This SONAME bump means the necessary rename has taken place in experimental.
What do you plan to do about unstable?
There are basically two options:
* send the experimental version to unstable, if you believe this to
have a low risk of derailing the g++-5 transition, and in
particular all the reverse-dependencies still build;
* do a "v5" rename in unstable, similar to
My advice would be to choose whichever of those you think is
The release team have said that starting the transition is OK for any
library whose library dependencies have all either started *their*
transitions, or been confirmed not to need transitions. hdf5
doesn't appear to depend on any C++ libraries except mpich, which
doesn't seem to be affected by this whole mess due to having a
simpler ABI than most C++ libraries - so I think hdf5 is ready
(If you require confirmation from the release team I can try to
get that, but I don't think they are going to be able to follow up
on each of the dozens of parallel transitions involved in the libstdc++
ABI change, which is why I'm trying to help keep things moving.)
