ccache (3.1.12-1) stable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release 3.1.12 containing important bug fixes (and only
bug fixes) made since 3.1.10:
- Fixes a bug where (due to ccache rewriting paths) the compiler could
choose incorrect include files if CCACHE_BASEDIR is used and the
source file path is absolute and is a symlink. (Closes: #829088.)
- Fixes a bug which could result in false cache hits when source code
contains '"' followed by " /*" or " //" (with variations).
- Makes hash of cached result created with and without CCACHE_CPP2
different. This makes it possible to rebuild with CCACHE_CPP2 set
without having to clear the cache to get new results.
- Fixes a bug which could result in "No such file or directory"
messages in the ccache log when the cache directory doesn't exist.
