I have checked the 1.5.8-3 -> 1.6.0-2 diff plus the news from
upstream and I get the feeling the SONAME bump is unneeded.
SO_MAJOR = $(GLEW_MAJOR).$(GLEW_MINOR)
LDFLAGS.SO = -shared -Wl,-soname=$(LIB.SONAME) [...]
LIB.SONAME = lib$(NAME).so.$(SO_MAJOR)
I suspect that upstream got the SONAME part wrong here and $(GLEW_MINOR)
is not supposed to be in the SONAME. Could you please ask your upstream
if they really intended to do a SONAME bump for "minor bug fixes and
some new extensions"?
