Vigor is a perpetration of the Microsoft Word "Office Assistant" paperclip,
based on nvi. It was inspired by Pitr of the "User Friendly" comic strip
Some people have speculated that Vigor was created under the influence of
the evil Crud Puppy. The maintainer of this Debian package would like to
stress his firm belief that these foul rumours are entirely without

vigor (0.016-19+deb7u1) stable; urgency=medium
* Use libc's regex routines rather than the bundled ones, to avoid needing
to apply security patches independently (closes: #778409).
2012-06-22 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-19) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop manual and not-very-useful 'debian/rules configure' target.
* Upgrade to debhelper 9, mainly for hardening build flags support.
2012-01-03 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-18) unstable; urgency=low
* Build-depend on libxt-dev for AC_PATH_X (closes: #654320).
2011-12-29 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-17) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch to tcl8.5 and tk8.5 (closes: #653550).
* Switch to debhelper 8.
* Use client-side fonts.  Server-side fonts don't seem to work properly in
Tk 8.5.
2011-09-08 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-16) unstable; urgency=low
* Use 'dh <sequence> --options' rather than 'dh --options <sequence>', for
forward-compatibility with debhelper v8.
* Update Vcs-Bzr field for Alioth changes.
* Add build-arch and build-indep targets.
2010-03-26 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-15) unstable; urgency=low
* Convert to source format 3.0 (quilt) and DEP-3 patch tagging.
* Never automatically rebuild autotools files.  It's likely to cause
problems given the ancient autoconf in use here, and the output produced
by automatic rebuilds confuses dh_auto_* when trying to detect make
2010-02-18 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-14) unstable; urgency=low
* Use dh --sourcedirectory=build, simplifying debian/rules. Requires
debhelper 7.3.0.
2009-07-28 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-13) unstable; urgency=low
* Update DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS parsing code from policy 3.8.0.
* Imported into a branch on; add Vcs-Bzr control field.
* Convert to debhelper 7. Uses override targets, so requires 7.0.50.
* Don't remove vi/#v_xchar.c# on clean; it's in the upstream tarball.
2007-11-30 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-12) unstable; urgency=low
* Update watch file to new location on SourceForge (thanks, Raphael
Geissert; closes: #449945).
2007-11-19 - Colin Watson <>
vigor (0.016-11) unstable; urgency=low
* Use autotools-dev's recommended ./configure options to set the host
* Don't ignore errors from 'make -C build distclean' other than the
Makefile not existing.
