Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery. It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to print to, files to look at and people to talk to. This package contains several utilities that allow you to interact with the Avahi daemon, including publish, browsing and discovering services.

    2015-11-24 - Martin Pitt <martin.pitt@ubuntu.com> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium * Put back libavahi-common3-udeb and libavahi-core7-udeb, they are being used by maas-enlist-udeb.

    2015-11-24 - Martin Pitt <martin.pitt@ubuntu.com> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes: - Add debian/avahi-daemon.upstart, debian/avahi-dnsconfd.upstart, debian/avahi-cups-reload.upstart * Dropped Ubuntu changes: - debian/control: Add versioned dependency on the dbus that satisfies our upstart job dependency. This happened before precise already. - Add udebs corresponding to libavahi-common3 and libavahi-core7, so that we can use them for Eucalyptus integration in the installer. Eucalyptus is long gone, and these udebs haven't been used in a long time. - d/p/skip-nproc-in-container.patch: Detect whether we are running in a container, and do not set rlimit_nproc if so. Current LXC does not create /run/container_type any more so the patch is a no-op. It's also not necessary any more as avahi does not fail if it cannot set the rlimit. * Drop obsolete dh_installinit --upstart-only option. (LP: #1519228)

    2015-11-04 - Laurent Bigonville <bigon@debian.org> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Team upload. * New upstream release - Don't log warnings about invalid packets, commonly triggered by Windows 10 systems (Closes: #639163) - Drop debian/patches/01_avahi-daemon.conf.patch, d/p/avahi-core-reserve-space-for-record-data-when-size-estimate.patch, d/p/suse-patch-gtk-box.patch, d/p/no-deprecations.patch, d/p/so_reuseport-may-not-exist-in-running-kernel.patch, merged upstream. * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no further changes) * debian/rules: Ask dh_autoreconf to run the autogen.sh script * debian/control: Add dh-python to the build-dependencies

    2015-04-13 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org> avahi (0.6.31-5) unstable; urgency=medium [ Andreas Henriksson ] * Recommend iproute2 instead of transitional package iproute. * Update avahi-daemon support scripts to use iproute2 tools if available with a fallback to net-tools and graceful degradation if neither is installed. (Closes: #762326) [ Michael Biebl ] * Don't run the avahi-autoipd ifupdown hook scripts if the package has been removed but not purged. (Closes: #780872) * Use --restart-after-upgrade for avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd to minimise downtime and avoid avahi-daemon being triggered via socket or D-Bus activation during upgrades. (Closes: #768620) * Mask avahi-daemon.service on remove to avoid the stop request being cancelled via socket or D-Bus activation.

    2014-11-17 - Brian Murray <brian@ubuntu.com> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu4) vivid; urgency=medium * No change rebuild to get debug symbols on all architectures.

    2014-08-01 - Martin Pitt <martin.pitt@ubuntu.com> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu3) utopic; urgency=medium * Drop upstart dependency. We ship init scripts for sysv, upstart, and systemd now. (LP: #1351306)

    2014-05-28 - Dimitri John Ledkov <xnox@ubuntu.com> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu2) utopic; urgency=high * No change rebuild against new dh_installinit, to call update-rc.d at postinst.
