ninvaders (0.1.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix overflow in lowest_ship array.  Closes: #597036
Thanks to Matt Chapman for the bug report and patch.
* Time for a packaging overhaul:
- Bump to dh compat level 7.
- Bump standards-version to 3.9.1; no specific changes required.
- Add the now-necessary misc:Depends.
- Strip DH_COMPAT from debian/rules; move it to debian/compat.
- Move menu entry to Games/Action, and quote all values.
- Use dh_prep instead of dh_clean -k.
- Don't ignore make clean errors in the clean target.
- Enhance the copyright file.

ninvaders (0.1.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Convert everything in the package to refer to the binary and related
materials (manpage) in the lowercase form (ninvaders).  Closes: #300508.
2003-07-13 - Matthew Palmer <>
ninvaders (0.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Standards version bumped to 3.6.0.
* Build-depends on debhelper 4.
2003-06-01 - Matthew Palmer <>
ninvaders (0.0.8-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Converted great honking multi-line strings into something which GCC 3.3
can (hopefully) handle.  Whoever thought that new feature was an
improvement should be hanged.  Closes: #195161.
* Changed strings.h to string.h, because strings.h is not what was wanted.
2002-09-22 - Matthew Palmer <>
ninvaders (0.0.8-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Bumped standards-version to 3.5.7.
2002-09-22 - Matthew Palmer <>
ninvaders (0.0.8-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Developed patch to make the bunkers disappear one line at a time.  Due
to the code, it will not be easily possible to make the bunkers
disappear as the aliens reach them, so this will have to do.
(Closes: #154330)

ninvaders (0.0.8-3) unstable; urgency=low

print the GPL based on the text in /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL.
Thanks to Pete de Zwart for the patch.
