PLplot is relatively small, portable, freely distributable, and is rich
enough to satisfy most users.  It has a wide range of plot types including
line (linear, log), contour, 3D, fill, and almost 1000 characters
(including Greek and mathematical) in its extended font set.  The package
is designed to make it easy to quickly get graphical output; only a
handful of function calls is typically required.  For more advanced use,
virtually all aspects of plotting are configurable.
This package provides the Cairo driver module for PLplot.  It is based
on the Cairo 2D graphics library with supporting multiple output devices
(X-Window, PDF, PostScript, and PNG).

plplot (5.10.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Repackage upstream source to remove non-DFSG compliant documentation. 
This is regenerated automatically anyway. Fixes lintian errors. 
* debian/watch: Update watch file to account for mangled version with
+dfsg suffix. Avoids lintian warning.
* debian/rules, debian/repack: Add target to automatically download
and clean up source to remove non-DFSG compliant code.
* debian/README.Debian: Document changes to make the package DFSG 
* debian/patches/fix_config_h_clash: New patch from upstream to fix name
clash with HAVE_CONFIG_H. (Closes: #761176). 
* debian/copyright: Update to use new machine readable format, and to
include fuller details of files which have different licensing 
conditions to the standard LGPL. (Closes: #761057)
* debian/ Include libplplot-dev dependencies on 
plplot12-driver-qt and plplot12-driver-wxwidgets to avoid dangling 
symlinks. (Closes: #715105). Change build dependency on 
ttf-freefont transitional package to fonts-freefont-ttf.
* debian/patches/set_cmake_policy: Set cmake policy CMP0026 to old to 
allow compilation with cmake 3. For installed examples also set cmake
policy CMP0046 to old to suppress warnings.
* debian/patches/octave_3.8_support.diff: Fix bug introduced in octave
example 07.

[Thibaut Paumard <>]
NMU to fix remaining issue, based on package proposed for sponsorship by
original maintainer:
* Bug fix: "plplot FTBFS due to HDF5 transition", thanks to Thibaut
Paumard (Closes: #760943) (new patch: dont-check-for-hdf5_h)
[Andrew Ross <>]
* New upstream version (closes: #740085, #707268, #713309, #736392, #747053,

* debian/patches/octave_3.8_support.diff: Fix some issues with octave 3.8 
support (backport from upstream). Also remove obsolete continuation 
markers to suppress octave warnings.
* debian/rules, debian/ Use xvfb-run to run cmake since 
auto-detection of tk components requires an X11 display and may fail for 
autobuilders. Add the required build dependencies on xvfb, xauth and 
* debian/ Update to reflect changes in how the 
plplot version is stored in the upstream source. 
* debian/rules, debian/ Update arch-indep build dependencies and 
remove references to postscript version of documentation to reflect 
changes to the way documentation is built.
* debian/ Update build dependencies to use wxwidgets-3.0 (closes:
#749488) and gnat-4.9 (closes: #728152)
* debian/rules: Add -source and -target options to javac command line. Fixes 
lintian warning.
* debian/ Bump standards version to 3.9.5. Fixes lintian warning.
