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 library for Avahi's C API which  allows you
to integrate mDNS/DNS-SD functionality into your application.

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.

avahi (0.6.31-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* d/p/so_reuseport-may-not-exist-in-running-kernel.patch: Do not exit
avahi-daemon if we cannot set SO_REUSEPORT on the socket. This patch has
be taken from Ubuntu, thanks to them (Closes: #732009)
* 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
deprecated when compiling for GTK3.
* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no further changes)

[ Laurent Bigonville ]
* debian/control: Use canonical URL's for Vcs-* fields
* debian/avahi-daemon.init: Add "avahi-daemon" to the Provides list
(Closes: #730546)
* debian/avahi-dnsconfd.init: Depend against the new avahi-daemon Provides
* debian/avahi-daemon.links, debian/avahi-dnsconfd.links, debian/control,
debian/rules: Do not explicitly create systemd symlinks but rely on
dh-systemd to do the correct thing
* debian/control: Drop duplicate Section to please lintian
* 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: Use debhelper 9 preferred way to set LDFLAGS (Closes: #662204)
* 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)
* debian/rules: run autoreconf at build time.
* debian/control: add dh-autoreconf build depend
2013-03-06 - Michael Biebl <>
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)
2012-03-04 - Michael Biebl <>
avahi (0.6.31-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Mark private stdb_* symbols in libavahi-ui and libavahi-ui-gtk3 as

* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3. No further changes.
* Use new dh_installdeb maintscript facility to (re)move the old conffiles
for avahi-autoipd and avahi-dnsconfd.
