2011-06-16 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
jigit (1.19-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
+ Improved error-handling in mkimage and libjte.
- mkjigsnap rewrite:
- merge two old implementations
- switch to perl: cleaner code, much faster snapshot generation
- added -v (verbose) and -N (dry-run) options
+ Put AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR in a better place in the libjte configure
+ Remove -Werror from the Makefile - gcc is getting more and more
pedantic with every release, and this may cause package builds to
* Removed the jigit script itself - it hasn't worked in ages, and just
doesn't seem to be useful any more. Closes: #506449
2011-05-29 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
jigit (1.18-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Turn off -Werror for release builds. Leaving the bug open, as I have
reassigned it to gcc-4.6.

jigit (1.18-1) unstable; urgency=low

+ s,config.h,../config.h, in libjte for easier use by the xorriso folks
2011-03-30 - Steve McIntyre <93sam@debian.org>
