ColorCode is an advanced MasterMind code-breaking game clone. The
program accepts setting the number of slots (from 2 to 5), the number
of colors (from 2 to 10) and setting if colors might be repeated in
the secret code (doubles allowed or not).  The game has 5 built-in
levels, from level 1 (beginner: 2 slots and 2 colors, with doubles
allowed) to level 5 (hard: 5 slots and 10 colors, with doubles
allowed). ColorCode can make guesses in place of the user.

colorcode (0.8.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium

colorcode (0.7.2-3) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium

colorcode (0.7.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Port to version 5 of the Qt libraries in the form of a patch made by
Filippo Rusconi <>.
* debian/control: - change the maintainer data to Filippo Rusconi
- Standards-Version: 3.9.6
- qtbase5-dev (>= 5.3.2+dfsg-5)
* debian/rules:   - invoke the qmake program through the qtchooser utility
to ensure that Qt5 is used

colorcode (0.7.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release with new features and new translations.
2011-02-18 - Filippo Rusconi <>
colorcode (0.7.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix problem with rejected upload to the Debian servers: make a call to
lrelease in debian/rules so as to make all the .qm files from all the
.ts translation files. This way shipping modified .qm files is no more
required, although I have updated the french trans_fr.ts file.
* Bump up Standards-Version: 3.9.1.
2011-02-17 - Filippo Rusconi <>
colorcode (0.7.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
2010-02-17 - Filippo Rusconi <>
colorcode (0.6.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release:
- new french translation that I submitted upstream for inclusion in
the source tree;
- file colorcode32_xpm is now included in upstream;
* debian/control: remove Build-Depends on imagemagick as the
colorcode32_xpm is no more converted at build-tyme using 'convert';
* debian/rules: remove call 'rm -f debian/colorcode32.xpm' in the clean
target for the same reason as above;
* debian/rules: remove calls in the clean target as make distclean now
performs well the task, leaving the source tree effectively clean.
2010-02-14 - Filippo Rusconi <>
colorcode (0.6.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version.
* debian/rules: remove the renaming ColorCode=>colorcode because
colorcode is now the qmake target binary.
2010-02-08 - Filippo Rusconi <>
colorcode (0.5.5-3) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: remove the 'Build-Conflicts:
graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat' directive as the problem was fixed
in debian version 0.5.5-2.
