* New upstream release:
- Made status line clock display configurable (Closes: #510392).
* debian/changelog:

* Added binary package "ncmpc-lyrics". This package includes the lyrics
plugins, some of which depend on python or ruby. By splitting them into a
separate package, we avoid any kind of dependency on python or ruby in the
"ncmpc" package which now suggests ncmpc-lyrics instead of python, ruby.
