As I understand it, an soname bump (from libfoo.so.5 to libfoo.so.6) should *only* be used for backwards-incompatible changes. If old clients can continue to use the newer library, then shouldn't it be just a change of *minor* version from libfoo.so.5.2 to libfoo.so.5.3, and the soname remains the same (libfoo.so.5). -- dwmw2 _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list email@example.com To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
