There is no v2 code.

Note that libzmq is LGPL3, not GPL3 - and there is a static linking
exception, so you are free to link dynamically or statically to your
application. You application will not be subject to the LGPL3 terms.

The license switch is not yet complete and there is no ETA available,

Kind regards,
