Xiphos is a Bible study program for the GNOME desktop environment, based on The
SWORD Project by the CrossWire Bible Society, a framework for developing Bible
study tools and of associated texts such as commentaries and dictionaries.
This package provides the main Xiphos program, a digital text reader with
bookmarks and full-text search. It allows viewing multiple versions of the same
text, for parallel reading of alternatives or translations. It also supports
personal verse-specific notes and a rich-text study pad, both of which have
spell checking and full-text search.
Xiphos has a built-in facility to browse and install freely-distributed content
from CrossWire repositories.

xiphos (3.1.2-1ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low
* debian/patches/xul192-workaround.patch:
- Ensure that we don't load the 1.9.2 GRE if it is installed, as
1.9.2 makes xiphos unusable at the moment. This is a temporary 
measure until the new xulrunner behaviour is understood
* debian/control:
- Explicitly depend xulrunner-1.9.1
* debian/rules:
- Don't call dh_xulrunner to automatically populate the binary depends.
This is known to be broken in xulrunner-1.9.1 (it adds an incorrectly
versioned dependency). We add it manually instead
2010-02-28 - Micah Gersten <micahg@ubuntu.com>
xiphos (3.1.2-1build1) lucid; urgency=low
* No source change rebuild against xulrunner-1.9.2 (LP: #536877)
