I'm not a Linux expert but I believe the convention under Linux is:


Having many years elapsed since the last liblog4cxx release I think it would be less confusing
for Linux developers using the log4cxx library to see the next version of the library increment
to 10.1.0. It makes more sense to increment the MINOR number than the BUILD number.

Thus personaly I would prefer the next release version to be liblog4cxx.so.10.1.0

Once you made up your own mind about which version numbering you will use to release the library
it is possible to commit an RC4 with the LT_VERSION set for the next release version in file
configure.ac. We would like to get a snapshot of the GIT repository and thoroughly test the
new candidate release. We have a product that uses the log4cxx library with both Windows and

Why not liblog4cxx.so.10.0.1? That's how I understand the docs in
configure.ac and I could try to implement a default increment of
LT_VERSION in the release-scripts available currently.

LT_VERSION=10:1:0 -> liblog4cxx.so.10.0.1
LT_VERSION=11:0:0 -> liblog4cxx.so.11.0.0

One of those is what I would prefer. While using the last line might
be wrong if no breaking interface was introduced, auto-incrementing
it should always work as well.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
