Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery.
It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts
running on a local network with no specific configuration. For
example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to
print to, files to look at and people to talk to.
This package contains the Avahi Daemon which represents your machine
on the network and allows other applications to publish and resolve
mDNS/DNS-SD records.

avahi (0.6.31-5) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Andreas Henriksson ]
* Recommend iproute2 instead of transitional package iproute.
* Update avahi-daemon support scripts to use iproute2 tools if available
with a fallback to net-tools and graceful degradation if neither is
installed. (Closes: #762326)
[ Michael Biebl ]
* Don't run the avahi-autoipd ifupdown hook scripts if the package has been
removed but not purged. (Closes: #780872)
* Use --restart-after-upgrade for avahi-daemon and avahi-dnsconfd to
minimise downtime and avoid avahi-daemon being triggered via socket or
D-Bus activation during upgrades. (Closes: #768620)
* Mask avahi-daemon.service on remove to avoid the stop request being
cancelled via socket or D-Bus activation.

* debian/patches/avahi-core-reserve-space-for-record-data-when-size-estimate.patch:
avahi-core: reserve space for record data when size estimate. This
prevents avahi-daemon from falling into an invalid loop when many CUPS/IPP
printer shares get registered (Closes: #693604)
* debian/libavahi-core7.symbols: Add 2 new symbols exported by the previous
* debian/patches/suse-patch-gtk-box.patch: Don't use GTK vbox API which is

* debian/avahi-dnsconfd.init: Depend against the new avahi-daemon Provides

* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no further changes)
* debian/control, debian/rules: Update config.{guess,sub} during the build

* debian/rules: Pass --as-needed to dh_autoreconf and add it to LDFLAGS to
limit runtime dependencies
* debian/avahi-daemon.init, avahi-dnsconfd.init: Fix initscripts to return
an error in the appropriate cases (Closes: #718716)
[ Hector Oron ]
* debian/patch/no-deprecations.patch: Don't disable deprecated functions
(Closes: #729124)

avahi (0.6.31-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Use recommended maintscript versioning scheme.
* The avahi-dnsconfd init script doesn't support reload but provides a
refresh action, so list that instead in the usage help message.
* Update ifupdown hooks for avahi-daemon and avahi-autoipd. Drop the usage
of ADDRFAM=NetworkManager, since network-manager no longer uses that. Run
avahi-daemon only for ADDRFAM inet and inet6. (Closes: #699749)

avahi (0.6.31-1) unstable; urgency=low
