Subject Re: TAP5-1213: Changes to public API
Date Thu, 15 May 2014 23:48:45 GMT
I'd need to know a bit more; this will tend to break 3rd party libraries
that compile against the old code, which is not so good. Possibly if the
new information could be added under an entirely new method of the existing
APIs that would be less of a problem.
