Bug Description


As per product requirement, we have released a git-snapshot based pre-release version of zeromq3 4.2.0 to yakkety (4.1.5+git20160811+2fc86bc) as the upstream version was not yet available. The agreement was that we will release the snapshot-based version only if, once the official update is available we will update and switch.

The rationale for this would be that the snapshot-based version is anyway more-or-less feature compatible with the official version. It's also not wise to keep shipping a snapshot for long as some bugfixes might be missing from the cherry-pick. The generated binaries are binary-compatible, with only a few new symbols exported in the main 4.2.0 version.

[Test Case]

No particular test-case - installing the new version and making sure that existing reverse-dependencies still work as intended.

[Regression Potential]

There is, of course, some regression potential, but as already mentioned: there weren't too many commits since the git snapshot that our previous version was based off.
