Comment (by Andrey Okunev):

 The violation has been cured (on Dec 25th), an updated installer has been
 uploaded to our server.

 Since we had just released the product (on Dec 20th), we don't expect the
 violating installer to have propagated to other locations (such as
 download portals, etc.).

 We had no intention to violate the license: libpostproc was put into the
 installer by mistake. The product was never using it.

 An internal LGPL compliance checklist has been created and every new build
 will be checked against it before upload.

 Thanks for the report and apologies to the community.
