xfstt (1.7-8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix abort when listing fonts due to fortify support. The current code
    does not pose any real problem as the overwritten variable gets
    initialized later on, although the fix makes it correct and future-proof.
    Thanks to Erik Devriendt <erik.devriendt at siemens.com>. (Closes: #583202)

xfstt (1.7-7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Switch to source format “3.0 (quilt)”.
  * Fix copyright notice for Vietnamese translation.
  * Now using Standards-Version 3.8.4 (no changes needed).
  * Create the unix socket directory with mode 1777 regardless of umask.
    Which was making xfs not create its socket file due to it running
    unprivileged. (Closes: #579907)
  * Fix segfaults due to font open errors:
    - On error in open() set absbase to 0, so that openError() can be aware
      there's been an error. This happens usually on broken symlinks.
      Thanks to Edward Welbourne <eddy at opera.com>. (Closes: #500724, #559142)
    - Handle mmap() errors, so that we don't end up accessing invalid memory.
  * Fix aborts when building with fortify support due to its bound checks.
    The current code is perfectly valid, but the compiler is too strict.
    Thanks to Niall Creech <niallcreech at googlemail.com>. (Closes: #569316)
