For 3.1, I would like to provide a top-level header file for each of the libraries in E-D-S and deprecate including individual header files. The benefits should be clear by now: more flexibility to change or rearrange header files without breaking the public API.
Valid #include directives for E-D-S libraries will be: #include <libebackend/libebackend.h> #include <libedataserver/libedataserver.h> #include <libedataserverui/libedataserverui.h> #include <libebook/libebook.h> #include <libecal/libecal.h> I'm not bothering with the backend libraries just yet. They're less of an issue than the client-side libraries. To enforce this we'll use the same mechanism as in GLib and GTK+, except for now we'll issue a #warning instead of an #error: #warning Including <libecal/e-cal.h> directly is deprecated. #warning Please use #include <libecal/libecal.h> instead. We could also test for an EDS_DISABLE_SINGLE_INCLUDES definition which would issue an #error instead of a #warning. After maybe a year or two we'll crack down and issue #errors in some future 3.(odd).1 release. Any objections? _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
