I contacted upstream about it earlier and was about to open a bug report.

The library currently is versioned by upsteam as 0.0.0 but upstream
broke the ABI without bumping the SONAME. I sent a patch upstream to
bump the SONAME but I have not heard from him yet but it has only been

I'm trying to see if upstream will bump the soname to 1 or re-add the
removed symbols. I could bump the SONAME to 0debian1 if I don't get a
reply from upstream soon.

I'm already preparing a package and checking if all the reverse
dependencies build. I already checked dolphin-emu and and a rebuild
fixes it. So the transition should be easy.

For a SONAME bump I would also need someone to upload it to
experimental since it would require a trip via NEW. Two trips if we go
0 -> 0debian1 -> 1.
