10. By Peter Pearse on 2011-04-20

Drop tests when cross building.

9. By Jonathan Nieder on 2010-11-11

* Upload to unstable.
* liblzma2, liblzma-dev, xz-lzma: Install release notes.
* debian/symbols: Bump the minimal versions for lzma_index_encoder,
  lzma_index_decoder to the version in which they gained LZMA_FINISH
* xz-utils/README.Debian: Document differences from upstream ABI.
* debian/changelog.upstream.sh: Avoid empty changelog entries when
  multiple Debian revisions match an upstream tag.

8. By Jonathan Nieder on 2010-08-10

* New upstream snapshot, taken from upstream commit d5653ba8a.
  - xz: The memory usage limiter is now disabled by default.
  - xz: Support for an XZ_DEFAULTS environment variable was added.
    It contains user-specific default settings, such as memory usage
    limits, and can be overridden by the command line and XZ_OPT.
  - xz: The new --memlimit-compress and --memlimit-decompress
    options allow the memory usage limit to be set separately for
    compression and decompression. A new --memlimit alias has been
    added for the existing --memory option.
  - xz: The --info-memory option (with or without --robot) now prints
    how much RAM is installed in addition to the compression and
    decompression memory limits.
* liblzma-doc: Simplify package description.
* debian/control: Build-Depends: autopoint | gettext (<< 0.18-1),
  autopoint | cvs instead of autopoint, to help with backporting.
  Thanks to Thorsten Glaser for a report.

7. By Jonathan Nieder on 2010-05-27

* New upstream snapshot, taken from upstream commit a334348dc.
  - Show both elapsed time and estimated remaining time in xz -v.
    Thanks to Trent W. Buck for the idea. Closes: #574583.
  - liblzma: Remove the Subblock filter from the public API
    (the ABI is unchanged).
* liblzma-dev.NEWS: Update.
* xz-utils: Update Czech translation.
* Change priority of xz-utils and liblzma2 to required and
  xzdec to extra.

6. By Jonathan Nieder on 2010-03-09

* New upstream snapshot, taken from upstream commit f4b2b526.
  - liblzma: The lzma_stream_init() function was not correctly
    initializing the internal allow_buffer_error flag. As a result,
    ever since 4.999.9beta-1 in rare circumstances when decompressing
    LZMA files, the xz tool would produce spurious "Unexpected end
    of input" failures (Gentoo bug 305591).
  - The default memory usage limit on low-memory systems has been
* debian/copyright: Clarify.

5. By Jonathan Nieder on 2009-11-16

* New upstream snapshot, taken from upstream commit d315ca4.
   + liblzma: add some new functions:
      - lzma_filters_copy() to copy a filter chain;
      - lzma_filters_update() to change compression options mid-stream;
      - lzma_physmem() to retrieve the total quantity of installed RAM.
   + Fix a design error in liblzma API.
      - Stop requiring caller to maintain filter chain during
        compression. The library used to read it for new compression
        options. Callers that need to change options mid-stream should
        use lzma_filters_update() instead.
      - Remove 'persistent' member from struct lzma_options_lzma.
   + xz: add --robot --info-memory options, for front-ends to use to
     read the memory usage limit.
* liblzma: bump soname; add README.Debian explaining why soname
  differs from upstream.
* Use source format 3.0 (quilt).
* Update and clarify copyright file.

4. By Jonathan Nieder on 2009-11-01

* New upstream snapshot, taken from upstream commit 78e92c1.
* Drop xzmore.1 patch, applied upstream.
* debian/rules: Disable assembler optimizations on hurd. (Closes: #553331)
* debian/control: Clarify binary package descriptions. Thanks to
  Justin B Rye and Ben Finney for the text.
* debian/rules get-orig-source: Use commit date (instead of last patch
  date) to name snapshots.

3. By Matthias Klose on 2009-10-06

Fix a data corruption in the compression code. LP: #434740.

2. By Scott Kitterman on 2009-07-21

[ Jonathan Nieder ]
* Initial package for Debian. (Closes: #518803)
   + debian/rules:
      - add minimal rules file (using Debhelper 7), a control file
        describing the binary packages, and an appropriate compat file.
      - use configure --enable-dynamic; use up-to-date config.guess and
        config.sub files.
      - do not run automake and so on on autobuilders. Instead, we can
        run them ourselves when we build the source package.
   + debian/README.source:
      - add informations about the packaging GIT repository.
* Add liblzma-doc package with Doxygen-generated API docs.

[ Mohammed Adnène Trojette ]
* Prepare for upload to experimental.

[ Scott Kitterman ]
* Grab Debian package from people.debian.org since it's in Debian New still
* Rename tarball to make the package non-native

1. By Scott Kitterman on 2009-07-21
