msttcorefonts (3.7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Print message that fonts are moved upon package removal
(closes: #737630).
* Remove any leftover defoma handling, since defoma has been
removed in 2011.
* Update to dh(1) sequencer, debhelper 11 and policy 4.1.3.
* Switch to source format 3.0 (native).
* Take some changes from Ubuntu diff. (Most of it we cannot
use since it depends on update-notifier, which is not
necessarily available in Debian.)

msttcorefonts (3.6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add Turkish translation, thanks Mert Dirik (closes: #757868).
* Update to policy 3.9.6, no changes.

msttcorefonts (3.5) unstable; urgency=low
* Mark Multi-Arch: foreign, thanks Scott Ritchie, Daniel Hartwig
(closes: #700684).
* Switch to debhelper 9. Update for policy 3.9.4 (no changes).
* Use maintscript support in dh_installdeb rather than writing out
dpkg-maintscript-helper commands by hand.  We now simply Pre-Depend on a
new enough version of dpkg rather than using 'dpkg-maintscript-helper
supports' guards, leading to more predictable behaviour on upgrades.
Thanks Colin Watson (closes: #659724).
* Proxy test failed when HTTP:// is given in uppercase. Thanks
Tobias Olsson (LP: #1072580).
* Show licence message when fonts actually installed (closes: #672259).
