libupnp (1:1.6.19+git20141001-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Ack both NMUs, thankyou for your care of this package.
* New upstream release (Closes: #740584, #670964).  We take the git version
as the git log suggests some worthwhile security and reliability fixes.
* Build for IPv6 (note, UpnpInit() only enables IPv4 connections so
most existing libupnp users need not be aware of this).
* Change Priority to "optional" (Closes: #740582).
* Remove patch 0001-Security-fix-for-CERT-issue-VU-922681 now in upstream.
* Improve debian/rules hardening option usage stuff.
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes required).
* Fix "memset(ctx, 0, sizeof(ctx));   /* In case it's sensitive */"
in our copy of Colin Plumb's md5.c (patch 01-debian-md5-licence.patch).
* Disable build tests since we aren't guaranteed to have network access
in buildds (patch 19).
