Bug#325940: depends on a FLAC library no longer available in unstable

Package: gst-plugins0.8
Severity: serious


If you're receiving this message, you have a package that depends on one
of the FLAC libraries (libFLAC, libFLAC++, libOggFLAC, libOggFLAC++.)
Once again, the SONAME of the libraries has increased due to an API
transition and you must rebuild your packages.

Please briefly review the upstream API changelog at:


to check if any of the API changes affect your FLAC-depending package.
In most cases, a simple rebuild will be sufficient to transition. If you
like, you can version the libflac-dev, libflac++-dev, liboggflac-dev,
or liboggflac++-dev build-dependency to (>= 1.1.2-1) to ensure that your
package is autobuilt against the new versions of the libraries.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the transition.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you.
