I created a new package xfconf4.12 that can install alongside xfconf-devel. This way anything linked against the older libraries from xfconf 4.12.x (libxfconf-0.so.2) will still work. Please make sure you rebuild everything in the list that prints out when you install against xfconf-devel (4.13) or install xfconf4.12.

With release of xfce4 4.14 and related components this package won't be updated until new development snapshots become available (probably with 4.15.x release cycle). Please don't flag for deletion or out of date (unless there is a new development release).

I'll do that, thanks!

If you upgrade to the latest pkgrel 4.13.1-2, it will show you at the end which packages are linked against libxfconf-0.so.2 (from xfconf<4.13) which will need to be rebuilt to link against libxfconf-0.so.3 (from xfconf>=4.13.1)

Well, I built them the other day, but almost nothing worked. xfwm4 complained it couldn't find libxfconf-0.so.2, xfsettings wouldn't apply the changes etc. I'll try your solution.

Yes, for the moment, I do recommend building the rest of the *-devel packages against the xfconf from extra. If you have more luck installing this and then rebuilding the packages the install script flags, let me know.

I'm not sure I understand. Do you recommend building the rest of the -dev packages against stable xfconf?

4.13.1 reverted the soname name bump and bumped the soname version instead. No libxfconf-1, but libxfconf-0.so.3 from libxfconf-0.so.2, so everything will need a rebuild, but shouldn't need a port

@Skynnyk: Yeah, I'm going to hold off until at least some of the core xfce packages are updated.

xfconf 4.13 is available ( https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce-announce/2017-June/000520.html ), and now provide libxfconf-1. All plugins linked to libxfconf-0 will break, so we need to find a way to still provide libxfconf-0, maybe with a new package which only provide libxfconf-0.so (and related files) ?

Note that xfce4-panel and xfce4-settings are not yet ported to support libxfconf-1 ( https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2017-June/031959.html ).

So maybe wait a little bit before packaging it.
