libconfig (1.5-0.4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* debian/rules:
+ Bump shlibs version to cater for new symbols added when building
with GCC 7.  Closes: #853517
+ Don't compress a 4.1 KB example file.  Closes: #717954
* debian/watch: rewrite pointing to github.  Closes: #825964
* debian/control:
+ Drop transitional packages libconfig8-dev and libconfig++8-dev.
Closes: #878652
+ Drop build-depends on g++, implied by build-essential and the version
requested is already old enough.
+ Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.1, no changes needed.
+ Mark libconfig-doc as Multi-Arch: foreign.
* Bump debhelper compat level to 10:
+ Drop --parallel, now default.
+ Drop --with autoreconf, now default (also drop the build-dep).
* Drop *-dbg packages in favour of automatic debug packages.
* debian/shlibs: remove, it only contains default stuff.
