FreeTDS is an implementation of the Tabular DataStream protocol, used for
connecting to MS SQL and Sybase servers over TCP/IP.
This package includes the static libraries and header files for TDS, which
you will need to develop applications that connect to MS SQL servers.  You
will also need this package if you are installing the Perl DBD::Sybase
module on your system using CPAN.

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
