Guys,Last time we bumped them was right before 6.0-RELEASE; we did it
I have noticed that libpthread shared library version number in 6-STABLE
and 7-CURRENT is the same (.2), which causes all threaded application
compiled for 6-STABLE to segfault when executed on 7-CURRENT system,
unless libpthread.so.2 is replaced with with its 6-STABLE version which
in turn will create problems with threaded apps compiled for 7-CURRENT.
IMHO we should increase version number in 7-CURRENT, so that it is in
the line of what we have for other system libraries.
both in HEAD and RELENG_6. We certainly should be bumping them
all again closer to a 7.0-RELEASE, when the RELENG_7 is about to
be created. If we bump some majors now, and break APIs later but
still before a release (we are allowed to do it in -CURRENT), we
would have to bump them again before a release, and because it's
No, in -current we force people to recompile everything. Plus
we have symbol versioning in the libraries most likely to be
effected. If we bump, we should enable symbol versioning at
the same time.
I agree with the last part, but I think we need to bump sooner rather
than later because we need to support binary only applications compiled
against 6.x (remember, we're not really supporting anything else so
smart vendors are going to build against it).
again at pre-release would work, but doing it without also bumping
"to be versioned" libraries is IMO pointless. And if we bump all
of them now, we'll have to bump some of them again when versioning
is turned on by default. I think more important would be to know
the plans regarding the symbol versioning in 7.0-RELEASE; if the
plan is to have them versioned, then I think we should sync shlib
majors bumping with this change.
