It would appear that something changed during 3.5 development in
the component source code that makes the connectors I provide for
Linux and Mac incompatible with versions 3.3.x and 3.4.x.

As I understand things, in general, compiling a connector against
version 3.y guarantees only binary compatibility with versions 3.x
with x >= y. So if you compile against 3.4 you'll get a connector
compatible with 3.5 *and* with 3.4. If you compile against 3.3, it
will be compatible with 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5.

If a connector compiled against 3.3 or 3.4 does not work with 3.5 for
ABI reasons (ABI = application binary interface), that is a bug in
LibreOffice 3.5, which needs to be fixed before release. I already
found (and fixed in collaboration with Kohei) such a bug, see

If we have such a bug left, please raise it with reproduction
instructions (put me in CC, but I'm a bit overscheduled now for
"illness in the family" reasons).
