    2010-01-09 - Christoph Egger <christoph@debian.org> micropolis-activity (0.0.20071228-5) unstable; urgency=low * Update zerfleddert patch fixing the sparc issue (Closes: #564319) (LP: #505080), thanks to Kamal Mostafa for the report and the patch

    2009-12-12 - Christoph Egger <christoph@debian.org> micropolis-activity (0.0.20071228-4) unstable; urgency=low [ Christoph Egger ] * Update Vcs-* fields to follow reality * Update my E-Mail Address * Replace dh_clean -k by dh_prep, bump dependency on debhelper accordingly * Update zerfleddert patch to .20091012 (Fixes for the Monster + SDL builds) [ Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert ] * Drop obsolete patch macosx-patch.patch. Its changes got overwritten by another patch anyway ;-) * Refresh and modify micropolis-path.patch. Micropolis uses X Shared Memory, now. The usage of X Shared Memory was originally disabled because it was buggy but Michael Gernoth's patch fixes the use of X Shared Memory. * Enable sound via SDL. Add build dependency on libsdl-mixer1.2-dev. Micropolis picks it up automatically if it's there and links against libsdl-mixer. Using SDL is much nicer than fork()ing for each sound file that should be played.

    2009-09-08 - Bruno "Fuddl" Kleinert <fuddl@debian.org> micropolis-activity (0.0.20071228-3) unstable; urgency=low * Apply latest patch from Michael Gernoth against the original source tree (zerfleddert.20080115.patch ist replaced by zerfleddert.20090908.patch) (Closes: #521194). Thanks for the work! * Refresh makefile.patch * Remove fix-crash.patch, because Micheal's patch addresses this problem * Add myself to Uploaders * Update to standards version 3.8.3. No changes were necessary * Add debian/REAMDE.source to document that we're using a patch management system * Install Micropolis.png so we have an icon for desktop menus * Fix installation of micropolis.menu. We have it, but dh_installmenu wasn't called * Add micropolis.desktop for desktop environments (Closes: #522330) * Hopefully improved the package description (Closes: #522271)
