    2016-01-08 - Tobias Frost <> amoeba (1.1-29.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * Fix FTBFS with libpng16 -- missing include string.h (Closes: #742559) * Add Misc:Depends to the binary package (fix lintian warning)

    2015-05-01 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-29) unstable; urgency=medium * 26-alsa-support.diff: Only try to compile ALSA support if the headers have new enough API; will prevent us from trying to compile against OSS4's ALSA emulation (which has an ancient version) on non-Linux platforms. Fixes FTBFS on Hurd and FreeBSD. (We still link against the library, although then uselessly on those platforms.)

    2015-04-29 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-28) unstable; urgency=high * Add missing build-dependency on libasound2-dev; fixed FTBFS. (Closes: #783523)

    2015-04-19 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-27) unstable; urgency=medium * debian/patches/25-libpng-1.5-fixes.diff: Remove a stray variable declaration that causes compilation problems with some versions of libpng. * 26-alsa-support.diff: New patch, support ALSA as well as OSS (including support for multiple sound cards if you are using the GTK+ GUI).

    2012-05-17 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-26) unstable; urgency=low * 24-build-on-kfreebsd.diff: Added missing __linux__ -> __unix__ replacements in opengl/glwindow.h; should fix building on non-Linux platforms. (Closes: #673201)

    2012-05-14 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-25) unstable; urgency=low * debian/patches/25-libpng-1.5-fixes.diff: New patch, fixes compilation with libpng 1.5 or newer. (Closes: #650593)

    2012-04-14 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-24) unstable; urgency=low * Remove obsolete file debian/patches/debian-changes-1.1-21 (see changelog for 1.1-22). * 24-build-on-kfreebsd.diff: New patch, based on work by Christoph Egger; should make Amoeba compile and work on kFreeBSD.

    2011-11-23 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-23) unstable; urgency=low * Build-Depend on libjpeg-dev instead of libjpeg62-dev. (Closes: #649760)

    2011-02-21 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-22) unstable; urgency=low * Remove URL to Underscore from the description, as the domain no longer exists. (Closes: #556401) * 23-link-with-libdl.diff: Link with -ldl to avoid FTBFS with GNU gold. Patch from Ubuntu. (Closes: #556751) * Fold debian-changes-1.1-21 into 22-tighten-up-non-const-chars.diff, where it was meant to be all along. * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.1 (no changes needed).

    2010-05-06 - Steinar H. Gunderson <> amoeba (1.1-21) unstable; urgency=low * Switch to dpkg-source 3.0 (quilt) format. * Add debian/source/format file. * Remove everything related to quilt from debian/rules file. * Remove quilt build-dependency. * Refer explicitly to GPL-2 in the debian/copyright file. * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.4 (no changes needed). * 20-fix-invalid-conversion.diff: Don't write to a char* returned by strchr() on a const char *. Based on a patch from Ubuntu. * 21-dont-link-uselessly.diff: Don't add -lXext -lvorbis -logg explicitly during linking, as we don't need any of their symbols directly. * 22-tighten-up-non-const-chars.diff: Tighten up the use of non-const char pointers in prototypes, so that we don't make any assumptions that string literals can be used as (non-const) char*. Removes a slew of warnings, and probably FTBFS at some future point.
