If this was about the synchronous APIs that SyncEvolution depends on, then I'd be really worried about this change. If those functions are not changed, SyncEvolution binaries from syncevolution.org will continue to work (full list of called functions attached). Having said that, are you sure that there is no way to preserve the old APIs? Perhaps the new implementation can be made available under a new name and the old one be implemented by mapping the GError to the old error code? I suspect that quite a few projects will have to adapt their source code if that's not the case. OpenOffice might be another candidate which tries to be binary compatible with different versions of Evolution. -- Bye, Patrick Ohly -- patrick.o...@gmx.de http://www.estamos.de/
