4.10 has been converted to use geos' c api. The c api is new with the
current geos version in debian and mapserver will be the first thing to
depend on it. The changes for geos 2.2.2(2.2.3 looks like nothing much)

Is there any pending issue before we release GEOS-2.2.2 ?

Changes since 2.2.1 are:

- Added GEOSArea(), GEOSLength(), GEOSEnvelope(), and GEOSGeomType() to
- Cleanups in C-API
- Support for gcc-4
- Fixed Polygon::equalsExact
- Improved XMLTester
- Fixed bug in NULL-factory Geometry constructor
- Cleanups in SWIG wrappers
- New Ruby bindings
- Enumerated SweepLineEvent's DELETE and INSERT labels

It will ship with C-API version 1.1.0

Does this new C-API version require a soname bump? I think there are
enough big changes here that we should tread very carefully. I'm not
comfortable with making the transition at this point.
