I sense frustration in these words, but let's get the facts straight: * The last four stable series (2.5.*-2.8.*) didn't break the API. * Adapting to the new APIs is no waste of time, rather maintenance cost, also improving the API using program in the process, as the old APIs were deprecated for a reason. And yes, the upstream developers are aware of that maintenance cost, I made sure of that. Please go and read the discussion upstream . And I can understand your frustration, after all, I'm the one who wrote patches for all affected Debian packages. > Just look at the affected code in k3b, > plugins/decoder/ffmpeg/k3bffmpegwrapper.cpp: many defines and ifdef's, > just to make the very same code do the very same job, nothing less and > nothing more. I'm well aware how this file looks, as I wrote a patch for it. And most of these ifdef's could just be removed, unless you need to build this in ancient environments... > Sure, if I don't get around to test your patch or to integrate eventual > upstream fixes the plugin will need to be disabled, but honestly I don't > see how this would be in favour of our users. That's why I provided a patch, which should be more than enough to fix this issue properly for any reasonably maintained software.
