PrBoom+ is an enhanced source port of the classic 3D first-person
shooter game Doom, first released by id Software in 1993. It uses
the Simple Direct Media layer (SDL) library and features an optional
OpenGL renderer. It is based on PrBoom, MBF and LxDoom, which in turn
are based on TeamTNT's Boom, a freely available port of Doom for DOS.
In addition to PrBoom's features, PrBoom+ offers uncapped framerate,
variable gamespeed, re-record, walkcam, chasecam, full mouselook,
FOV, and other features without loss of compatibility with the
original Doom.
PrBoom+ requires game data to run. Free game data is available in the
freedoom package. Commercial game data can be packaged using
game-data-packager. PrBoom+ supports all flavors of Doom, including
The Ultimate Doom, Doom 2 and Final Doom as well as Chex Quest and HACX.

* New upstream SVN snapshot.
* Disable silent rules.
* Add icons in SVG, PNG and XPM format, add icon entry to menu file,
add desktop file (Closes: #726856).
* Do not disable support for helper dogs anymore, we are using the
free "baby worm demon" variant based on sprites and sounds from Freedoom.
[ Jonathan Dowland ]

* Update my name in the control file

prboom-plus (2: unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream SVN snapshot.
+ Mouse look now is available in software mode.
+ Added a crosshair. Three different crosshair graphics are for choice:
cross, angle and dot. Extra features are changing crosshair colors
according to the player's health and/or on sight of a target.
* Add Build-Depends for all libraries we depend on, do not rely on libsdl*-dev
to pull them in.
* Demote freedoom et al. to Recommends to avoid circular dependencies.
* Fix the sound font file name for musescore-soundfont-gm and prefer that
package over freepats for usage with the fluidsynth MIDI player.

prboom-plus (2: unstable; urgency=low
* Upstream SVN snapshot of the prboom-plus codebase
+ Support up to eight joystick buttons instead of just four,
the fifth and sixth buttons are mapped to strafe left and right
(Closes: #606231, #612429).
[ Jon Dowland ]
* Initial packaging, based on prboom (Closes: #559132, #690905).
* add a format specifier to a sprintf call
[ Fabian Greffrath ]
* Add myself to Uploaders.
* The "--disable-i386-asm" configure flag is gone.
* Append to LDFLAGS instead of overriding them.
* Simplify the override_dh_auto_configure rule.
* Add libdumb1-dev, libfluidsynth-dev, libportmidi-dev
and libsdl-image1.2-dev to Build-Depends.
* Add a symlink for the man page as well.
* Remove obsolete debian/prboom+.files file.
* Remove debian/prboom+.manpages, prboom-plus.6 is already
installed by the build system.
* Fix up binary and package names in debian/prboom+.{menu,prerm,postinst}.
* Avoid redundant installation of docs.
* Mention PrBoom+ in the extended package description.
* Move "boom-wad | game-data-packager | doom-wad" to Depends, since we
must have an IWAD in order to start the game.
* Change default MIDI player to the OPL2 emulator, so "freepats" can get
demoted to Suggests.
* Add debian/README.source.
* Provide a dummy package for the transition from prboom to prboom-plus.
* Split prboom-plus-game-server into a separate package, prboom-plus
links against way more libraries (Closes: #528057).
* Simplify maintainer scripts.
* Suggest mkvtoolnix, vorbis-tools and x264 for video capturing and
change default Ogg Vorbis encoder name to oggenc.
* Shorten and (hopefully) clarify package descriptions.
