# To subscribers of the xforms list from Michal Szymanski <firstname.lastname@example.org> :
It's rather a kind of joke, to entertain you a bit.
CHANGES file coming with 0.89 says it is source-compatible with 0.88.
Well, it is not. My application happens to use "logical" contants
TRUE and FALSE, which were defined in 0.88 <forms.h> but not
BTW, the shared library coming with XForms is always built in such
a strange way, that the executables linked with it have full version
number hard-coded. Namely, e.g. libforms.so.0.88. So after upgrading,
even when the next version is binary compatible, it does not work.
This is unusual, as most of other shared libs get into executables
only with major number, so the upgrades in minor number version
work fine without recompiling or making fake older library.
Couldn't it be so with XForms?
