It didn't, even the last ABI change was on 2009-03-08 and that only
affected libavutil.
Several things were deprecated and new things added, but no incompatible
API or ABI change.
Also, feature requests do not belong on this list, and even for a
feature request this lacks an exact description of _what_ you want.
And no, "frame accurate seeking" without any further details certainly
is not a description, I guess about half the implementations that I
could suggest that match that term wouldn't be useful to you at all.
(in particular on is "it's already implemented, just decode the file
normally and drop the first n decoded frames).
