pfstools is a set of command line (and two GUI) programs for reading,
writing, manipulating and viewing high-dynamic range (HDR) images and video
frames. All programs in this package exchange data using a simple generic
file format (pfs) for HDR data. It is an attempt to integrate existing file
formats by providing a simple data format that can be used to exchange data
between applications.
The concept of pfstools is similar to netpbm for low-dynamic range images.

pfstools (1.8.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules:
- Split 'build' target into 'build-arch' and 'build-indep'.
- Use dpkg-buildflags to get build flags.
* debian/control:
- Updated standards-version to 3.9.3.
* debian/copyright:
- Updated for upstream version 1.8.5.
* debian/patches/:
- Added Wformat-security.dpatch, fixing some issues identified by
2012-06-03 - S├ębastien Villemot <>
pfstools (1.8.5-0.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
[ S├ębastien Villemot ]
* New upstream release, build-depend on Qt4 instead of Qt3 (Closes: #604368)
* gcc-4.4.dpatch: remove patch, applied upstream
* Convert to format 3.0 (quilt) and drop dpatch, because otherwise Lintian
produces an error (dpatch is obsolete)
[ Rafael Laboissiere ]
* debian/control:
- Build-depend on liboctave-dev, such that the package builds with
Octave 3.6 (Closes: #666959)
- Depend simply on octave, do not use the obsolete ${octave:Depends}
substitution variable anymore
* debian/rules:
- Use directly the octave-config script in order to get the
installation path for the *.oct and *.m files
- Do not invoke the obsolete script octave-depends
* debian/octave-pfstools.install: Adjust for the multiarch path, which
contains the architecture triplet now

pfstools (1.8.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ Thomas Weber ]
* Switch to octave3.2 (Closes: #567875).
[ Sebastian Harl ]
* debian/control:
- Updated standards-version to 3.8.4 -- no changes.
- Let libpfs-dev depend on libpfs (= ${binary:Version}) (rather than a
weak dependency on >= ${source:Version}).
- Let all packages depend on ${misc:Depends}.
* Added debian/README.source:
- The file includes a pointer to /usr/share/doc/dpatch/README.source.gz.
2009-12-20 - Stefano Zacchiroli <>
pfstools (1.8.1-1.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add patch gcc-4.4.dpatch, to fix FTBFS w/ gcc 4.4, rationale; patch
from Ubuntu (with some extra comments/rationale by me).
(Closes: #554494)
2009-06-08 - Sebastian Harl <>
pfstools (1.8.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* debian/patches:
- Removed dcraw-m.dpatch - merged upstream.
- Removed octave3.0.dpatch - merged upstream.
- Added octave-nargin.dpatch - this patch lets octave scripts use the
variable nargin instead of length(argv); the latter does not work
reliably when no command line arguments have been specified.
- Added octave-signal.dpatch - this patch lets pfsstat bail out with an
error message if gausswin() is not available, telling the user to
install octave-signal.
* Removed debian/pfsglview.1 - included upstream.
* debian/control:
- Added libmagick++-dev as an option to the libmagick++9-dev build
- Updated Standards-Version to 3.8.1 - no changes.
- Changed section of package 'pfstools-dbg' to the newly added section
- Build-depend on texlive-latex-base rather than the obsolete tetex-bin.
- Updated homepage.
- Let pfstools recommend octave-signal which is required by pfsstat.
* debian/pfsglview.install:
- Install the pfsglview.1 manpage.
* debian/pfstools.install:
- Install usr/share/pfstools/hdrhtml_*.
* debian/rules:
- Use dh_install's --fail-missing instead of --list-missing.
- Explicitly disable all features that are not available to ensure
consistent builds - currently this is matlab, jpeghdr and gdal.
- Pass CXXFLAGS as arguments to configure instead of setting them in the
environment - this is the recommended way.
* debian/control, debian/rules:
- Use ${octave:Depends} and octave3.0-depends instead of explicitly
depending on octave3.0.
