2017-03-08 - Timo Aaltonen <tjaalton@debian.org>
xserver-xorg-video-dummy (1:0.3.8-1build1) zesty; urgency=medium
* Rebuild against new xserver.
2016-12-15 - Emilio Pozuelo Monfort <pochu@debian.org>
xserver-xorg-video-dummy (1:0.3.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
- Uses dixChangeWindowProperty instead of ChangeWindowProperty,
as the latter is gone in the xserver. Closes: #845728.
* Bump debhelper compat to 10.
- Let debhelper call autoreconf for us.
- Set libdir to /usr/lib, which is where the xserver expects the drivers.
* Don't pass --disable-silent-rules, debhelper does that for a while.
* debian/watch: check upstream signatures with...
* debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: ...the upstream keys.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8.
* Switch URLs to https.

2012-02-20 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org>
xserver-xorg-video-dummy (1:0.3.5-2) unstable; urgency=high
* Merge upstream master up to 02918fd534:
- Use USE_DGA rather than XFreeXDGA in preprocessor checks, the
former is set through ./configure while the latter comes from
the server. Meaning if DGA is enabled in the server and is
disabled in the driver, crashes happen (#660574).
* Set urgency to “high” for the RC bug fix.

* Disable DGA support, it has been dead for a while.
2011-02-05 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org>
xserver-xorg-video-dummy (1:0.3.4-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to dh:
- Use debhelper 8.
- Use dh-autoreconf.
- Bump xserver-xorg-dev build-dep for dh_xsf_substvars and xsf
debhelper sequence.
