GObject Introspection is a project for providing machine readable
introspection data of the API of C libraries. This introspection
data can be used in several different use cases, for example
automatic code generation for bindings, API verification and documentation
GObject Introspection contains tools to generate and handle the
introspection data.
This package contains small pieces of introspection data for the Cairo,
FontConfig, FreeType, GL, and some XOrg libraries. They are
distributed in this package temporarily, while the original sources
do not include support for GObject Introspection. They are far from
complete and only include what is necessary for other introspection
packages to work properly.

gobject-introspection (1.42.0-2.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Dont_unconditionally_include_config.h_in_gimarshallingtests.c.patch:
new patch, similar to the one applied in the last upload, that fixed
the same problem in regress.c only (Closes: #764272)

gobject-introspection (1.42.0-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.

gobject-introspection (1.42.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* dh_girepository: Add a versioned dependency on libgirepository-1.0-1
(>= 1.41.4-1) to ${gir:Depends} if a gir package installs typelib files
into multiarch libdir. This ensures a multiarch capable version of
libgirepository-1.0-1 is installed to avoid breakage on partial upgrades.

gobject-introspection (1.42.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Drop debian/patches/0001-Hide-more-symbols-that-shouldn-t-be-exported.patch
- now include in new upstream release.

gobject-introspection (1.41.91-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop debian/patches/0002-Export-missing-g_typelib_error_quark.patch
- doesn't look like it'll be applied upstream and who cares about
this symbol anyway?
* Drop g_typelib_error_quark from debian/libgirepository-1.0-1.symbols

gobject-introspection (1.41.91-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* dh_girepository: In require_typelib(), always return if we've found the
target typelib in the system directory, since we'll have definitely added
the dependency. Thanks again to mvo.
2014-09-05 - Andreas Henriksson <>
gobject-introspection (1.41.91-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* New upstream development release.
* Add debian/patches/0001-Hide-more-symbols-that-shouldn-t-be-exported.patch
and debian/patches/0002-Export-missing-g_typelib_error_quark.patch
- fix what seems to be mistakenly exported and a missing symbol from
conversion to "Export Symbols Using Compiler Directives"

gobject-introspection (1.41.4-1) experimental; urgency=medium
[ Martin Pitt ]
* dh_girepository(1): Point out that --with gir is needed for dh.
(Closes: #692254)
[ Jackson Doak ]
* New upstream release
- Add Test API required by gjs 1.40.1. (LP: #1314441)
- Update symbols file
[ Andreas Henriksson ]
* New upstream development release.
* Drop patch from upstream:
- debian/patches/git_tests_implementation_interface.patch
[ Iain Lane ]
* debian/{rules, dh_girepository}: Apply patch (slightly modified) from
Michael Vogt to use a multiarch libdir. As typelib files are placed into a
subdirectory of libdir, this may cause some packages (those which respect
the `typelibdir' variable in the pcfile) to fail to build until their
.install files are updated. This change allows gir packages to be made
multiarch. (Closes: #755874)
+ debian/patches/pre_multiarch_compat: Search for typelib files in the
pre-multiarch path too.
+ debian/control*: Mark gi packages as M-A: same

gobject-introspection (1.40.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop breaks on libgjs0c like was done for 1.38.0-2/sid.
* Upload to unstable.
2014-03-25 - Andreas Henriksson <>
gobject-introspection (1.40.0-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* Bump glib build-dep to >= 2.39.0
- otherwise gir1.2-glib-2.0 doesn't get g_desktop_app_info_search
which is needed by gnome-shell.
* debian/copyright: fix syntax errors caught by lintian
* New upstream release.
