 miro (1.0-1ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
   * Merge from Debian unstable (LP: #162310).  Remaining Ubuntu changes:
     + debian/control:
       - libxul-dev -> firefox-dev
       - DebianMaintainerField
       - Provide real transitional democracyplayer package
     + debian/pyversions
       - 2.4 -> 2.5
     + debian/rules
       - Use pyversions rather than hardcoding 2.4
   * New upstream version fixes invalid mime file (LP: #150851, LP: #150674)
   * debian/rules:
     + Remove remaining hardcoded python version numbers;
       use DEB_PYTHON_COMPILE_VERSION everywhere.
   * debian/control:
     + Break the long depends lists into one depends per line for readability
     + Add libxine1-x dependency (LP: #159338)
     + Bump standards version; no changes needed.
   * debian/watch:
     + Add a shiny new watch file.
   * debian/patches/50_honour_xine_driver.patch
     + Make Miro honour the --xine-driver command line option (Debian: #453406)
   * debian/patches/60_xine_extractor_path.patch
   * debian/miro.install
     + Install xine_extractor into /usr/lib/miro rather than /usr/libexec,
       and make Miro look for it there (Debian: #454603, #451980, #452708,
 miro (1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release (Closes: #449131, #451207).
     + Fixed malformed miro.xml file (Closes: #445871, #443510).
     + Drop several patches which were applied upstream.
   * Add missing libxv-dev build-dependency (Closes: #442832, #443006, #443045).
   * Miro shipped with a menu file since the beginning (Closes: #443211).
     It's currently in the 'Applications/Network/Web News' category.
   * Fix small typo in German translation (Closes: #451333).
   * Cannot reproduce the following bugs with this release. Please
     reopen if you still experience problems:
     + Miro crashes on play (Closes: #443266).
     + Used to work; now segfaults on startup (Closes: #444484).
       Please try removing the ~/.miro directory if the problem persists.
     + Segfault on startup (quicktime related?) (Closes: #444051).
     + Cannot install Miro (Closes: #443045). Unlikely to be a real bug,
       probably stems from mixing packages from stable/unstable.
   * New 'Recommends: libxine1-ffmpeg'.
 miro ( unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release (Closes: #433752).
      + Democracy Player was renamed to Miro upstream, so we now
        use Provides/Conflicts/Replaces to transition existing installs.
      + Update the package description (and improve it a bit).
      + Now supports proxy settings (Closes: #426992). Miro uses the
        default GNOME proxy, which you can set/enable using gconf-editor.
   * Update debian/copyright.
   * Several improvements inspired by the Ubuntu version of the package:
     + Remove unneeded RPATH from (using chrpath).
     + debian/menu: Move package into 'Applications/Network/Web News'.
     + Drop shebang from, not needed (and silences lintian).
     + Only suggest python-psyco on [i386 hurd-i386 netbsd-i386 kfreebsd-i386].
   * miro.desktop improvements:
     + Drop 'Encoding=UTF-8', no longer necessary (lintian).
     + Change categories to 'AudioVideo;FileTransfer;News;P2P;TV;Player;'.
   * Cannot reproduce the following bugs using this release of Miro.
     Please feel free to reopen if it's still a problem.
     + "Crashes on stop playback" (Closes: #399098).
       According to
       this is indeed fixed in Miro
     + "Still crashes". Cannot reproduce with Miro (Closes: #438946).
     + "Crashes on end of video podcast" (Closes: 419207).
       Doesn't seem to happen with latest Miro anymore (I did see it before).
     + Installation error. Can't reproduce, no further infos from submitter,
       so I'm closing this. (Closes: #387248).
     + "Crash after pressing play". Cannot reproduce (Closes: #402264).
     + "Position slider doesn't respond to mouse click-and-drag sometimes".
       Cannot reproduce with latest Miro (Closes: #405248).
     + "Freezes On Start". Cannot reproduce with last Miro (Closes: #408032).
       Also, running two instances seems to work fine for me, but it's
       not really useful or recommended.
     + Problem with xine plugin. Doesn't look like a Democracy Player / Miro
       issue, but please reopen if it still happens (Closes: #420144).
