Theseus is a program that simultaneously superimposes multiple
macromolecular structures. Theseus finds the optimal solution to the
superposition problem using the method of maximum likelihood. By
down-weighting variable regions of the superposition and by correcting for
correlations among atoms, the ML superposition method produces very
accurate structural alignments.
When macromolecules with different residue sequences are superimposed,
other programs and algorithms discard residues that are aligned with
gaps. Theseus, however, uses a novel superimposition algorithm that
includes all of the data.

theseus (1.6.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* debian/patches:
Replaced by sed script in debian/rules which works (hopefully)
for future versions as well without manually changing the patch
- use_muscle_instead_of_clustalw.patch:
Removed because clustalw is no in main and we do not need
to actively replace it by muscle
- 00-makefile.patch:
Removed because applied upstream
+ One purpose was to replace not working libtool call by ar
which was applied upstream
+ Other purpose was to enable liblapack (patch by Morten
Kjeldgaard) which was discussed with upstream and seems to
cause problems.  So it was deactivated for now and might be
tested later for enabling higher performance if needed.

theseus (1.5.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* Standards-Version: 3.9.1 (no changes needed)
* Adapt debian/patches to new upstream version
* Source format 3.0 (quilt)
* debian/patches/use_muscle_instead_of_clustalw.patch:
The script thesaus_align says it would use muscle as align program
but it actually uses clustalw which is in non-free and thus we can
not recommend it.  The patch makes muscle really the default
* Depends: muscle (instead of Suggests)
* debian/theseus_align.1: Better wording for muscle preference

theseus (1.4.3-2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/patches/10_kbsd.patch: Correctly applied patch from
Cyril (sorry for mixing this up)
Closes: #542879
