I'd like to present a new project called "ABI Navigator" to search for binary symbols (functions, methods, global data, etc.) in open-source libraries: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator

The project allows to find out in which versions of libraries some symbol is defined, added, removed or changed. The data is taken from the ABI Tracker project (238 libraries and 0.9 million symbols currently): https://abi-laboratory.pro/tracker/

Example for symbol _Z8get_defsmPFbmE from Glibmm: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator&symbol=_Z8get_defsmPFbmE

The project aims to help developers and maintainers to resolve issues with missed symbols and navigate through the reports in the ABI Tracker.

Have you ever encountered the "undefined reference" error or want to know whether the symbol is _stable_ enough to import by your code? Try to find it in the ABI Navigator!
