Due to libmodplug having a rather irregular release schedule and often breaking binary compatibility with previous versions, the libopenmpt team has decided that maintaining libopenmpt-modplug (our libmodplug emulation layer based on libopenmpt) as part of the libopenmpt package is not the best solution.
We decided to split out libopenmpt-modplug into its own package
libopenmpt-modplug. This package will only provide an Autotools based build
system. It will be maintained in OpenMPT SVN trunk / GIT master in the
The current libopenmpt-modplug as part of the regular libopenmpt package is deprecated from now on in libopenmpt 0.4, and will be removed with libopenmpt 0.5.
