>Excerpts from Stefano D'Angelo's message of 2011-03-28 22:59:46 +0200:
Lacking sufficient knowledge of all the LADSPA hosts out there, I'm=20
unable to judge how many will cope with the addition of a port to an=20
existing plugin and how many will not.
However, I'd expect any host on whose design reasonably deep thought=20
has been expended to simply use the new plugin in place of the=20
previous one, with the the new port set to its default value. In this=20
case the plugin will operate exactly the same way the old version did.
(For what it's worth, ladspa.h does not mandate that a plugins' port=20
signature never changes.)
It is very unfortunate that such a change might break the way your=20
bridge code works, Stefano, and I would like to apologise in advance. =20
(If the addition of a 'version' symbol exported by caps.so is any=20
help, I'll be happy to add that.)
