LibXC is a library of exchange-correlation (XC) functionals for
density-functional theory (DFT). The aim is to provide a portable, well
tested and reliable set of exchange and correlation functionals that
can be used by other codes. Supported XC functionals include:
* Local Density Approximation (LDA) functionals including Slater exchange,
and VWN, Perdew-Zunger or PADE correlation.
* Generalized Gradient Approximation (GGA) XC functionals including PBE,
PW91, BLYP, HCTH93, HCTH120, HCTH147, HCTH407, as well as B88 exchange and
LYP or P86 correlation.
* Hybrid XC functionals including B3LYP, PBE0, B97, X3LYP, BHANDH, HSE03
and HSE06.
* Meta-GGA XC functionals including TPSS, M05 and M06.

libxc (2.1.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream point release.
* The following functionals had bugs fixed:

cause Libxc to return wrong mixing parameters) 
* debian/upstream/metadata: Added ArXiv PDF eprint.
