ZLIB linking problem

After updating to the tip one of my libs can’t find ZLIB symbols anymore. I get these linker errors:

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _z_deflateEnd referenced in function …
error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _z_deflate referenced in function …
error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol z_deflateInit referenced in function …

It used to be fine. Is there something I can do about this?

They’re hidden away inside a namespace now, deliberately to avoid them causing link errors in projects that use their own copy of zlib. I guess you can still access them if you specify the same namespace - have a look through the source if you need to find its name.

No, the older version also had the zlibNamespace already.

It seems the problem is the extern "C" lines in zlib.h and juce_GZIPDecompressorInputStream.cpp you have removed. As soon as I add them again it works.

My lib seems to need them, what can I do about this in the lib?

The older version declared a namespace, but the extern “C” prevented it being applied to the symbols - that’s why Iremoved it. If you want to use the symbols, you’ll need to include and use the zlib headers in exactly the same way that I did it in the juce code, or just link to your own copy of zlib.
