    2014-02-03 - Markus Koschany <> marsshooter (0.7.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Depend on fonts package fonts-wqy-microhei instead of the deprecated ttf-wqy-microhei. * Add fix-segfault-when-using-arguments-without-path.patch. - Fix a segmentation fault when one tries to launch M.A.R.S using the -cfg or -data arguments without specifying a path after that argument. Thanks to Sylvain Boilard for the report and patch! (Closes: #737487) * Add Forwarded headers to all patches. * Remove source/options file because xz compression is the default now.

    2013-12-17 - Markus Koschany <> marsshooter (0.7.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Initial release. (Closes: #722915)
