PLplot is relatively small, portable, freely distributable, and is rich
enough to satisfy most users.  It has a wide range of plot types including
line (linear, log), contour, 3D, fill, and almost 1000 characters
(including Greek and mathematical) in its extended font set.  The package
is designed to make it easy to quickly get graphical output; only a
handful of function calls is typically required.  For more advanced use,
virtually all aspects of plotting are configurable.
This package contains the pltcl program for interactive use of the Tcl/Tk
support for PLplot.

plplot (5.10.0+dfsg2-0.1ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Rebuild for ocaml ABI changes.
2015-11-01 - Steve Langasek <>
plplot (5.10.0+dfsg2-0.1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=low
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- Honor nocheck in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.
- Enable verbose builds and tests.
- Remove multiarch path in pkgconfig files.
* Dropped changes, included in Debian:
- Apply work-arounds from Debian #789619 to fix the ftbfs.
* Dropped changes:
- debian/libplplot-lua.files: don't diverge from Debian, we stopped trying
to build against lua5.2 in vivid (why?) so don't need to carry a delta
just to match on non-lua5.1 files.
- drop disabling of octave tests, which shouldn't run when the octave
frontend isn't configured.

plplot (5.10.0+dfsg2-0.1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Axel Beckert ]
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Repack upstream tarball to no more include non-free image lena.*.
+ Add patch to remove handling of lena images from multiple files.
+ Add according Files-Excluded header to debian/copyright.
+ Fixes lintian-reported error license-problem-non-free-img-lenna.
+ Closes: #794857
* debian/copyright: Add missing path element in URL in Source field.
Issue found by DUCK.
* Add build-dependency on dh-python to fix FTBFS in
[ Peter Michael Green ]
* Apply upstream patch to fix build with cmake 3.1 (Closes: #789619)
* Disable octave support as it's currently broken
+ see my post to bug #789619 for further info on the error
+ debian/rules and debian/control changes adapted from 5.10.0-0ubuntu5
package by Matthias Klose
+ also moved liboctave-dev build-depends to build-conflicts as
upstream buildsystem was trying to build octave stuff even without
debian/rules telling it to.
* Add tcl8.6 and tk8.6 to build-conflicts, having multiple versions of
tcl/tk arround seems to break the build.
