    2014-06-06 - Petter Reinholdtsen <> libmpeg3 (1.8.dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=low * Add patch header-comment-fix.patch to fix a typo in the mpeg3protos.h header. * Move header files to /usr/include/mpeg3/ to group them together and become compatible with Fedora which already place them there. Adjust pkg-config file to reflect the change.

    2014-06-02 - Petter Reinholdtsen <> libmpeg3 (1.8.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low * Update to debhelper 9 support. * Move source patches to debian/patches/ and package format to 3.0 (quilt). * Update upstream source to version 1.8 (Closes: #430770). - Split relevant parts of the patch used in 1.5.4-5.1 info new patches alpha-largefile.patch and debian-build-rules.patch - Drop patches to fix bugs #287422 and #729275, as these problems are fixed differently upstream. - Change shared library major number from 1 to 2, as the new library have a new API and ABI. - No longer have typo in Makefile (Closes: #374504). - Repack upstream tarball without mpeg3css.c and the a52dec library. Instructions for how to do this is in debian/rules. * Add patch prototype-free.patch to make sure stdlib.h is included before free() is used. * Change encoding of debian/copyright to UTF-8. * Update standards-version from to 3.9.5. * Add missing dependency on ${misc:Depends}. Thank you lintian. * Adjust copyright file to document upstream copyright 2003-2008. * Change debian/rules to use dh_prep instead of the obsolete dh_clean -k. Thank you, lintian. * Enable hardening flags during build and linking. * New patch fix-format-security-error.patch to make code buildable with hardening enabled. * Add homepage URL to control file (Closes: #749469). * Reorder shared library linking rule to work with the --as-needed linker flag (Closes: #633333). Patch from Sebastian Carneiro and Ubuntu. * Use ${binary:Version} when depending on library from dev package, instead of the obsolete ${Source-Version}. Thank you, lintian. * New patch fix-video-alpha.patch lifted from the Cinelerra project fixing pixel conversion macros, making sure the default alpha level is max, not zero. * New patch handle-hdv-m2t.patch lifted from the Cinelerra project adding code to recognize *.m2t as MPEG files. * Add Vcs-* headers to control file pointing to the collab-maint git repository. * New patch fix-format-strings.patch to correct format string problems reported by the compiler because hardening was enabled. * Add new patch compiler-warnings.patch to enable more compiler warnings. * Add new patch missing-include.patch to include system header files where they were missing. * Add patch fix-fake-css.patch to fix inconsistent function signature. * Add patch missing-prototypes.patch to include prototypes before function calls. * Add pkgconfig file for libmpeg3 to ease detection and linking. * Add missing rules targets build-arch and build-indep. Thanks lintian for the reminder. * Add myself as uploader.
