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.

* debian/patches/01-cmake-multiarch.diff: update to also fix
LIBFTDI_USE_FILE in multiarch systems. Thanks to Jochen Sprickerhof
for the patch (closes: #832617).
* debian/rules: enable the C++ library even for the python builds so
that LibFTDI1Config.cmake contains both LIBFTDI_PYTHON_MODULE_PATH
and LIBFTDIPP* entries.

* New upstream version.
* Stop building -dbg packages, please use the -dbgsym packages instead.
* Move the documentation from libftdi1-dev to libftdi1-doc as
recommended by recent policy versions.

* 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.

libftdi1 (1.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* 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).

libftdi1 (1.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix 01-cmake-multiarch.diff to correctly generate libftdi1.pc.

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