If so, you should really get out a 2.9.1 ASAP and pull this 2.9.0 verison.  If the binary incompatibility was intended, then this should've been released as 3.0 and called out in the release notes.  This is a huge issue for packagers and needs to be called out.

It seems to be binary compatible and there is no upstream soname bump 
according to http://upstream-tracker.org/versions/fontconfig.html
