Hi Konstantinos,

> So, which one is the "proper" soversion to be used? 2.0.65 or .65?

65 is the soversion, 2.0.65 is the library version. Because we break 
binary compatibility on every release right now, they are effectively 
incremented in lockstep. But in principle they are not related at all.

In other words, if we ever reach a state where the ABI is stable across 
releases, we might, say, have libphobos2-ldc.so.97 symlinking to 
libphobos2-ldc.so.2.0.99. I don't think the scheme is different from the 
established convention at all.
