OK, I'm coming to this a little late (been sick) but I'll try
to answer all in one mail:

as far as I can piece together, the last releases went like:

FLAC release   libOggFLAC went to
-------------  ------------------------------------------
1.1.0          1:2:0 from 1:1:0 (code changes only I think)
1.1.1-beta1    2:0:1 from 1:2:0 (some i'faces added, some changed)
1.1.1          2:1:1 from 2:0:1 (code changes only, no
                                 interface changes)

I think this is all according to the libtool rules in

the 'enum renumbering' to me implied an 'interface change'
but maybe I misinterpreted.

a more detailed list of what changed between 1.1.0 and 1.1.1
is here (scroll down to the libraries section):


unfortunately I don't have anything that concise for earlier
versions but I can dig it out of CVS if needed.

hmm... not sure what "exposed" means in the libtool numbering
sense.  the libOggFLAC++ includes do #include the libOggFLAC
headers, but I have been (maybe erroneously) adjusting the
libtool numbers strictly by what changed in the C++ side.

I don't see how it was wrong... but maybe FLAC 1.1.1-beta1 was
the missing link.

I don't know what the custom on numbering betas is, but
flac-1.1.1-beta1 was public and people tend to live on the edge
linking and shipping beta stuff, so I thought it was safest to
treat it as a real version as far as libtool numbering goes.
