Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery. It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to print to, files to look at and people to talk to. This package contains utility modules to talk to Avahi with Python easier.

    2015-11-24 - Martin Pitt <> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium * Put back libavahi-common3-udeb and libavahi-core7-udeb, they are being used by maas-enlist-udeb.

    2015-11-24 - Martin Pitt <> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes: - Add debian/avahi-daemon.upstart, debian/avahi-dnsconfd.upstart, debian/avahi-cups-reload.upstart * Dropped Ubuntu changes: - debian/control: Add versioned dependency on the dbus that satisfies our upstart job dependency. This happened before precise already. - Add udebs corresponding to libavahi-common3 and libavahi-core7, so that we can use them for Eucalyptus integration in the installer. Eucalyptus is long gone, and these udebs haven't been used in a long time. - d/p/skip-nproc-in-container.patch: Detect whether we are running in a container, and do not set rlimit_nproc if so. Current LXC does not create /run/container_type any more so the patch is a no-op. It's also not necessary any more as avahi does not fail if it cannot set the rlimit. * Drop obsolete dh_installinit --upstart-only option. (LP: #1519228)

    2015-11-04 - Laurent Bigonville <> avahi (0.6.32~rc+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Team upload. * New upstream release - Don't log warnings about invalid packets, commonly triggered by Windows 10 systems (Closes: #639163) - Drop debian/patches/01_avahi-daemon.conf.patch, d/p/avahi-core-reserve-space-for-record-data-when-size-estimate.patch, d/p/suse-patch-gtk-box.patch, d/p/no-deprecations.patch, d/p/so_reuseport-may-not-exist-in-running-kernel.patch, merged upstream. * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no further changes) * debian/rules: Ask dh_autoreconf to run the script * debian/control: Add dh-python to the build-dependencies

    2015-04-13 - Michael Biebl <> avahi (0.6.31-5) unstable; urgency=medium [ Andreas Henriksson ] * Recommend iproute2 instead of transitional package iproute. * Update avahi-daemon support scripts to use iproute2 tools if available with a fallback to net-tools and graceful degradation if neither is installed. (Closes: #762326) [ Michael Biebl ] * Don't run the avahi-autoipd ifupdown hook scripts if the package has been removed but not purged. (Closes: #780872) * Use --restart-after-upgrade for avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd to minimise downtime and avoid avahi-daemon being triggered via socket or D-Bus activation during upgrades. (Closes: #768620) * Mask avahi-daemon.service on remove to avoid the stop request being cancelled via socket or D-Bus activation.

    2014-11-17 - Brian Murray <> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu4) vivid; urgency=medium * No change rebuild to get debug symbols on all architectures.

    2014-08-01 - Martin Pitt <> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu3) utopic; urgency=medium * Drop upstart dependency. We ship init scripts for sysv, upstart, and systemd now. (LP: #1351306)

    2014-05-28 - Dimitri John Ledkov <> avahi (0.6.31-4ubuntu2) utopic; urgency=high * No change rebuild against new dh_installinit, to call update-rc.d at postinst.
