 texlive-bin (2007-5ubuntu1) gutsy; urgency=low
   * Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining Ubuntu changes:
     - debian/patches/30_libpoppler: Update to the poppler 0.5 API.
   * debian/control: Update maintainer field.
 texlive-bin (2007-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * fix config file handling (Closes: #419826) [np]
     - fix a bug in which prevented any config file handling
     - fix another bug in which didn't install the config
       file handling in the postrm script
 texlive-bin (2007-4) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add patch 31_pdftex_gcc_ICE-on-alpha to work around a bug in newer
     gcc, thanks to Falk Hueffner <falk at> (closes: #419434) [fk]
   * Since we take over xdvi from tetex-bin, we remove its xdvi alternative
     in case it is present (closes: #419381) [fk]
   * Remove any format or log files in /var/lib/texmf/web2c, they must be
     in $engine subdirs now.  teTeX does not properly remove them (so this
     closes: #333767), and they cause strange failures with context (see
     #419059 and #418976) [fk]
   * Add patch 62_dvips_absolutepath_doc to document the change in dvips'
     file inclusion behavior in (closes: #418788)
 texlive-bin (2007-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * Disable the comparison of texmf.cnf introduced in the last version.
     It can still be run manually, but doing so at build time would make
     texlive-bin FTBFS each time tex-common updates its files in texmf.d
   * Fix the friday 13 bugs: A bad coincidence combined a serious bug in
     debhelper (#419060) produces buggy maintainer scripts in most
     texlive packages. The debhelper bug is fixed, this
     closes: #418981
   * add texlive-font-utils replaces tetex-bin << 2007 (Closes: #418995)
   * Add patch 51_fmtutil_keep_failedlog so that fmtutil will keep log
     files even if no format file is created at all [fk]
     (Closes: #419016)
 texlive-bin (2007-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * first upload of TeX Live 2007 to unstable
   * fix xdvi.cfg config file transfer bug (Closes: #415906) [np]
   * Added two scripts which allow to compare our upstream-provided
     texmf.cnf (which will not be used) with the texmf.cnf generated from
     tex-common's snippets, and let the build fail if both show other than
     the known differences.  This is run in the clean and build targets and
     allows to track upstream changes.
     In order to build on non-clean systems, export
     DEBIAN_NOCHECK_TEXMFCNF=true (or, actually, anything nonzero)
   * replace links of odvicopy.1 and odvitype.1 to the respective
     man pages without o with a minimal manpage (Closes: #417274) [np]
   * drop updated collection-binextra.tpm and bin-dvipos.tpm
     into the source package tosolve the missing dvipos problem. [np]
   * Fix missing build dependency on tex-common >= 1.3, thanks to Yannick
     Roehlly for spotting this. [np]
   * texlive-base-bin now suggests gs (or variants), postscript-viewers and
     pdf viewers. [np] (Closes: #414473)
   * do not compress documentation pdf files
 texlive-bin (2007-1) experimental; urgency=low
   * new upstream release
   * Major changes:
     - now includes XeTeX (new package texlive-xetex)
     - pdfTeX 1.40
     - MetaPost 1.0
     - the Debian packages no longer include ConTeXt, but depend on the
       separate context package instead.
     - Totally reworked Debian packaging, in particular the Perl scripts.
     - TeX Live now replaces teTeX and provides dummy packages for the
     - configuration files from /etc/texmf/texlive have been moved to
       the TDS-locations below /etc/texmf
   * Patches:
     - Move from dpatch to quilt
     - update patch 30_libpoppler to the new pdftex.  This needs to be
       extended to patch xetex as well!
     - Drop patches 15_fmtutil_metapost_fix, 20_xpdf3.01pl1,
       21b_pdftex_cjkfonts_overflow, 51_fmtutil_tempdir_in_texinputs
       (applied upstream), 52_feynmf-perl-sec-fix (no longer included)
     - all other patches unfuzzied (sometimes manually)
   * Add patch 01_tmp_configure_without_installextra to bypass texlinks,
     fmtutil and updmap invocations at build time [FK]
   * include teTeXs perl script for /usr/bin/xdvi which supports compressed
     dvi files (Closes: #412611) [NP]
