<puts nosy Debian Maintainer hat on>

Given since the last release some public APIs have changed in an
incompatible way (eg: zmsg_encode/decode signatures), there should be a
major version bump (besides an ABI bump), and I'll have to upload a new
source/-dev package.

A while ago we also talked about the possibility of retiring the
deprecated APIs. Is that still on the plate?

Kind regards,
