Oh, I didn't expect that.
Unfortunately, even if we didn't ship applications that used those
symbols, we have no way of knowing what our users did.
Besides the users of the applications, we have to support the users of
the library itself, i.e. people which had something working with
libspeex.so.1 and expect it to continue to work after an "apt-get upgrade".

That's great, thanks!

Will probably do, as soon as you release the first -rcN.

Yes, N in libfooN should be the soname (i.e. libfoo.so.N).

I have to see, I feel much more relieved after that statement.
You said libspeexdsp.so.8 in a previous mail and I was worried :)

Great, thanks a lot!
