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 https://patches.ubuntu.com/h/hdf5/hdf5_1.8.13+docs-15ubuntu2.patch My advice would be to choose whichever of those you think is lower-risk. 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 to go? (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.)
