BLT is a library of useful extensions for the Tcl language and the
popular Tk graphical toolkit.  It adds a vector and tree data type,
background execution and some debugging tools to Tcl, and provides
several new widgets for Tk, including graphs, bar-charts, trees, tabs,
splines and hyper-links, as well as a new geometry manager, drag &
drop support, and more.
This package is a dummy package which depends on the current BLT

blt (2.5.3+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Removed non-distributable files library/dd_protocols/* from the source
package (closes: #769814).
* Split out the tk8.6-blt2.5 package to reflect the changed library soname.
The 8.6 suffix is added because this package works only with Tcl/Tk 8.6.
Added breaks header with all packages dependent on blt which included
the previous library soname. This prevents partial upgrades
(closes: #751767).
* Bumped the standards version to 3.9.6.
2014-07-09 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Made blt-dev replace blt (<< 2.5) because the doc-base file is moved to
the former package from the latter.
* Added patch which fixes BLT stubs declaration.
* Added a few patches which eliminate GCC warnings about incompatible
pointer types, using possibly unitialized variables, unused variables
and casts to/from pointer from/to integer of different size. This
fixes a few segfaults in demos (but not all of them).
2014-07-06 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Added missing headers to bltNsUtil.c to fix build failures on 64bit
2014-07-04 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Restored forgotten call to dh_autotools-dev_updateconfig and explicitly
supplied --host option to the configure call to build the package on
kfreebsd-* architectures.
2014-07-04 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.5.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer Sergei Golovan (closes: #664092).
* New upstream and new upstream release.
* Reviewed and refreshed patches.
* Added a patch from the FreeBSD BLT port. It allows BLT to work when it's
built with Tcl/Tk 8.6 (closes: #753476).
* Moved HTML documentation from blt to blt-dev.
2014-06-13 - Matthias Klose <>
blt (2.4z-9) unstable; urgency=high
* QA upload.
* Build using Tcl/Tk 8.6.
2014-04-16 - Sergei Golovan <>
blt (2.4z-8) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Fixed build with newer Tcl/Tk package which switched from shlibs to
symbols. (Closes: #724882)
2013-09-22 - Guillem Jover <>
blt (2.4z-7) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Rename man-n-2.diff to doc-typos.diff.
* Move man page fixes from 02-debian-all.diff into doc-typos.diff.
* Remove autotools update from 02-debian-all.diff, they are now handled
automatically by dh_autotools-dev helpers.
* Namespace extremely generic man page names with «blt::».
(Closes: #721386, #722660)
* Rename BLT.3 to blt::intro.3 to match the .TH entry.
* Do not run «make distclean» on the build target, that's the job of the
clean target.
* Remove redundant binary package Sections inherited from the source stanza.
* Annotate hardening.diff, stating why the patch is wrong, and how it
should be fixed.
