    2016-03-28 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1:1.4.6.ds-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New 1.4 upstream release supporting v8 3.14. Thanks to Jerry Sievert! (The 1.5 series needs v8 4.x that isn't available in sid yet.) * Add "expected" files for PG versions <= 9.3.

    2016-03-18 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.5.0.ds-1) unstable; urgency=medium [ Christoph Berg ] * Ignore test failures for 9.0 and 9.1, they don't have the json data type. * Silence sequence generation notices in 9.2 in the test suite. * Project has moved to github. * Testsuite has problems, we are investigating. [ Martin Pitt ] * New upstream release 1.4.4. * Build for PostgreSQL 9.5. (Closes: #810637) * Drop backported patches. * debian/rules: Use "pg_buildext loop" to fix build with current p-common. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed). * debian/control: Drop obsolete XS-Testsuite: header. [ Evgeni Golov ] * New upstream release 1.5.0.

    2014-07-28 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.4.2.ds-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Pull patches from upstream to support PostgreSQL 9.4.

    2014-04-30 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.4.2.ds-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. * Add origtargz target to debian/rules. * Set team as maintainer, bump dh to 9.

    2013-09-13 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.4.0.ds-2) unstable; urgency=low [ Martin Pitt ] * debian/tests/control: Add missing postgresql-server-dev-all test dependency, so that installcheck can find pg_buildext. * debian/tests/installcheck: Create build-$version if it does not exist. [ Christoph Berg ] * Use plain pg_buildext; in 9.1/9.2/9.3 got fixed for srcdir. * Install docs in all module packages built. * debian/tests/control: Use allow-stderr (needs autopkgtest 2.3). * debian/pgversions: use "9.0"+ and B-D on pg-server-dev-all >= 148. * debian/ Section: database. * debian/watch: Mangle upstream version to remove .ds.

    2013-07-01 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.4.0.ds-1) unstable; urgency=low * Remove coffee-script.js and livescript.js from the source tarball (we don't have source code for these), and disable building the extensions.

    2013-06-28 - Christoph Berg <> plv8 (1.4.0-2) unstable; urgency=low * Manually loop over the versions to build/install instead of using pg_buildext because the buildsystem doesn't like "srcdir" in the environment. * Remove 8.4 from debian/pgversions as it fails on i386 (amd64 works). * Makefile: use pg_config --includedir-server so we get the version number for the right PostgreSQL version. * Run make installcheck using autopkgtest. (Needs postgresql-common >= 146). * Point Vcs headers at

    2013-05-03 - Evgeni Golov <> plv8 (1.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial upload. Closes: #706713 * This Debian package was created for, and donated to the Debian community.
