jacal (1b9-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix bashism in /bin/sh script. Simply setting "#!/bin/bash" in the
offending file was not enough as the shebang was added programmatically
in debian/rules. (Closes: #464995)
* Move documentation from deprecated "Apps/Math" section to
* Ensure clean target removes version.txt and all .info files generated
during build.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.0.

jacal (1b8-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* debian/control (Depends): Require version 3a5-1 or slib; that's the first
Debian slib to put the init files in the usual place.  Thus the fix to
jacal.sh closing bug 401030 is no longer needed.
* jacal.1: Repeat change from 1b7-1.
* jacal.sh: Repeat second change from 1b7-2.
2006-12-09 - Thomas Bushnell, BSG <tb@debian.org>

* jacal.sh: Find .init files in proper subdirectory of slib library location.
(Closes: #401030)
* jacal.sh: Look for "guile-1.6" and not guile; likewise make the usage
statement say to request "guile-1.6" if that's what you want.
* debian/control (Depends): Require guile-1.6 and not just any guile.
[These changes are further required for jacal to work right with guile.]
