Official Mirror:
Liboop is a low-level event loop management library for POSIX-based operating systems. It supports the development of modular, multiplexed applications which may respond to events from several sources. It replaces the "select() loop" and allows the registration of event handlers for file and network I/O, timers and signals. Since processes use these mechanisms for almost all external communication, liboop can be used as a basis for almost any application. This package contains the liboop development libraries and header files, required to develop and/or compile applications that use liboop.

    2014-04-13 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-11) unstable; urgency=medium * new-readline-typedef.patch (new): Replace obsolete typedef for callback function pointer cast (in test-oop, which we don't use) (Closes: #743094). * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5.

    2013-10-15 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-10) unstable; urgency=low * Update homepage URL and upstream maintainers. * Build with default tcl-dev instead of obsolete versions (Closes: #725334). Thanks to Sergei Golovan. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4.

    2012-02-26 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-9) unstable; urgency=low * Add build-arch and build-indep targets. * Remove arch-indep build dependency on sharutils, which is unnecessary since the conversion to source format 3.0 when the former web site was put in an additional upstream tarball. * Use dpkg-buildflags. * Use dh-autoreconf to handle autoreconfing. * Use current automake to build package, instead of 1.9, since it seems to work. Maybe 1.10 didn't work. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.

    2010-07-30 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-8) unstable; urgency=low * Remove dependency on binutils-gold, which was inadvertently left in place after testing.

    2010-07-30 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-7) unstable; urgency=low * Add debug package * Switch to source format 3.0 (quilt). * Put the documentation from the former web site in an additional upstream tarball. This means the logo no longer has to be stored as-is instead of as a self-extracting archive, making the associated Makefile unnecessary as well. The html can be installed by dh_installdocs instead. * read_bugfixes.patch: Fixes from Ian Jackson to bugs in a feature for reading lines and records that he once contributed (Closes: #579604). * Upgrade to debhelper compatibility level 7, use dh_install instead of dh_movefiles as well as dh_prep instead of dh_clean. * configure_support_freebsd_hurd.patch: Separate patch for bug #359930. * explicit_linking.patch: In, explicitly link test-oop with all the libraries that the adapter libraries use, so that the package can be built with binutils-gold, where --no-add-needed is the default (Closes: #555285). Also add -lglib-2.0 to the Libs: line in liboop-glib2.pc (indirectly, via

    2009-09-27 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-6) unstable; urgency=low * Build with libreadline6 instead of libreadline5 (drop the libreadline5-dev Build-Depends alternative). * Add ${misc:Depends} to all Depends in case Debhelper needs it. * Remove libc6-dev from Depends of liboop-dev; it's build-essential. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3.

    2009-04-13 - Magnus Holmgren <> liboop (1.0-5) unstable; urgency=low * Build with GLib 2.0 instead of 1.2 (Closes: #523688). * Switch to Debhelper level 5. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.1. * Skip unnecessary dh_installdirs; delete unused files from the debian directory.
