    Important Question Regarding AvalonEdit or TextEditor License

    So AvalonEdit is licensed under GNU Library General Public License (LGPL). I have made my own modification to the library's source code. I understand that I have to release the modified source code. My questions are:

    1. Do I release the modfied source code under the same license? Or can I choose another one, like MIT for example?
    2. Do I put my own name in the copyright field of the modified source code, or do I put IC#Code?

    Only AvalonEdit 4.x is LGPL; in 5.x we re-licensed to MIT.

    1. Modifications to LGPL code must also be LGPL.

    2. Don't remove the existing copyright notice. Feel free to add your own copyright notice in addition.
