This is an interactive generative art application to evolve
images/textures/patterns/animations through an iterative process of random
mutation and user-selection driven evolution. This process is also often
referred to as "evolutionary art" or "genetic art". If you like lava lamps,
and still think the Mandelbrot set is cool, this could be the software for

evolvotron (0.6.3-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add patch to sort file listings in .pro files to hopefully gain some
more reproducibility. Hint by Daniel Shahaf, thanks!
2016-06-25 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
evolvotron (0.6.3-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Extend support-parallel-building.patch to also add dependencies on
libfunction.a. Hopefully fixes FTBFS on multiple architectures.
2016-06-24 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
evolvotron (0.6.3-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Enable all hardening build flags.
* Update Homepage header and URL in debian/copyright to new upstream
website respectively SF download page. (Reported by DUCK.)
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 3.9.8.
* Switch Vcs-* headers to currently recommended URLs.
* Convert debian/copyright to machine-readable DEP5 format, update
copyright years and reflect that the upstream license has changed to
GPL-3+ at some point in the past.
* Add patch to fix compilation with GCC6. (Closes: #811660)
* Enable parallel building; patch main.pro to support this.
* Extend fix-spelling.patch by further misspellings found by lintian.
2014-05-28 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
evolvotron (0.6.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes)
* Bump debhelper compatibility to 9
+ Update versioned debhelper build-dependency accordingly
+ Drop rebuilding binaries with manually set flags
* Simplify debian/rules:
+ Rebuild Makefile unconditionally
+ Use "dh_auto_install" and "dh_install" instead of calling "make
install" and "cp" manually
+ Finally switch to a minimal dh-style debian/rules file
* Fix lintian warning desktop-entry-lacks-keywords-entry.
2013-03-09 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
evolvotron (0.6.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release. Upstream now ships pre-generated documentation
(Closes: #699037) which was previously generated at build time.
+ No more remove documentation files with dh_clean
+ Also patch misspellings in the shipped documentation
+ No more patch and call upstream's configure script, it's a no-op now
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no changes)
* Remove "rm -f build-stamp" from debian/rules, it's done by dh_clean
2012-12-06 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
evolvotron (0.6.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
+ Add new build-dependency on libboost-program-options-dev
+ Drop patch fix-typo; fixed upstream
+ CHANGES renamed to NEWS: update debian/rules
* Adopt the package (Closes: #691820)
* Add Vcs-* headers
* debian/rules cleanup:
+ Use dh_auto_clean
+ Use debian/clean instead of manual rm
+ Remove some blank lines
+ Replace target "config.status" (which doesn't get built by the
non-autotools configure script) by "Makefile". This prevents
multiple build runs and makes evolvotron building again on
ia64. (Closes: #683010)
* Support hardening build flags
+ Remove old DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS parsing
+ Patch configure to no more call qmake directly
+ Use dh_auto_configure and dh_auto_build
+ Pass CPPFLAGS in CXXFLAGS and CFLAGS as qmake seems to ignore CPPFLAGS
+ Rebuild binaries with proper build flags as qmake doesn't seem to
pass all of them properly everywhere
+ Add build-dependency on dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1~)
* Add patch to fix some misspellings found by lintian.
* Update years and package maintainers in debian/copyright
* Apply wrap-and-sort

* debian/watch: Added.
[ Axel Beckert ]
