mat2 (0.8.0-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Upload to unstable. This adds a new binary package 'mat' which handles
the transition from mat to mat2. (Closes: #910493)

mat2 (0.8.0-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* d/control:
- Handle transition from mat to mat2: declare that mat2 breaks and
replaces mat << 0.8.0-2~, and ship a transitional package mat which
pulls in mat2. This upload targets experimental, to not interrupt the
ongoing migration process of 0.8.0-1.
For more details and discussion, see #910493.

mat2 (0.8.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* d/control:
- Recommend python-nautilus to make use of the Nautilus extension.
- Sort supported file formats in the description alphabetically.
- Mention new support for .epub files in the description.
* d/mat2.install:
- Install the Nautilus extension. (Closes: #910491)
* d/patches:
- Add patch to make the Nautilus extension work with Python 2.7, as
python-nautilus still builds against it in Debian buster. This is an
important step to handle the transition from mat to mat2.
Thanks a lot for input, comments and review to intrigeri, Daniel Kahn
Gillmor, Julien Voisin and Jonas Meurer!
