LÖVE was created to be a user-friendly engine in which simple (or
complicated) games could be made without having extensive knowledge
of system or graphics functions and without having to dedicate time
towards developing the same engine features time and time again.
Developed with cross-platform implementation in mind, it utilizes the
latest open source libraries to deliver a similar game experience,
independent of operating system. By relying on the Lua scripting language
for game-specific programming, it allows even the novice game creator to
quickly and efficiently develop an idea into a fully working game.

love (11.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Remove luajit dependency restriction on hurd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64.
* Restore check for lua implementation for architectures without luajit.
* Drop big-endian architectures as the hash module requires little-endian.
* Enable also non-release little-endian architectures.
* Drop unused build dependencies.

love (11.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Reiner Herrmann, Alexandre Detiste ]
* Team upload.
* New upstream version 11.1. (Closes: #830876, #815170))
- The package builds from source again. (Closes: #873329)
* Fix FTCBFS by switching to dh sequencer. (Closes: #894041)
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.2.0
* Drop scripts_source.patch; included in upstream tarball
* Remove LDADD section from src/ patch.
It was no longer building as it couldn't find a target '.libs/liblove.a'.
* Convert to dh-based build
* Disable -doc package for now.
It's currently unclear to me where the -doc and -demos tarball
is coming from.
* Since the -doc package is disabled and the patch for upstream's manpage was
accepted, this (Closes: #892917)
* The mimelnk files are no longer installed. (Closes: #875525)
* Remove unused lintian-override
* Install files only via dh_install; otherwise it installs static library too
* Add build dependency libtheora-dev
[ Markus Koschany ]
* Remove autoconf and automake from B-D because compat 11 provides them
2016-08-03 - Markus Koschany <>
love (0.9.1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Drop README.source because source format 3.0 uses quilt by default.
* wrap-and-sort -sab.
* Use compat level 9 and require debhelper >= 9.
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 3.9.8.
* Use secure Vcs-Browser URL.
* Drop love-dbg binary package and use the automatic -dbgsym package instead.
* Remove spurious libmng-dev build-dependency.
Thanks to Moritz Muehlenhoff for the report. (Closes: #757171)
* Build demos in arch-indep target. (Closes: #806657)
* Use default xz compression for the debian tarball.
* Fix Lintian warnings in debian/copyright.
* debian/rules: Fix Lintian error privacy-breach-google-plus.

love (0.9.1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Add Breaks+Replaces relation against older versions of love to fix
wheezy -> jessie upgrades. (Closes: #768206)
2014-04-28 - Miriam Ruiz <>
love (0.9.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Don't use luajit for architectures where it is not supported:
hurd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !s390x
* Moved demos to love-doc package to make love package lighter

love (0.9.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Miriam Ruiz ]
* New upstream release
+ 0.9.1's API is fully backward compatible with existing 0.9.0 games.
+ Most of the changes are bug fixes, internal code improvements, and
+ some API additions and updates to flesh out LÖVE's features,
+ especially in the module.
+ See
+ See
* Refreshed patches
* Temporarily removed the patches to use Glee from system, as Glee 5.5 is
needed for the program to compile.
