  Well, it was intended that way. 2.8.4 was intended to be "2.8.4 builds on VS2010" and
would have been binary-identical when building on VS2008 (and everything else 2.8.3 built
on previously). Robert threw in some changed to make it build with a newer version of
ffmpeg. I can't speculate about whether that changed the signature of the binary API or
not honestly, but I suspect it may have. So now, we probably will need to bump the so/DLL
version number?

  Once the version number is bumped or the API signature changes, it is no longer a
drop-in-binary-without-recompiling-apps replacement for 2.8.3 as we had originally hoped.

  Can anyone with more experience in these matters comment?
