[ Darren Salt ]
* Updated debconf templates & debian/control.		(Closes: #452496)
Reviewed by the debian-l10n-english team as part of the Smith review
project (except that I've lightly tweaked the last sentence of the
package description).

- Basque						(Closes: #453297)
- Galician						(Closes: #453330)

* Demote the X dependencies to Recommends.		(Closes: #28471)
Use a wrapper for xplaymidi to avoid run-time linkage errors.
(Doable since recommended packages are installed by default.)
* Bumped standards version to 3.7.3; no changes needed.

playmidi (2.4debian-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Use debian/compat instead of DH_COMPAT, but stick with level 4 for now.
* Updated standards version to 3.7.2.
* Templates converted to UTF-8.
* Fixed problems with terminal resize (ncurses interface) - now no longer
* Use intptr_t for pointer casting.

It was removed from Linux between 2.6.21 & 2.6.22.	(Closes: #436329)
* Added Dutch debconf translation.			(Closes: #414771)
* Added Portuguese debconf translation.		(Closes: #434062)
* Fixed the --help option.				(Closes: #418819)

2006-03-27 - Darren Salt <>
