    2014-10-26 - Faidon Liambotis <> librdkafka (0.8.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Install rdkafka.pc in the right, multiarch location. (Closes: #766759)

(Closes: #739930) - Various portability bugs fixed. (Closes: #730506) - Update debian/librdkafka1.symbols. * Convert to a multiarch package. * Switch to Architecture: any, because of renewed upstream portability. * Update debian/copyright to add src/ before Files: paths. * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.6, no changes needed. * Ship only the C library for now, not the new C++ library; the latter is still in flux in some ways and will probably be shipped in a separate package in a future release.
