This will not be fixed. As a matter of fact the next release due in the
next couple of days will probably be binary incompatible as well. So if
you can wait another week you should probably not release libebml
0.8.0/libmatroska 0.9.0 now in order not to have to change the soname

The libebml 2 that Steve Lhomme is working on is a complete rewrite in
C. Maybe it'll be named something else in the file system entirely
(e.g. libcebml ?). This has not been decided yet.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
