Small note here -- I don't know what the Amarok 2.x release schedule is
like, but TagLib 1.5 (or 1.4.1 -- once I look at the diff I'll decide
the appropriate version number) will finally, seriously, be pushed out
the door in the next week or two. I finally decided to just go
bugger-all on it and release more or less what's in SVN, since while I
often manage to review a handful of patches at a time and commit some as
appropriate, finding the time to really go through all of the
outstanding patches just isn't happening right now.
I'll try to test this patch before I do the tarball, but honestly,
unless the improvements are dramatic I'll probably leave it out. I just
finally got my Linux box working again (OpenSUSE 10.2 put it completely
out of use for the last two months -- something in the USB keyboard
driver there caused the keyboard to stop working every couple of minutes.)
The one final thing that I was waiting on, and just got the last
confirmation for yesterday was the switch to a dual LGPL / MPL for the
next release. If I have time this weekend I'll push out the release.
As for how it affects Amarok, since TagLib is API / ABI stable, it's
just a question if the next round of distros will ship Amarok 1.x or
2.x. The next TagLib version wouldn't even require Amarok to be
relinked. (As has been true since 1.0.)
