A dxflib license allows you to develop and distribute commercial / proprietary applications using dxflib.

The dxflib library itself can be downloaded from our web site at:
http://qcad.org/en/dxflib-downloads

There is no additional or different download when purchasing a license. Only the licensing terms are different.

dxflib is updated when new features are added or bugs are fixed.

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the answer. I don't know if this is a good place to ask these questions,
but I'll give it a shot.

Where can I see the current progress of the dxflib? Do you provide
some public repository where I can see changes, contributors etc?

I'm searching for some library that can read and write DXF files,
and I'm thinking between dxflib or qcad c++ library. Better the
interface, I'll be happier :)

I see that you're very involved in the development, so do you have
any piece of advice on that?

Kind regards,
Dejan

dxflib parses DXF files and hands you the data as well as providing some convenience functions to write DXF files. Note that for writing, you still need a good understanding of the DXF format to write the sections in the correct order, etc. dxflib does not require any non-standard third party libraries or frameworks. dxflib does not interpret the data in a DXF file in any way nor does it know (or care) how to visualize entities. dxflib is solely about reading and writing data from and to the DXF format.

The QCAD C++ libraries are a completely different matter. They contain an entire CAD engine, graphics views, etc. So this is very likely overkill for you. The QCAD C++ libraries also depend on Qt.

The QCAD repository is currently the master repository for dxflib:
