OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by
Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications.
OpenEXR's features include:
* Higher dynamic range and colour precision than existing 8- and
10-bit image file formats.
* Support for the "half" 16-bit floating-point pixel format.
* Multiple lossless image compression algorithms. Some of the
included codecs can achieve 2:1 lossless compression ratios on
images with film grain.
* Extensibility. New compression codecs and image types can easily
be added by extending the C++ classes included in the OpenEXR
software distribution. New image attributes (strings, vectors,
integers, etc.) can be added to OpenEXR image headers without
affecting backward compatibility with existing OpenEXR
This package contains the following shared library:
* IlmImf - a library that reads and writes OpenEXR images.

openexr (1.6.1-6) unstable; urgency=low
* nonlinuxlargestack.diff Fix FTBFS when large stacks are disabled.
Bug-report, diagnosis and patch by Pino Toscano. Closes: #680509

openexr (1.6.1-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Update package short description, openexr does not contain a viewer.
Closes: #471783
* Use 3.0 (quilt) source format.
* Re-enable doc-base support. At least dhelp works without problems.
* Use dh $@ --with autotools_dev. Version autotools-dev b-d.
* The latter three changes add support for build-arch target, fixing FTBFS.
Closes: #666297
* Change override_dh_auto_test target to invoke dh_auto_test, otherwise the
testsuite is run twice. (Once for build and binary).
* Add myself to uploaders, remove Cyril. (Thanks for you work!)
* Empty dependency_libs in libtool la file.
* Fix doc-base ids. (lowercase, no underscore.)
* Drop Section: graphics from binary package stanza in debian/control.
* Fix typo mutiple in exrmaketiled.1.
* Use 'dpkg-buildflags --export=configure' to get hardening-flags. (Thanks,
Moritz Muehlenhoff). Add required b-d on dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1). 
Closes: #656506

openexr (1.6.1-4.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload by the Security Team.
* Fixed CVE-2009-1720: Integer overflows in Imf::PreviewImage::PreviewImage
and integer overflows in compressor constructors
* Fixed CVE-2009-1721: uninitialized pointers in Imf::hufUncompress
* Patch stolen from stable-security, thanks to Cyril Brulebois
(Closes: #550424)

openexr (1.6.1-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Adopt the package within pkg-phototools (Closes: #494877):
- Thanks to Adeodato Simó et al. for having taken care of it until
- Set Maintainer to the group.
- Set Uploaders to myself.
- Update Vcs-{Git,Browser}.
- Remove XS-X-Collab-Maint field, no longer relevant. Patches are
still welcome, though!
* Switch to debhelper 7:
- Bump debian/compat to 7.
- Version the B-D on debhelper: >= 7.0.50 to allow the use of
- Specify some overrides to tweak as needed for the build:
- dh_auto_configure: pass the --with-openexr flag to configure
- dh_auto_test: don't run “check” on arm and ia64 for now, and
bypass dh_auto_test due to bad target detection.
- dh_compress: no longer compress .h/.cpp examples.
- dh_link: needed since libopenexr-dev's and openexr's /us/s/d
directories are symlinks to libopenexr6's one.
- dh_makeshlibs: keep on using -V.
- dh_installdeb: add a call to dh_buildinfo to keep on storing the
versions of packages installed during the build.
- Specify some targets:
- build and clean to handle patching/unpatching and
updating/cleaning config.{guess,sub}.
* Now compress PDF documentation. Any sane PDF viewer should be able to
handle decompression.
* Remove .gitignore file.
* Add ${misc:Depends} to all binaries.
* Bump Standards-Version from 3.7.3 to 3.8.1 (no changes needed).
