AOLserver is the web engine that powers America Online. It
is capable of serving a very high number of users, and can host
hundreds of virtual servers simultaneously within the same process.
It is similar in many respects to Zope, except based largely on Tcl.
It is multi-threaded, and has a C API that can be used to extend
its functionality.
This package provides the basic shared libraries which are needed by
the daemon and are also useful for building add-on modules. It does
not contain the AOLserver daemon, which is in aolserver4.

2014-04-29 - Francesco Paolo Lovergine <>
aolserver4 (4.5.1-18) unstable; urgency=medium
* Changed tcl8.6.patch to add USE_INTERP_RESULT, which is better for legacy
code. That should fix also non core modules at build time.
(closes: #746166)
2014-04-28 - Francesco Paolo Lovergine <>
aolserver4 (4.5.1-17) unstable; urgency=medium

aolserver4 (4.5.1-15) unstable; urgency=low
* Merges from experimental branch.

internal libraries of aolserver4-core/daemon in order to avoid pollution
of /usr/lib path.

* Fixed aolserver4-daemon.postinst to avoid having +x in /etc/default/aolserver4

configuration time. It could expose to (sym)link attacks when upgrading.
(closes: #606554)
* Fixed maint rules to autogenerate template *.in files at every build.
* ABI increased to 1 for safety to avoid mixing modules built with different
Tcl versions.

aolserver4 (4.5.1-12) unstable; urgency=low
* Removed aolserver4-daemon depending for aolserver4-core.

aolserver4 (4.5.1-9) unstable; urgency=low
* Removing default script at purge time by ucf.
