Hi, I have libraw1394-2.0.5 waiting in the wings to update from version
1.3.0, the last version update was Tue Mar 18 20:58:03 CET 2008, I think
this is due to the libraw website dying. My search found many packages
dependent on it, one being kdebase4-workspace and a few Packman ones,
fortunately most are in the multimedia projects so can be easily fixed.
The main change is streaming video handling.
I'm in the process of getting new package ffado, which needs libraw1394,
ready for factory and I still have to find or create dbus-c++ for ffado
so it will be a couple of weeks before libraw hits factory, it's going
to multimedia:libs next week where I will try to find any glitches.

Is the new libraw version source compatible with the old one, or will we have
to patch things?

Are you planning to carry a compat package of the old version if the changes
are too intrusive?

According to upstream it's an improvement, the only casualty seems to be
libid1394 which had an old 1.xx version building as well as the latest
2.1.2 version, I've had to disable the 1.2.2 build which was only needed
by a gnome libpt2 plugin. I'm pretty confident that up to date packages
can only improve and it may even have prevented some future breakages.
