BLT is a library of useful extensions for the Tcl language and the
popular Tk graphical toolkit.  It adds a vector and tree data type,
background execution and some debugging tools to Tcl, and provides
several new widgets for Tk, including graphs, bar-charts, trees, tabs,
splines and hyper-links, as well as a new geometry manager, drag &
drop support, and more.
This package contains the headers and libraries needed to extend or
embed BLT.

blt (2.5.3+dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Added the autotools-dev build dependency to replace the outdated
config.guess and config.sub by newer ones.
2015-11-25 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fixed the distclean target in which fixes FTBFS when build
twice in a row (closes: #791601).
* Fixed the override_dh_installdoc target in debian/rules to fix FTBFS
when dpkg-buildpackage -A is called for building the architecture-
independent packages only (closes: #805999).
* debian/patches/autoreconf.patch: fix autotools input for
compatibility with recent autoconf.  Thanks to Helmut Grohne
<> and Steve Langasek <>
(closes: #772590).
* debian/patches/pkgindex.patch: correct this patch to patch the source, not the generated configure script.
* debian/patches/install.patch: fix the distclean targets.
* debian/patches/*: remove patching of autogenerated configure
* Drop debian/rules override_dh_clean target, which gets it wrong.
2014-11-21 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Removed non-distributable files library/dd_protocols/* from the source
package (closes: #769814).
* Split out the tk8.6-blt2.5 package to reflect the changed library soname.
The 8.6 suffix is added because this package works only with Tcl/Tk 8.6.
Added breaks header with all packages dependent on blt which included
the previous library soname. This prevents partial upgrades
(closes: #751767).
* Bumped the standards version to 3.9.6.
2014-07-09 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Made blt-dev replace blt (<< 2.5) because the doc-base file is moved to
the former package from the latter.
* Added patch which fixes BLT stubs declaration.
* Added a few patches which eliminate GCC warnings about incompatible
pointer types, using possibly unitialized variables, unused variables
and casts to/from pointer from/to integer of different size. This
fixes a few segfaults in demos (but not all of them).
2014-07-06 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Added missing headers to bltNsUtil.c to fix build failures on 64bit
2014-07-04 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Restored forgotten call to dh_autotools-dev_updateconfig and explicitly
supplied --host option to the configure call to build the package on
kfreebsd-* architectures.
2014-07-04 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer Sergei Golovan (closes: #664092).
* New upstream and new upstream release.
* Reviewed and refreshed patches.
* Added a patch from the FreeBSD BLT port. It allows BLT to work when it's
built with Tcl/Tk 8.6 (closes: #753476).
* Moved HTML documentation from blt to blt-dev.
2014-06-13 - Matthias Klose <>
blt (2.4z-9) unstable; urgency=high
* QA upload.
* Build using Tcl/Tk 8.6.
2014-04-16 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.4z-8) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Fixed build with newer Tcl/Tk package which switched from shlibs to
symbols. (Closes: #724882)
