dpkg (1.16.10) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Fix typos in 1.16.9 changelog entry. Closes: #691954
    Thanks to Nicolás Alvarez <>.
  * Add missing @LIBLZMA_LIBS@ to Libs.Private in
  * Do not use an undefined va_list variable in dpkg_put_errno().
  * Abort installation if we cannot set the security context for a file.
  * Fix OpenPGP armored signature parsing, to be resilient against doctored
    input, including source package control files. Closes: #695919
  * Make sure the OpenGPG armor contains a signature block, even on EOF.
  * Do not accept Armor Header Lines inside a paragraph.
  * Do not abort dselect when multiarch is detected, as that only makes
    users downgrade and hold on an older version w/ worse multiarch support.
  * Fix warning in Dpkg::Source::Archive with «perl -w» due to redefinition
    of getcwd() by removing unused POSIX modules usage. Closes: #700978

  [ Updated programs translations ]
  * Esperanto (Felipe Castro).
  * Spanish (Javier Fernández-Sanguino).
  * Vietnamesea (Trần Ngọc Quân). Closes: #692100

  [ Updated scripts translations ]

    Thanks to Filipus Klutiero. Closes: #698530
  * Fix typos in French translation of scripts.

dpkg (1.16.9) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * Fix dpkg-source regression in "3.0 (quilt)" source packages while
    unapplying patches that remove all files in a directory. Closes: #683547
  * Fix segfault in field format parsing on empty strings, affecting
    «dpkg-query -W -f ''» and «dpkg-deb -W --showformat=''». LP: #1035512
  * Fix dpkg's French usage string which was missing the final “s“ in
    --print-foreign-architectures. Closes: #685863

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Use “statoverrides” instead of “statusoverrides” in dpkg-statoverride.
    Closes: #686995
  * Comment out dpkg(1) documentation about disabled --command-fd option.
    Closes: #685677
  * Cleanup dpkg-divert unit-test environment to avoid build failures.
    Closes: #687656
  * Fix update-alternatives test suite to behave correctly on non-Debian
    binary paths. Known to be affecting at least Gentoo and Mac OS X.
  * Do not leak subcall command arguments in update-alternatives.
  * Fix segfault on update-alternatives when passing --slave without any
    action at all. LP: #1037431
  * Fix memory leak in dpkg filesavespackage().
  * Do not print garbage (or worse) on dpkg shared conffile debug output.
  * Use a hash instead of a ref to a hash for keys() in Dpkg::BuildFlags
    get_feature_areas(). This causes compilation failures with older perl
    versions, which can be an issue with partial upgrades.
  * Fix filter subpattern debug output format string to print an actual
    value instead of just blanks.
  * Ignore trailing filter subpattern slashes on reinclusion comparison.
    This makes sure to reinclude directories previously excluded so that
    contained files marked for inclusion do not fail to unpack due to a
    missing directory. Closes: #688416
  * Do not consider obsolete conffiles as actively owned by the package.
    This ensures conffile entries are not mishandled nor mixed up when
    configuring packages owning the non-obsolete conffiles. Closes: #689836
    Based on a patch by Andreas Beckmann <>.
  * Properly mark in the database obsolete conffiles on package replaces.
  * Sync the Conffiles field values for all package instances. Because
    only the first package instance being configured will have a *.dpkg-new
    conffile available to be processed, the subsequent ones need to use the
    hash from the previously processed entries.
  * Fix logic for previously configured conffiles, so that the shared
    conffile checks actually work on reinstallation. Closes: #684776
  * Avoid info database corruption and bogus accesses on unknown format
    values, by always reading the format file and validating it.
  * Clarify that the most probable reason for multiarch database
    inconsistencies is due to upgrades from unofficial dpkg versions.
  * Only satisfy a dependency on a “Multi-Arch: foreign” if arch-unqualified.
  * Take architecture into account in virtual packages on remove and
    configure dpkg actions. Closes: #683411
  * Update update-alternatives --query format and examples in man page to
    match the implementation.
  * Add two missing 3rd person ‘s’ in dpkg-gensymbols(1). Closes: #689863
    Thanks to Paul Menzel <>.
  * Fix regression on old-style binNMUs for packages that specify an
    explicit binary version to dpkg-gencontrol, by always fixing up the
    source version. Closes: #690823

dpkg (1.16.6) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Do not translate SE Linux context to human readable form while unpacking,
    as that might cause the operation to fail if the mcstransd daemon
    stopped running during the transaction. Closes: #679641
    Thanks to Russell Coker <>.

dpkg (1.16.5) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * dpkg-source will now clean up after a failed application of a quilt
    patch. Closes: #652970
    And it will display a message explaining the most likely cause of
    failure (patch applying with fuzz).
  * When dpkg-source regenerates the automatic patch (with formats "2.0"
    or "3.0 (quilt)") it will keep the current patch header to avoid
    losing changes made by the maintainer.
  * Modify dpkg-source --commit to auto-whitelist modified binary files.
    That way the same command can be used whatever kind of upstream files
    has been modified.
  * dpkg-source now supports a new option --no-unapply-patches to force
    patches to be kept applied after build (used by formats "2.0" and "3.0
    (quilt)"). Closes: #643043

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Add a dpkg-buildflags --status action to describe the flag settings.
    Thanks to Bernhard R. Link <>. Closes: #664058
  * Add support for “binary-only” key-value option in changelogs, to allow
    marking changelog entries as part of a binary only upload, having a
    different version from the source package. Closes: #440094, #672723
  * Minimize source architecture list on «dpkg-source -b» by removing
    architectures already covered by architecture wildcards. Closes: #675333
  * Do not assume $ENV{'HOME'} is defined in Dpkg::Source::Package.
    Thanks to Niels Thykier <>. Closes: #677631
  * Document in more detail in deb(5) the supported ar archive format.
  * Document in deb-src-control(5) the “Private-” field prefix.
  * Add new start-stop-daemon --no-close option to disable closing file
    descriptors on --background. Closes: #627333, #646425
  * Switch source compression to xz.
  * Detect ar header fields truncation due to too long member names or too
    large member sizes. Closes: #678933
  * Add new dpkg-query --control-list and --control-show commands, which
    replace the now deprecated --control-path.
  * Print master and slave alternarive link names in update-alternatives
    --query and always print alternative link in --config. Closes: #679010
  * Cleanup and clarify buffer I/O error reporting. Closes: #621763
  * Avoid full stop and double newline at the end of errors and warnings.
    Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <>. Closes: #624000
  * Change all programs to accept -? instead of -h for help output.
  * Add support for specific arch-qualified dependencies. Closes: #676232
    Thanks to Thibaut Girka <>.
  * Accept “:native” arch-qualified Build-Dependencies. Closes: #558095
    Thanks to Thibaut Girka <>.
  * Do not use undefined values returned form deps_parse() in dpkg-shlibdeps.
    Closes: #640676
  * Add an Architecture column to «dpkg-query -l» before the Description
    column. Suggested by Jonathan Nieder <>. Closes:

dpkg ( unstable; urgency=low

  * On «update-alternatives --install» only warn for now on out of range
    priorities and clamp the values, as there seems to be packages using
    priorities > INT_MAX, which although bogus as they were previously
    overflowing the int used to store them, that would cause installation
    failures when upgrading from squeeze. This will be reverted to an
    error after wheezy. Closes: #676874

dpkg (1.16.4) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Deprecate compressing .deb files with lzma, by making dpkg-deb issue a
    warning, as the format has several deficiencies that have been addressed
    by upstream in xz. Although unpacking will be kept being supported to
    handle existing lzma compressed .deb files.

    Suggested by Sven Joachim <>. Closes: #391818
  * Add “gcc | c-compiler” to libdpkg-perl Suggests, due to Dpkg::Arch usage.
    Closes: #671198
  * Do not mask PIE from dpkg-buildflags on m68k, it appears to work now.
    Requested by Thorsten Glaser <>.
  * Remove deprecated support for PGP style signing command interface from
  * Remove obsolete --udeb dpkg-scanpackages option.
  * Add arm64 support to cputable. Closes: #672408
    Thanks Wookey <>.
  * Check parsed integers for invalid or no digit errors in start-stop-daemon
    and update-alternatives.
  * Check all parsed integers for out of range errors; i.e. that no negative
    values are allowed if not appropriate, and that no overflows occur.
    Closes: #580038
  * Switch start-stop-daemon(8) man page examples from /var/run to /run.
  * Do not obscure Dpkg::Source::Package ‘require’ errors with custom
    error message. Thanks to Thomas Adam <> 
    Jonathan Nieder <>.
  * Add new Dpkg::Substvars::set_as_used() member function.
  * Rename Dpkg::Substvars no_warn() member function to mark_as_used(), keep
    the old name aliased to the new one producing a deprecation warning.
  * Add support for Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Arch fields, and
    a new -A option to dpkg-checkbuilddeps. Closes: #629480
    Thanks to Roger Leigh <>.
  * Add support for “none” as a valid dpkg-deb compression strategy value.
    Closes: #674711
  * Clarify in dpkg(1) that the «dpkg -l» example only lists installed
    packages, and that to list available packages «dpkg-query --load-avail»
    has to be used instead. Closes: #673305
  * Clarify also in the dpkg(1) man page (already present in the dpkg.cfg(5)
    man page) the valid filenames for /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/ fragment files.

  * Fix start-stop-daemon to not follow symlinks when creating pidfiles.
    Thanks to Carsten Hey <>. Closes: #675918
  * Refactor the file locking logic into a new Dpkg::File module, and move
    the libfile-fcntllock-perl dependency from dpkg-dev to libdpkg-perl.
  * Demote the libfile-fcntllock-perl Depends to a Recommends by falling back
    to use flock based locking, because it being an XS module makes building
    a new perl package bumping the perl ABI impossible, as both packages
    become uninstallable. Thanks to Dominic Hargreaves <>.
    Closes: #675947
  * Put an & before field_capitalize() calls in Dpkg::Control::Fields to
    fix a usage before declaration warning with perl 5.16. Closes: #676262

    trigger handling for conffiles and dpkg-trigger invocations.
    Closes: #675613, #676061, #676062, #676107, #676118, #676122
