 aqsis      - suite of applications implementing the RenderMan Interface
Closes: 368070
 aqsis (1.2.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer (closes: #368070).
   * New upstream release.  Main changes are:
     - Various small changes to support building for x86_64 systems.
     - Added a new command line option: -echoapi will echo all RI API calls to the console.
     - Added a new command line option: -mpdump will dump all micropolygons to a custom binary file.
     - Implement the type 'facevertex'.
     - Add support for RiGeometry 'bunny'.
     - Add preliminary support for blobbies.
     - Add some more useful information output to the DSO shadeop search to enable better debugging of the DSO loading process.
     - Add a new tool 'miqser' (mixer) for processing RIB files.
     - Introduce a mitchell filterpixel.
     - Implement autoshadow support. Aqsis can now render shadow maps for chosen lights automatically.
     - Improve the speed of shadow and ambient occlusion sampling. Occlusion in particular is orders of magnitude faster.
     - Add support for OpenEXR, both output using a new display, and input using a converter plugin.
     - Added bitmap, tga, png and OpenEXR support.
     - Improved environment mapping. Directly compatible with others renderer's latlong/cubic tiff files
     - Added a -res option to aqsis to change resolution at commandline.
     - Added a flexible catch all option to the aqsis command line options: -option "<any RIB request>".
     - Implemented the new Condition RI C Binding. It supports math and logical arithmetic for several variable types.
     - Implemented new sampling technique.
     - Implemented layered shader support.
     - Improved motion blurred points handling.
     - Improved AOV output quantization.
     - Added a shader for adding a Film Grain effect.
     - Added a new noise type.
     - Fixed lots of warnings, crashes and leaks.
   * debian/control:
     - Removed cpp from aqsis' Depends.
     - Removed libargparse-dev from several places.
     - Removed Replaces: aqsis-libs-dev in aqsis-libsc2a (from 0.7.10-2).
     - Revamped Build-Depends, as now scons is used and several things were
       dropped from the dependency chain.
     - Bumped Standards-Version to 3.7.2.
   * debian/rules:
     - Removed DH_COMPAT in favor of debian/compat, and bumped to 5
       ( only bumped it to 4).
     - Rewrote the build system, as aqsis switched from autotools to SCons.
     - Added -V to dh_makeshlibs, thus resolving duplicate dependencies on
     - Set executable bit of several scripts in aqsis package.
   * Dropped GCC 4.1 patches, as they did not longer apply.
   * Added a lot of information to debian/copyright.
