but judging by that post, and the statements "...we are now adding LGPL v3 as a licensing option to Qt 5.4 in addition to LGPL v2.1", and "All modules that existed in Qt 5.3 will still be available under LGPL v2.1. So if you are using Qt under the GPL v2 or LGPL v2.1, nothing changes as long as you don’t use any of the new modules that are only available under LGPL v3", we should be OK, as long as we're careful about using some of the New Shiny(TM) stuff in 5.4.

That said, to be honest, I can't see us moving the UI to Qt Quick; or using WebGL, or the new HTML renderer, any time soon, anyway...

I don't *think* this affects us, but I haven't thought about it too hard.
