Okay, Qt licensing is still on-topic, so here goes:

The current version of Qt is 100% Free Software and 100% Open Source. The
previous versions of Qt (1.4x and prior) were not Free or Open (merely
semi-free), and this may be what you meant. All software that is currently
based on Qt 1.4x is being upgraded to work with Qt 2.0.

It would make sense, at least until Qt 1.4x fades into history, that we refer
to Qt by it's versions 1.4 or 2.0.
