Package: libnative-platform-java
Version: 0.11-4
Severity: serious
Justification: makes other package FTBFS


  gradle in unstable works with libnative-platform-java 0.10+dfsg-2 but does
not work with libnative-platform-java 0.11-4.

  A detailed explaination for gradle can be seen in #844020.

  This problematic situation leads to several packages FTBFS, at
least htsjdk (#843686) and gradle itself.

  Normaly, if a new version of a library do not works, by design,
with program compiled with the old version, a package rename (and
an SONAME bump for ELF libraries) is required in order to avoid
to silently break reverse dependencies.
  I do not know libnative-platform-java enough to know if this
breakage is known and normal (i.e. a package rename should have
been done) or if this is a plain bug.
