[geos-devel] Upgrading to geos 3.3.0 broke all our codebase !

I upgraded to geos-3.3.0 and it broke all our code base. :( The 
offending change was the use of virtual inheritance which broke all our 
static_casts. The « easy » fix is to s/static_cast/dynamic_cast 
everywhere, but that increases the runtime cost...

I follow (I think) all the mailing lists related (geos-* and postgis-*) 
and don't recall this being discussed. Have I missed something ? And if 
not, what was the rationale behind this change ?
