As explained in the Update Notes, the Generic Plugin API Version has
changed since Audacious 2.4.2, and all plugins need a rebuild. Or else
they are not loaded.
Plugin packages not provided by Fedora can only be rebuilt once the
Audacious update is available in the stable updates repository.
On top of that, there hasn't been a strong dependency between the 3rd
party plugin packages and the base player, which would reflect their
specific Plugin API requirements. The plugin packages could have required
a specific version of Audacious though, even if that would be too strict
since some minor releases of Audacious *are* compatible.
Future updates of Audacious (currently only in Fedora 15 development,
however) will be able to add a hard dependency on a specific
audacious(plugin-api) package capability. That will make it possible for
3rd party plugin packages to block an incompatible update of Audacious in
Fedora by creating a broken dependency temporarily.
