I recently discovered that libraw under Unix builds to an archive file of .o's. This means Shotwell (the program we're developing here at Yorba) is statically linking with libraw.
Is there any work being done to make libraw build to a shared library, i.e. libraw.so? This would be a huge help, as it means we can tell users to upgrade their version of libraw without the need to recompile Shotwell.
