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.

* debian/avahi-daemon-check-dns.sh: On some hardware, the 'host'
command gets stuck and does not timeout as it should leaving this script
and boot-up hanging indefinitely. Launch host with 'timeout' to kill it
after 5 seconds in these cases as a workaround. (LP: #1752411)

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.

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)
