    2007-12-16 - Loic Minier <> mpeg2dec (0.4.1-3) unstable; urgency=low * Move mpeg2dec to Section: x11 instead of graphics to match overrides. * Bump up Debhelper compatibility level to 5; bump up debhelper build-dep to >= 5. * Add -Wl,-z,defs -Wl,--as-needed to LDFLAGS; build-dep on cdbs >= 0.4.41. * New patch, 62_drop-arch-opts, drop arch-specific CFLAGS detection in upstream configure as we want to use the gcc defaults to work on all machines which Debian will be installed on, and not use the buildds as references. * Add Homepage.

    2007-12-16 - Loic Minier <> mpeg2dec (0.4.1-2) unstable; urgency=low * Bump up Standards-Version to 3.7.3. - This new version allows PIC shared libraries on some arches; closes: #268603. * Wrap build-deps, deps, and uploaders. * Use ${binary:Version} instead of ${Source-Version}; build-dep on dpkg-dev >= 1.13.19. * Cleanup rules. * Retrieve the shared library package name (with SONAME) from control. * Move docs installation to debian/*.docs. * Drop useless libc6-dev | libc-dev dep. * Drop now useless README.Debian. * Use a wildcard to install the examples. * Install man pages via dh_install. * Pass --sourcedir=debian/tmp to dh_install. * Build-dep on gnome-pkg-tools (>= 0.7) and include * Build-dep on libxv-dev for xv output; thanks Jack Bates; closes: #390931. * Add watch file. * New patch, 66_add-dummy-handler-and-sanity-checks, fixes SEGV when playing; from MPlayer; thanks Lionel Debroux; closes: #407922. * Add Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser URLs. * New patch, 68_honor-cflags, don't reset CFLAGS in; closes: #403194. * Update patches 64_non-pic-on-i386-only and 68_honor-cflags to not patch configure and add a new patch, 70_autoconf, to update configure by running autoconf. * Unset DEB_OPT_FLAGS to leave it to upstream configure to select the opt level when noopt isn't in DEB_BUILD_OPTS; this allows -O3 to be selected instead of the cdbs default of -O2.

    2006-12-16 - Loic Minier <> mpeg2dec (0.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * Build against the default gcc version, we're too far away of 2.95 for the optimizations specific to this compiler to make sense anyway. * New upstream bugfix release; no API or ABI changes. - Drop patch 08_cleaner-bootstrap, merged upstream. - Drop patch 16_no-inline-setjmp, merged upstream. - Drop patch 32_amd64-cpuid, merged upstream. - Drop patch 48_altivec-detection, merged upstream. - Drop patch 80_rebootstrap, not needed anymore.
