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 the Avahi Daemon which represents your machine
on the network and allows other applications to publish and resolve
mDNS/DNS-SD records.

avahi (0.7-3ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=low
* local-only-services-support.patch: Added support for advertising
local-only services on the loopback ("lo", "localhost") device. This
is especially needed for making CUPS and cups-browsed auto-discover
IPP-over-USB printers using ippusbxd (LP: #1736757, Upstream issue #125).

avahi (0.7-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Brown paper bag release.
* Don't hard-code architecture in gir1.2-avahi-0.6.install.
Otherwise we FTBFS on everything but amd64.
2017-09-17 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
avahi (0.7-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop shlibs files.
Those are no longer necessary as all libraries provide symbols files
* Enable gobject introspection support.
The typelib files for libavahi-gobject are split into a new package
named gir1.2-avahi-0.6.
* Handle socket activation in avahi-daemon-check-dns.sh when using systemd.
To completely stop avahi-daemon under systemd the avahi-daemon.socket
unit needs to be stopped as well. (Closes: #847456)

avahi (0.7-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Andreas Henriksson ]
* New upstream version 0.7
- All default rlimits have been removed from avahi-daemon.conf.
Those were causing crashes due to OOM and failure to start in LXC
containers. (Closes: #841926, #856311)
* Drop d/p/0001-avahi-autoipd-fix-dhclient-hooks-to-check-for-avahi-.patch
- now included in upstream release.
* Remove (Gtk+ 2.x) libavahi-ui{0,-dev} packages (Closes: #870785)
* Add patch to also install manpages when not building gtk2
- debian/patches/fix-manpage-install-conditions.patch
* Remove libavahi-qt4-{1,dev} packages (Closes: #874832)
* Stop shipping /usr/share/avahi/service-types
* Add one new symbol to libavahi-gobject0.symbols
[ Michael Biebl ]
* Update (build-)dependencies for the switch from pygtk2 to pygobject/gtk3
* Setup gbp pq to use patches without patch numbers
* Add missing bshell.1 symlink (Closes: #655190)
* Fix reference to avahi-autoipd.action(8) in avahi-autoipd(8)
(Closes: #840833)
* Do not install upstream ChangeLog file.
It is autogenerated by gettexize and doesn't contain any useful
information. It also breaks multi-arch and reproducibility.
For user visible changes please consult the NEWS file instead.
(Closes: #804134)
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.0
* Bump debhelper compat level to 10
* Explicitly disable introspection support.
We don't provide any introspection packages yet (but might in the
future). For the time being use --disable-introspection to get more
reliable build results.
* Switch to dh_missing and abort on uninstalled files
* Use /usr/share/dpkg/architecture.mk include to get DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS
