texlive-bin (2012.20120623-1) unstable; urgency=low
* post release fixed from Peter Breitenlohner (will be included upstream):
- (patch-dvi2tty, patch-lacheck) Ken Brown <> has noteda
that already moderately long pathnames may yield buffer overruns in 
lacheck and dvi2tty.
- (patch-icu) three ICU library files have been modified (undoing ICU 
SVN commit 36090 from 2009-06-11), in order to solve all/most XeTeX 
problems with Indic scripts.
- (patch-pdftex) a small change in pdftexdir/ required to
build pdfTeX with poppler >=0.18.4 (system-xpdf).  Note, however, that 
building pdfTeX that way slightly reduces its capability to handle large 
files (see README.config 1.6 and 3.4.2).
* update updmap man page (Closes: #677300)
* (pulled from upupstream cvs, patch xdvi-upupstream-fixes)
- Fixed bugs in property handling on 64-bit systems (related to source 
- Added support for XkbBell, to make the console bell work again.
