  - CVE-2011-2895

23. By Julien Cristau on 2009-12-02

* New upstream release.
* Bump xutils-dev build-dep for new util-macros.
* Build documentation, install it in libxfont-dev.
* Enable support for bzip2 compressed bitmap fonts.
* Don't use LDFLAGS from the environment. Ubuntu sets that to
  -Bsymbolic-functions, which breaks libXfont's weak symbols usage.

22. By StefanPotyra on 2009-05-09

* Rebase to unstable, remaining change:
  + debian/rules: unset LDFLAGS to not be hit by -Bsymbolic-functions,
    as libxfont contains weak symbols which are meant to be overriden
    (cf. LP #226156).

21. By StefanPotyra on 2008-08-23

Merge from unstable (LP: #260727), remaining change:
debian/rules: explicitely unset LDFLAGS in order to avoid that
"-Bsymbolic-functions" will get set: libxfont contains a number
of weak symbols, which are meant to be overridden (cf. LP 226156).

20. By StefanPotyra on 2008-05-13

* debian/rules: Explicetly use empty LDFLAGS, closes LP: #226156.
* debian/control: Mangle Maintainer field according to spec.

19. By Julien Cristau on 2008-03-07

* New upstream release
* Drop CVE-2008-0006.diff, included upstream.

18. By Julien Cristau on 2008-01-17

* High urgency upload for security fix.
* Fix a buffer overflow in the PCF font parser (CVE-2008-0006).
* debian/control updates
  + add myself to Uploaders, and remove Branden and Fabio with their
  + s/^XS-Vcs/Vcs/
  + bump Standards-Version to 3.7.3 (no changes)
  + libxfont1 is Section: libs
  + libxfont-dev and libxfont1-dbg are Section: libdevel
