suckless-tools (42-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- Update dmenu to version 4.6
- Update slock to version 1.3
* Update d/watch file to use the version 4 format.
The new version=4 enables handling of multiple upstream tarball
(MUT) packages.
* Simplify get-orig-source rule.
Let the new version 4 format of d/watch do the hard work.
* Add libxrandr-dev to build dependencies.
The new version of slock needs to be linked against the Xrandr library
in order to resize the cover window when new screens are added.
* Pass create-empty-orig to d/source/local-options
* Update d/patches to apply cleanly.
Also, rename the patch files in order to not be prefixed with a number.
* Update d/copyright file.
Bump copyright years for slock/* and debian/* files.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7, no changes needed
* Remove d/manpages/slock.1.
A manpage for slock is now provided by upstream.
* d/patches: Remove useless dependency against Xext library
* Enable all hardening options.
Fix hardening-no-pie and hardening-no-bindnow lintian messages.
* Do not include '/usr/share/dpkg/' in d/rules.
Since we are using debhelper v9 format, there is no need to include the
'' or export the buildflags because they are automatically
passed during calls to dh_auto_* programs.
* Use 'https://' instead of 'git://' in Vcs-Git field.
Fix vcs-field-uses-insecure-uri lintian warning.
