freetds (0.91-6.1build1) xenial; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild for gnutls transition.
2015-07-26 - Andreas Metzler <>
freetds (0.91-6.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Use gnutls_priority_set_direct with a priority string of NORMAL:%COMPAT
instead of deprecated gnutls_{cipher,kx,...}_set_priority functions. This
uses the same priority string as 7ca9321ff440814581a8ec87984f7d76f8cc105e
from upstream GIT, except for not disabling SSL3.0 since Debian's GnuTLS
does not enable SSL3 by default. Closes: #782818
2014-05-08 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Build against libgnutls28, now that license compatibility issues
with GPLv2-only software have been resolved.  This includes patching
the upstream source to not look for gcrypt, which is no longer needed.
Thanks to Dimitri Ledkov <> for the patch.
Closes: #747449.
2013-09-11 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Add Kerberos support.  LP: #1223567.
* Stop overriding CPPFLAGS in debian/rules, giving us full proper
hardening support.  Closes: #665268.
* src/odbc/odbc.c: cherry-pick upstream fix for a segfault due to an
uninitialized value.  Thanks to Lionel Elie Mamane <>
for the fix.  Closes: #650422.
* Allow parallel builds.  Closes: #650421.
* Drop manual autotools patching for dh-autoreconf, fixing builds on
x32 et al.  Closes: #699069.
* Properly bump the build-dep on debhelper to 9.
* Bump to Standards-Version 3.9.4, no changes required.
* Convert copyright file to copyright-format 1.0.
* src/apps/bsqldb.c, src/apps/bsqlodbc.c: fix wrong getopt() option
strings so that arguments to -d are parsed correctly.
Closes: #715697, #715698.
* src/apps/datacopy.c: handle a lack of login/password information
without segfaulting.  Closes: #715785.
2013-05-26 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Version the breaks: on libiodbc2 now that a fixed version is available
in unstable.
2013-04-03 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-3) unstable; urgency=low
* check for libgcrypt in addition to libgnutls, since we
use it directly and will need to link to it in future versions of gcc.
Thanks to Logan Rosen <> for reporting.  Closes: #704572.
* Also, build-depend explicitly on libgcrypt-dev.
2012-10-12 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Don't both breaks and recommends libiodbc2, this confuses apt.
Closes: #645726.
2011-11-14 - Steve Langasek <>
freetds (0.91-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.  Closes: #852069, LP: #887374.
- Built with new libtool, so should be compatible with binutils-gold.
Closes: #558548.
- Includes fix for upstream corruption seen with Hebrew strings.
Closes: #500451.
- drop patch to src/tds/locale.c; upstream seems to now support fairly
complete autodetection of the client locale.
- update symbols files for two new symbols.
* Pass -DDBLIB_UNIMPLEMENTED=1 so we get a full set of symbols in
libsybdb, even if some functions are not yet implemented.
* Switch to using dpkg-buildflags for hardening.
* src/apps/bsqldb.c: fix a build failure with -Werror=format-security.
* Build-depend on libgnutls-dev for TLS support.  LP: #406468.
* Build-depend on libreadline-dev, which makes freetds-bin a bit more
