    Hi Xformers,

    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
    in 0.89.

    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?

    happy xforming,

    regards, Michal.
