Pybik is an interactive, graphical, single player puzzle about the cube
invented by Ernő Rubik. Besides the cube the program can handle towers and
bricks (non cubic puzzles). Pybik also has solvers, pretty patterns and a
collection of various moves. The cube can be manipulated with the mouse or
keyboard. You can change the colors or images on the faces of the cube.

* Cryptographic verification of upstream packages
* Added DEP12 upstream metadata
* Removed patches (included upstream)
* Added patch to fix option for pickle protocol

pybik (1.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ Martin Pitt ]
* Use xvfb in autopkgtest. (Closes: #717126)
* Only run the "min" and "preferences" tests in autopkgtest, as the full
test suite takes way too long (and might not even succeed) under xvfb.
[ Scott Kitterman ]
* Add python3:Depends for pybik-bin since it builds python3 version specific
* Override dh_python3 and call dh_python3 a second time to look in
pybik-bin's private dir
* Add build-dep on dh-python (>= 1.20130901-1) for pybuild (this is the
lowest version that will generate correct depends for pybik bin)
[ B. Clausius ]
* Switch to pybuild
* Add menu file
* Added patches from upstream:
+ Heavily reduce the size of the binary package pybik:
+ Fix test for newer Python version:
* Updated Standards-Version to 3.9.5, no changes needed

- improved lighting effect
+ New and updated translations
* Updated for Python 2 -> Python 3 transition
* Pybik no longer works with PySide
* Recommends python3-icu
* Added autopkgtest

pybik (1.0.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ B. Clausius ]
* Upload to unstable (Closes: #710606)
* Change binary package compression to xz
[ Jakub Wilk ]
* Use canonical URIs for Vcs-* fields.

+ GtkGlExt -> QtOpenGL (PySide or PyQt4)
* Suggests python-opengl (unusual usage) and gconf2 (config transition)
* Splittet into an arch dependent and an arch independent package
(increased size and build time)
* Enabled parallel build for the architecture independent part
* Install autogenerated README file without install paragraph
* Replace the license file (displayed in the about box) by a link
to usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-3 and add lintian override
