Description Jamey Sharp 2006-02-21 16:16:14 UTC
libXCB.so is currently marked version 0.0.0. It needs a real version number.
Somebody needs to tell me how to give it one and what version number it should have.
Comment 1 Vincent Torri 2006-03-13 18:14:23 UTC
You can add version stuff of libtool in src/Makefile.am. Either : 

libXCB_la_LDFLAGS = -release 0.9.0

or maybe better:

libXCB_la_LDFLAGS = -release $(PACKAGE_VERSION).0

to use the usual major.minor.micro version of autoconf. Or

libXCB_la_LDFLAGS = -version-info 1:0:0

to use the current.revision.age version of libtool. There's something strange
with the last one : When I do :

libXCB_la_LDFLAGS = -version-info 0:9:0

I get libXCB.0.0.9. I don't understand why.
Comment 2 Josh Triplett 2006-04-29 14:58:42 UTC
See the comment in xcb/src/Makefile.am for an explanation of the libtool
-version-info flag.

We released XCB 0.9 as libXCB.so.0.0.0; this will change to libXCB.so.1 with the
1.0 release when we drop all deprecated functions at that point.  It should then
hopefully never change, with any deprecated functions remaining indefinitely.
Comment 3 Josh Triplett 2006-10-12 03:02:17 UTC
We have now released libxcb 1.0RC1 (which used libxcb.so.0) and 1.0RC2 (which
used libxcb.so.1).  Barring some horrible bug which requires an ABI bump to fix
(highly unlikely) we will release 1.0 with the same soname as 1.0RC2,
libxcb.so.1, and close this bug at that time.

retitled bug
Comment 5 Josh Triplett 2006-12-04 15:35:59 UTC
We've released XCB 1.0, and it uses libxcb.so.1.  Marking this as fixed.
