True that. I believe that in the past I have been updating libgnokii version just before doing the release.

I believe 0.6.31 did:
# - If binary compatibility has been broken (eg removed or changed interfaces)
# change to C-A+1:0:0
i.e. 7.0.1 -> (7-1+1):0:0 -> 7:0:0
WIth 0.6.32 we'd change to 8:0:0

Given theĀ gap between versions, I would depend on the next gnokii version to simplify the code.

That's a good question. I'm in favor of simplifying but what is the practice for using gnokii these days? If someone is still reading this mailing list and still using gnokii, can you say if you're now fully on utf8 or are the some other locales being used?

Having long break I'm now trying to restore my workflows and refresh git usage in some limited time boxes - sorry that it takes more than it should.
