SONAME and package version question



I am working on packaging the ROTE library so that I can depend on it
for anyterm.  I need to package version 0.2.6 + the CVS from 20050511.
I have created a patch between the 0.2.6 release and the 20050511 CVS.

Without the patch, the relevant contents of the .deb are:

$ dpkg -c librote0_0.2.6-1_i386.deb
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-21 22:36:21 ./
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-21 22:36:20 ./usr/
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-21 22:36:21 ./usr/lib/
-rw-r--r-- root/root     13744 2005-06-21 22:36:21 ./usr/lib/librote.so.0.2.6
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2005-06-21 22:36:21 ./usr/lib/librote.so.0 -> librote.so.0.2.6

With the patch, the relevant content are:

$ dpkg -c librote0_0.2.6+20050511-1_i386.deb
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-22 10:48:51 ./
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-22 10:48:51 ./usr/
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2005-06-22 10:48:51 ./usr/lib/
-rw-r--r-- root/root     13744 2005-06-22 10:48:51 ./usr/lib/librote.so.0.2.7
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2005-06-22 10:48:51 ./usr/lib/librote.so.0 -> librote.so.0.2.7

Is it OK for the last digit in the library to change from 6 to 7?  Do I
need to do something about the version number?
