This package contains development libraries and headers for the core Xapian
The Xapian search engine library is a highly adaptable toolkit which allows
developers to easily add advanced indexing and search facilities to their own
applications.  It implements the probabilistic model of information retrieval,
and provides facilities for performing ranked free-text searches, relevance
feedback, phrase searching, boolean searching, stemming, and simultaneous
update and searching.  It is highly scalable, and is capable of working with
collections containing hundreds of millions of documents.

xapian-core (1.2.22-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ Newer than 1.2.21_git68, so Closes: #808610
* Ack NMU; adjust changes so building backports should just work.
* Update list of tools in description of xapian-tools package.
* debian/ Drop "Suggests: libstdc++6-4.6-dbg" from our -dbg
package.  The package name is now out of date, and the work required
to keep updating it doesn't seem worth the small benefit.
* Add multi-arch support (Closes: #765820).  Thanks to Norman Rasmussen
and Wookey.
* Set AUTOMATED_TESTING=1 when running "make check" to skip timed tests
which can be flaky under uneven load.
* debian/copyright: Update copyright years for packaging.

xapian-core (1.2.21-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ Now provides pkg-config file, packaged in libxapian-dev.
* debian/rules: It's safe to assume dpkg >= 1.16.1 now, so simplify
use of dpkg-buildflags.
* Upstream releases are now bootstrapped with a newer libtool, so
dh_autoreconf is no longer needed.
