libmtp (1.1.6-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release:
- Soname - binary compatible.
- Devices, devices, devices...
- More careful autoprobing code for Linux, running around in
sysfs to try to avoid opening non-MTP devices.
- Interface extenstions from Philip Langdale to support the
Android in-place read/write extensions. This will be used by
GVFS for editing files etc, it is actually very useful when
treating the MTP device as a "real" filesystem. It only works
on Android devices with Google's MTP stack.
- Several fixes and memory leaks fixed by Lei Zhang courtesy if
the Chromebook project, thanks Google!
- Did you know that Microsoft silently dropped the MTPZ extension
from Windows Phone 8? Now you know. Newer Windows Phone
devices are reported to work out-of-the-box with libmtp.
* Refresh symbols.

- Switch back from dh-autoreconf to autotools-dev.
* Use Vcs canonical field.
* Bump Standards.
