Official Mirror
libXaw7 provides the second version of Xaw, the Athena Widgets toolkit,
which is largely used by legacy X applications.  This version is the
most common version, as version 6 is considered deprecated, and version
8, which adds Xprint support, is unsupported and not widely used.
In general, use of a more modern toolkit such as GTK+ is recommended.
This package contains the development headers for the library found in
libxaw7.  Non-developers likely have little use for this package.

libxaw (2:1.0.9-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Noticeable change: xaw6.pc now only has xmu in Requires.private, no
longer in Requires. Since it might trigger some FTBFS, target
experimental. Better be safe than sorry.

[ Julien Cristau ]
* Revert addition of to libxaw7.install, done by mistake in the
previous revision.  That file belongs in the -dev package and is already
in libxaw7-dev.links (closes: #602620).  Delete the link in debian/rules
install instead, to avoid dh_install complaints.

* Lose the git push race, thank Alex Goebel for the report, and upload.
