This library could talk to FTDI's FT232BM, FT245BM, FT2232C, FT2232D, FT245R,
FT232H and FT230X type USB chips from userspace. It uses libusb 1.0 to
communicate with the chips.
Functionalities include the possibility to use the chips in standard
mode, in bitbang mode, and to read or write the serial EEPROM.
This package provides the ftdi1 module on the Python 2 module path. It
is complemented by python3-ftdi1.

* Rename libftdipp1-2 into libftdipp1-2v5 for the GCC 5 ABI transition.
* Build-depends on g++ (>= 4:5.2) and boost (>= 1.58).
* Force C++ standard to c++11 to prepare for the GCC 6 transition.

* Upstream uses SWIG + CMake to build the Python bindings, and TTBOMK
this gives no easy way to install a Python shared library whose name
includes the ABI. To fix the installation with multiple Python
versions, rename the shared library to include the ABI just after
calling "make install" (closes: #793830).

* New package based on libftdi providing a new upstream version with
an incompatible API (closes: #706301, #766582, #781545).
