LIBLINEAR is a library for learning linear classifiers for large scale
applications. It supports Support Vector Machines (SVM) with L2 and L1
loss, logistic regression, multi class classification and also Linear
Programming Machines (L1-regularized SVMs). Its computational complexity
scales linearly with the number of training examples making it one of
the fastest SVM solvers around. It also provides Python bindings.
This package contains the Python bindings.

liblinear (2.1.0+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop package libocas-dbg in favor of automatic dbgsym packages, as per
* d/patches (updated):
- Properly-build-shared-and-static-libraries-programs.
Filter out -pie, -fpie, and -fPIE when building the shared library so
that hardening=+all can be used
* d/rules:
- Add hardening=+all to DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS
- Improve version number parsing
* d/copyright:
- Bump copyright years
* d/control:
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8 (no changes needed)
- Switch to secure URIs in Vcs-* fields

liblinear (2.1.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Versioning scheme has been changed to better work with upstream's
* d/control:
- Build-Depend on python*-all, not python*-all-dev. This was a remnant from
when the package was still arch:any. Closes: #799231
- Switch Vcs-Browser from gitweb to cgit
* d/watch:
- Redo mangling: Convert upstream version to x.y.z format
* d/rules:
- Update get-orig-source for new x.y.z versioning scheme
* liblinear3:
- Drop symbol l2r_l2_svc_fun::subXv. No SONAME bump, as this symbol wasn't
visible outside of experimental
* d/patches (updated):
- Properly-build-shared-and-static-libraries-programs.patch
Makes use of the new versioning scheme
2015-09-05 - Christian Kastner <>
liblinear (2.01+dfsg-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* New upstream release. Closes: #780528
* The SONAME was bumped, so rename package liblinear1 to liblinear3
* d/liblinear3.symbols:
- Update for the new library version
* d/control:
- Switch Maintainer to my address
* d/watch:
- Update to look for tarball instead of zip
* d/rules:
- Simplify upstream version extraction/utilization
- Update get-orig-source target
- Use xz compression when repacking the upstream source
- Drop override_dh_makeshlibs which was only needed for lenny
* d/copyright:
- Bump copyright years
* d/gbp.conf:
- Update for xz compression
- Update for patches without numbers
* d/TODO:
- Drop, as no open TODOs remain
* d/liblinear-predict.1
- Update manpages
* d/patches:
- Drop patch numbers from .patch filenames
* d/patches (updated):
- Properly-build-shared-and-static-libraries-programs.patch
- Improve-option-parsing.patch
* d/patches (dropped):
- Documenation-fixes.patch
Included upstream

liblinear (1.8+dfsg-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add package python3-liblinear.
* debian/control:
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed)
- Drop XS-Testsuite. dpkg now recognizes the Testsuite header, and
dpkg-source automatically adds one when an autopkgtest suite is found
- Add Build-Depends for dh-python
- Add Build-Depends for python3-all-dev
- Add X-Python3-Version of 3.0
* debian/rules:
- Make dh also build with dh_python3
* debian/liblinear1.symbols: Mark symbol optimized away by GCC 5 as optional,
thereby fixing a FTBFS. Closes: #790248
* debian/copyright:
- Bump copyright years
2014-08-26 - Christian Kastner <>
liblinear (1.8+dfsg-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Migrate repo to Debian-Science at
* debian/control:
- Update Vcs-* URLs to point to new location
- Add XS-Testsuite for autopkgtest
- python-liblinear is arch:all, not arch:any. Thanks, Vincent Cheng
* debian/tests/*:
- Define an autopkgtest that runs the examples from the documentation
* debian/patches (updated):
- 0006-Improve-option-parsing
Fix wrong function call in float parsing (for epsilon value, etc.). As a
result of copy-pasta, strtol() was being used where strtof() was needed.
