This package provides two programs to make user lookups on DNS
servers: dns_tree and dns_browse.
dns_tree is a command-line-based front-end to dig.  It replaces the
several dig invocations necessary to fetch a zone, and it formats the
output in a somewhat sensible hierarchical style (a tree).
dns_browse is a GUI front-end to dns_tree.  It allows point-and-click
DNS browsing and makes it easy to expand/compress hierarchies in one
or more DNS zones.

2013-10-31 - Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña <jfs@debian.org>
dns-browse (1.9-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix FTBFS with upcoming Tcl/Tk changes (Closes: #724979)
Replaced build dependency on tk8.5 by tk to fix FTBFS after Tcl/Tk +
packages droped alternatives for /usr/bin/wish.
(Thanks to Sergei Golovan for providing a patch for this)
* debian/control:
- Update maintainer name using proper UTF-8 encoding
- Remove useless ${perl:Depends}
* debian/rules:
- Replace dh_clean -k with dh_prep
* dns_tree: Meaningful error if the program fails because it cannot
do a zone transfer
* dns_browse: Adjust properly the size font (it looked huge previously)
2011-03-14 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>
dns-browse (1.9-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Add docbook-to-man to the Build-Dependencies (Closes: #618248)
2011-02-27 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>
dns-browse (1.9-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Move Homepage: to a debian/control header (Closes: #615288)
* Update dependency on wish, use 'tk8.5 | wish' instead of 'tk8.4 | wish'
* dns_browse:
- Add '-h' command line switch to print usage
- Catch the event when the window cannot be generated (when not running
out of an X display)
* dns_browse:
- '-h' now prints the usage just like '-?' does
* Add manpages for dns_browse and dns_tree (Closes: #196396).
* debian/copyright: convert to UTF-8
* Remove debian/README.Debian as the bug mentioned has been fixed years
2007-08-27 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>
dns-browse (1.9-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Depend on tk8.4 | wish, not tcl (Closes: #413657) 
* Use debhelper compatibility version 5
* Make the Makefile.in just dump install the scripts not add the perl/wish 
header to the scripts. Fix the scripts so that they have a proper header
* Upgrade to latest policy (no changes needed)
2004-07-30 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
dns-browse (1.9-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Removed obsolete tk8.0 version from Depends: and added tcl8.4
instead as requeted by Chris Waters (tcl/tk maintainer). 
(Closes: #262237)
2003-06-06 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
dns-browse (1.9-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Added notice in README.Debian, this package might not work properly
with latest bind's 9 dnsutils (version 9.2 at the time of writing).
If this bug is not fixed I might need to ask the ftp masters to 
remove the package from the archive. 
* Modified dns_tree to use the multilines options when asking
for SOA information. This is necessary since dig version 9.2 (unlike 9.1)
does not use multilines unless explicitly requested to do so.
(Closes: #161441)
* Added debug output to dns_tree in order to check what it is really
executing (more information than verbose)
* Removed calls to old check_root and check_dir and use debhelper
fully now
* Added an install target in debian/rules
* Fixed lintian errors:
- debian/copyright redirects to /usr/share/common-licenses
- added tk8.0 dependancies (it works with tk4.0 but since
it's not in the archive anymore I'm taking the lowest
version which provides wish in unstable) as well as 
virtual packaging
- removed '.' from the Description: line
2003-06-01 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
dns-browse (1.9-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Added Build-Depends (Closes: #195295)
* Moved from non-US to net section
* Added Homepage to debian/control
* Removed call to dh_undocumented
2002-05-14 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
dns-browse (1.9-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream the release (includes the bug fixed in previous one)
* Added a check for the $HOME environment just in case
