Orange is a tool and library for squeezing out juicy installable Microsoft
Cabinet Files from self-extracting installers for Microsoft Windows.
It currently supports the following kinds of installers:
* Early support for installers created by Installer VISE.
* Support for some installers created by Inno Setup.
* Early support for the installer used by TomTom products.
* InstallShield versions 5 and 6.
* Setup Factory versions 5 and 6.
* Some other installer (using a DLL called inflate.dll). This is used by
for example Macromedia Flash Player 6 for Pocket PC 2002.
* Microsoft Cabinets (also self-extracting) when you have Cabextract
* Zip archives (also self-extracting) when you have UnZip installed.
This package contains the binary which can be used to extract CAB files.

* debian/control:
+ Wrap Build-Depends.
+ Remove Build-Depends on non -dev packages.

the difference between the packages.

* debian/patches/orange-0.4-libtool-1.5.26.diff:
+ Add a new patch that contains relibtoolization with libtool 1.5.26
instead of 2.2, as the latter breaks --as-needed.
* debian/copyright:
+ Update copyright years.
+ Update to a newer machine-readable copyright proposal.
+ Use GPL-1+ instead of GPL-any, so lintian does not complain.
* debian/liborange-dev.install:
