OSDsh is a little program that overlays system information using
the XOSD library. OSDsh was originally based on osdd and provides
features like:
* It is able to display a clock.
* Shows the volume levels of the soundcard when changing.
* Tells you if you are on- or off-line, and the time you were connected.
* Shows the battery status and
* shows any message you want it to.

osdsh (0.7.0-10.3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Disable APM support.
APM support enabled was preventing osdsh to migrate to testing,
since apmd has been non-functional for ages and is RC-buggy.

osdsh (0.7.0-10.2) unstable; urgency=medium

osdsh (0.7.0-10) unstable; urgency=low
* osdctl still hangs while trying to write to osdsh fifo (Closes:
#432397). Thanks to Peter Colberg <peterco@gmx.net> for the patch!
* Fix "FTBFS with binutils-gold" by removing HTML encoded dash from Makefile
(WTF?) (Closes: #555874)
2007-06-17 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org>
osdsh (0.7.0-9) unstable; urgency=low
* fixes: osdsh displays part of previous messages (Closes: #301229)
* osdsh will not start if it detects that another instance is already
* osdctl will check that osdsh is running before trying to write to
fifo - prevents hangs, useful for scripts.
(All thanks to Roman Yepishev <roman.yepishev@gmail.com>)
* Bump standards version (no change)

osdsh (0.7.0-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Closes: #301207: osdsh does not work with option "-m"
+ fixed by using -rdynamic, thanks to Georg Drees for hunting that one
* Fixed typo, thanks again to Georg Drees
2005-03-24 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org>
osdsh (0.7.0-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Closes: #301210: osdsh option -p behaves flipped to documentation
* Closes: #301222: clarify osdctl options "-b" and "-l" in help screen
* Closes: #301207: osdsh does not work with option "-m"
Fixing this was a bad hack, possible breaking compatibility with (pretty
surely not existing) custom plugins. If it hits you, complain loud enough
for me to hear
I'll tackle the other, more serious bugs later. I am feeling kind of
upstream here :-)
