awesfx (0.5.0b-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer. Closes: #235271.
* New upstream release.
* Upstream is now using automake/autoconf, debian/rules is
changed accordingly.
* Upstream now has ALSA support, Build-Depends is changed
* Upstream is now installing banks into /usr/share/sounds/sf2,
not /usr/lib/sfbank. debian/rules, /etc/sfxload, and others
are changed accordingly.
* Manually install libawe.a since upstream makefiles don't anymore.
Not sure if anyone needs it, but better safe than sorry.
* Merged useful README information from unofficial awesfx 0.5.0a
package by Nicos Panayides into README.Debian.
* And honorary mention to Darren Salt for keeping awesfx 0.4.4
available on the web (although this package was based on the
official 0.4.4-5 package found on, not on
his 0.4.4-6 package).
