libdv (1.0.0-4) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer. (Closes: #654649), thanks to Daniel Kobras
for the great work.
* Switch packaging to 3.0 (quilt) format plus DH 7.
* Convert patches to quilt format.
* Build with Multi-Arch support. (Closes: #650994)
* Drop libc6-dev from -DEV's Depends field.
* Get rid of .la files.
* Disable the build of static libraries.
* Remove debian/libdv-bin.links, it doesn't work.
* Remove debian/README.source, it's now unneeded.
* Update debian/copyright as per DEP-5.
* YUV_420_USE_YV12 option affects the wrong encoding (Closes: #466142):
- The build configuration option --with-pal-yuv=YV12 actually affects
encoding of "NTSC", inconsistent with decoding. This option is not
currently used in Debian but could affect those who rebuild it.
Thanks to Ben Hutchings for report and patch.
* Fix binary-control-field-duplicates-source
* Fix small misspellings.
* Fix hyphen-used-as-minus-sign.

libdv (1.0.0-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Added patches:
+ [10_hurd_ftbfs_fix] New.
Add proper defines for two video1394-specific structs on GNU/Hurd
to prevent build failure. Patch thanks to Pino Toscano.\
Closes: #585718
+ [12_no_as_needed] New.
Reference all required libs when building playdv. Patch thanks
to Matthias Klose (via Ubuntu). Closes: #555173

* debian/control: Reflect section change from graphics to video.
* debian/control: Demote oss-compat from Recommends to Suggests for
libdv4 because encoding from OSS input is just a rarely used, optional
feature. Closes: #579527
* debian/control: Add Recommends on oss-compat for libdv-bin because
OSS is playdv's only way to playback audio.
* debian/control: Package complies with version 3.9.1 of Debian policy.
* debian/README.source: Refer to dpatch documentation for source
* debian/rules: Empty dependency_libs line in
