2018-01-28 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (2.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ Support revision-based matching in microcode update filters
+ Support exact --scan-system as a runtime option (before, it was a
compile-time option and disabled in Debian builds)
2017-08-28 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (2.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ README: update for mixed dat and bin Intel releases
+ README: add an example of microcode with multiple sigs
+ iucode_tool: fix microcode count when selecting extended signatures
+ build tooling changes
* debian/docs: ship upstream NEWS file.
* debian/control: build-depend on newer automake.
Upstream now requires automake 1.13 or newer.
* debian/copyright: add licenses for m4/
* debian/copyright: use https for format URL
* debian/{watch,upstream/signing-key.asc}: support upstream signature checking
* debian/control: bump standards version to 4.1.0

iucode-tool (2.1.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Upload to unstable
2017-02-15 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (2.1.2-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ iucode_tool: compare payloads of similar (not just duplicate) MCUs
+ iucode_tool: skip small files as if empty in the -tr loader
* Target experimental due to the freeze for the Debian "stretch" release
2017-01-13 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (2.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=high
* New upstream release:
+ Fix heap buffer overflow on -tr loader (CVE-2017-0357)
* debian/copyright: update for new upstream release
2016-11-10 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
iucode-tool (2.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
+ The early initramfs cpio archives created by iucode_tool are now
deterministic.  Instead of the current system time, the date of
the latest microcode included in the early initramfs will be used.
+ There is a new option to minimize the size of the early initramfs:
--mini-earlyfw.  This option causes iucode_tool to create a non-
standard cpio archive which is typically 736 bytes smaller.
WARNING: the microcode data file might not be visible to the
regular initramfs when this mode is used.
+ iucode-tool will now create valid early initramfs archives past
year 2038.
+ Change the strategy to add defensive padding to the early-initramfs
archive: add an empty directory entry to the cpio archive in order
to force the correct 16-byte alignment for the microcode data by
default.  For --mini-earlyfs, keep the old strategy of appending
extra NULs to the end of the microcode data file name.
* debian/control: correct build-depends versioning of autoconf, automake.
Correct the minimum required versions of autoconf and automake, which
were bumped by upstream version 2.0.
* debian/compat, rules, control: modernize and enable full hardening
+ update debian/rules copyright date
+ switch to dh-based simplified debian/rules (debhelper v9)
+ opt-in to full hardening for PIE and bindnow
As a side-effect, we now fully honor DEB_*_STRIP, etc.
* debian/watch: add uscan watch file.
Add a debian/watch uscan version 3 watchfile to automatically check the
newest iucode-tool release tarball version, using the "latest" branch of
the iucode/releases gitlab project.
* debian/changelog: fix typos on older entires.
* debian/copyright: switch to DEP-5 format.
