hmm, after closer inspection ofthe output of dpkg-gensymbols, it seems like this was a false alarm. the libgmerlin0.symbols files contains a number of "MISSING" stanzas, which seem to have been merely updated: -#MISSING: 0.4.3# (optional)pixbuf_destroy_notify@Base 0.4.1 +#MISSING: 1.0.0~dfsg-1# (optional)pixbuf_destroy_notify@Base 0.4.1 it seems like all MISSING stanzas for 1.0.0 have also been there for 0.4.3 the rest of the changes are only additions. so i guess we are still save. but then: how come that there are MISSING stanzas at all? does this indicate, that at some point in the past, the library API did change, and it was ignored? > > as i understand it, this means that the SONAME has to change. > unfortunately i don't have any real clue what this means in practice. > > i guess, a start would be to simply rename the binary package to libgmerlin1 ah, i found the libpkg-guide. and that the soname should change in the build-process (automake) fbmas IOhannes
