* patches/boost-1.55-128bit_int_support.patch: New. Patch fixing build
where 128-bit integer not supported, cherry-picked from upstream.
Closes: #758892.
* patches/ppc64el-fp_traits-ibm-long-double.patch: New.  Patch removing
fp_traits_non_native for long double on powerPC, which is apparently
broken.  Closes: #761926.
*, control: Update vcs URLs.

boost1.55 (1.55.0+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Disable pch on arm64, to avoid FTBFS. (Closes: #750956)
* Speed up qemu-static builds a little, by not working perl many times
when computing version strings to use.

boost1.55 (1.55.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.
* Use Uscan extension to
declare excluded file (W3C validation icon)
* Use uscan to download current version of boost, and thus
auto-repackage with above non-dfsg file removed. Or
e.g. --svn-download-orig option to svn-buildpackage.
* Adjust version parsing in the debian/rules to keep the same versioning

boost1.55 (1.55.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* In libboost-python1.55-dev drop gccxml to Suggests as it's not
available on all architectures, is based upon old gcc, and not at all
required to compile boost-python based projects.
* Mark libboost1.55-dev & libboost-coroutine1.55-dev as Multi-Arch same.
* Automate more of building boost without mpi, or just mpi portions.

boost1.55 (1.55.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Steve M. Robbins ]
* New upstream.  
-, control: regenerated using  Set
Standards-Version to 3.9.5.
* Remove patches applied upstream:
- 001-coroutine.patch
- 002-date-time.patch
- boost-1.44-py3.1.patch
- boost-1.54.0-thread-link_atomic.patch
- 85160.patch
- eglibc-long-long.patch
* patches/endian.patch: Remove.  Upstream changed endian detection.
* patches/boost-1.55.0-001-log_fix_dump_avx2.patch: New.  Upstream patch
to fix incorrect output of the dump manipulator, when used on
AVX2-enabled CPU (e.g. Intel Haswell).
* rules: Suppress warnings about unused local typedefs
(-Wno-unused-local-typedefs) because they are massively generated by
Boost Concept Check Library.
[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* Refresh patches/ELFv2-libboost1.54-dev-context-asm.patch
* Refresh patches/boost-python-examples.patch: Hopefully does not
reopen: #452410.
