Having code that requires more than a single (binary) version of a shared library is what is commonly referred to as DLL Hell in Windows. This can arise when a new version of a component is released which must be consumed by clients of the previous version, as well as the new. There are varied methods of handling the problem, from unsightly conversions to down-right nasty and undefined, or at best, non-portable, behaviour. This talk is about finding a portable and palatable solution.

About Steve Love

Steve Love is a contractor who likes the idea of making shiny new C# applications talk to old grotty C++ ones. He'd prefer to be working on the shiny new stuff, but currently gets to do old grotty legacy C++. Not that he's bitter about that at all.
