libao (1.2.2+20180113-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Cherry pick upstream fix for the pulse plugin, and proposed upstream patch
to better sanity check all memory allocations.
* Don't build the esd plugin anymore, the GNOME maintainers want to kill off
esound for Buster.  Closes: #856082
* Build for multiarch.  Closes: #638741
2016-10-30 - Ron Lee <>
libao (1.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Build the sndio plugin, now that it's included in Debian too.
It's not entirely clear whether "provide every possible plugin on every
platform" really is a good thing to be doing here.  The value of libao
is that it's portable for applications, not that it offers an infinite
variety of ways to do that, but let's see what happens.  Closes: #802473
* Ignore unknown config options when using pulse.  Closes: #650301
2014-08-30 - Ron Lee <>
libao (1.1.0-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use linux-any instead of negating specific other arches.  Closes: #634625
* Regenerate build system files, mostly to pull in a later libtool.m4
which has fixes for building the ppc64le architecture.  Closes: #752022
2012-06-02 - Ron Lee <>
libao (1.1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Adopting this package with the blessing of John.
Leaving him in uploaders because he's busy, not disinterested, but putting
myself in the hotseat for any reports related to this one now.
* End the grief with roar.
Too many people now have been through all the stages of Denial, Anger,
Bargaining, and Depression with it, so it's time to accept the only
sensible course of direct action that remains to preserve sanity.
Closes: #667039
* Pull upstream update to libao.conf.5, Closes: #636917
2012-02-15 - Alessio Treglia <>
libao (1.1.0-1.1) unstable; urgency=low

2010-04-13 - John Francesco Ferlito <>
libao (1.0.0-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Need to conflict on libao2 due to /etc/libao.conf stupidness.
* Added quiet option to libao.conf since libraries shouldn't print error
messages by default. (Closes: #590961)
* Added quilt support and debian/README.source
* Add upstream patch for compiling on BSD with sndio. (Closes: #592013)

* Bumped standards version to 3.8.4.
* Added source/format with version 1.0
