Key points:
 
# ld will no longer automatically search in the dependencies of linked objects.
 
# If your project used both libraries A and B, it will not compile unless A and B are both explicitly linked.
 
# There are more explanations on the Features page. [[UnderstandingDSOLinkChange |here]]
 
  
Under the new changes, if your package fails its build with a message like:
