xz-utils (5.2.2-1.3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Force a constant /bin/sh for installed scripts. This helps the build
be reproducible; /bin/sh on Debian is always POSIX. (Closes: #806331)

xz-utils (5.2.2-1.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.

* Non-maintainer upload.

xz-utils (5.1.1alpha+20120614-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Helmut Grohne ]
* Non-maintainer upload.
[ Colin Watson ]
* Remove build-dependency on perl; we use no non-trivial Perl modules so
the Essential perl-base is perfectly adequate, and an unadorned
build-dependency on perl is problematic for cross-building.
Closes: #697328.
2012-09-10 - Jonathan Nieder <>
xz-utils (5.1.1alpha+20120614-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Apply fixes from 5.1.2alpha.  Closes: #685220.
- liblzma: report a LZMA_DATA_ERROR when range encoded data starts
with a nonzero byte.  This is a sanity check to catch malformed
files that no known encoders produce.
- xz -v -v --list: Support for decompressing blocks with
zero-length uncompressed data was added in xz 5.0.2, not 5.0.3.
- xz.1: "xz --robot -v -v --list" gained a "minimum xz version to
decompress" field.
* xz-utils/README.Debian: Document differences from upstream.
Closes: #685217.
