Wed 23 Feb 2011 08:53:04 AM UTC, original submission:

In order to simplify usage of precompiled binaries on embedded devices where not all required libraries are installed (e.g. http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=31272#31272 ) optional features (magic, gd, upnp, etc) should be loaded dynamically so that user can disable them without recompiling. This should be possible with dynlink (for native code since 3.11.0). And so there will be no need to compile several builds (as fabtar did) for distribution, but only one with plugins. Probably this can be done for network plugins too (but more involved I guess).
