    2017-09-17 - Carsten Schoenert <> kicad (4.0.7+dfsg1-1) unstable; urgency=medium * [c306ee5] New upstream version 4.0.7+dfsg1 (Closes: #875942, #841539) * [9ef473f] adjust to recent GH API + Use a improved curl call to catch up all footprint related repositories on GitHub. KiCad has now over 100 Repositories, but the GH API allows only so query 100 per call. Updating the list of repositories to download accordingly. * [74df4fe] README.Debian: adding info about changes in 4.0.7 + Update the list of changed/moved repos, adding information about the newly repositories. * [05d21ad] debian/control: move Maintainer to PKG Electronics Team + Let the KiCad packages move over to the PKG Electronix Team! The ML there has quite a wider coverage. Remove Richard from the Uploaders. Tanks go out to Richard for maintenance in the past years! * [bb2e680] debian/control: increase Standards-Version to 4.0.1 * [e655e36] rebuild patch queue from patch-queue branch + Refresh the patch queue, no functional changes. * [5145b7a] debian/rules: use DEB_* variables for entries from changelog + Let us use variables from /u/s/dpkg/, especially for picking version and date of the package. * [1addf7c] debian/copyright: reflect last changes and updates * [c4e6635] kicad-doc-id.doc-base: update due added kicad i18n + The manual for KiCad itself is now included for Indonesian. * [1aff1fb] kicad-common: symlink more renamed footprint libraries + Upstream modified again the footprint names, we need to add more symlinks to let existing installation find the new repositories by the old referenced name. * [ea4e7d5] kicad-common.install: not installing folder /u/s/mimelnk + Michael Biebl pointed to a useless installation of old mimelnk data, this is cruft as it was only valid until the KDE3 desktop environment. (Closes: #875527) * [7a1e05a] debian/control: drop B-D on quilt

    2017-06-19 - Carsten Schoenert <> kicad (4.0.6+dfsg1-1) unstable; urgency=medium [ Carsten Schoenert ] * [4d0ee6b] debian/rules: make dh_fixperms arch-depended (again) + kicad-common is depending on python2 so we need to ensure dh_fixperms for kicad-common is called within the arch-depend built. * [4608380] idf2vrml.1: fix syntax of the hyphen for option '-k' * [99b44a2] update footprint libraries for component tarball + Upstream has renamed and also added some libraries after the release of version 4.0.4. Related to the API of GitHub and more than 100 repositories in the KiCad organisation we need no adjust the collection of the footprint libraries. We still use a static list for the creation of the *.orig.tar.xz based on the changed API call. * [913d32a] New upstream version 4.0.6+dfsg1 * [4e62f6c] rebuild patch queue from patch-queue branch * [9ec8227] debian/control: update B-D after upstream changes * [8b0f985] adding new -doc package with Indonesian i18n + A new documentation package for Indonesian is available. Currently only for 'Getting Started in KiCad'. * [a08cede] README.Debian: adding README for Debian specific remarks * [c00487e] debian/rules: set permissions for *.kicad_mod files * [9bf9f8c] kicad-common: symlink renamed footprint libraries + Due the changes within the upstream source we got also different content for kicad-common now. We added some symlinking to get backward compatibility for existing installations and user settings. (Closes: #859409, #860093) * [8de0b6d] autopkg: starting first autopkg test for footprint libs
