ogre (1.7.3-6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Use always "versioned" directory names, like /usr/share/OGRE-1.7.3 and
    /usr/lib/MULTIARCH_TRIPLET/OGRE-1.7.3 instead of plain .../OGRE.  In this
    way several versions of the library can be installed at once, as it's
    usually the case with shared libraries but it was not with OGRE until now
    (Closes: #653527).
  * Add missing Build-Depend on "dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1~)" (instead of the
    suggested .0 of the bug report), and substituting DEB_BUILD_MULTIARCH for
    DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH (Closes: #658015).  The former was used by a propagated
    mistake.  Thanks Sam Morris for the notice and the patch (although I didn't
    use the patch provided because I had already changed the more problematic
    parts with a better solution).  Please reopen if there are still remaining
  * Remove /etc/OGRE*/plugins.cfg, according to upstream it's not present in
    other systems, and indeed is more appropriate for applications to define
    what plugins they want to use (or rely only on code, not .cfg files, for
    - Remove the Debian script /usr/bin/update-ogre-plugins (and its manpage),
      it's of no use now.
    - Remove the template for plugins.cfg
  * Remove /etc/OGRE/plugins.cfg when uninstalling (or upgrading and moving the
    file elsewhere, as it happened for a few versions), if the one installed in
    the system was unmodified.  Thanks Sam Morris for the report and the
    suggested fix (Closes: #656997)
  * Remove cruft provided in the past along with the package but not used for a
    few releases/years:
    - LightwaveConverter.1: binary not present since very long
    - ogre-get-orig-source-1.6.4: script obsolete and unnecessary since with 1.7
      -- it's been clarified that the documentations and the samples are DFSG

ogre (1.7.3-5) unstable; urgency=high

  * Urgency set to high because the version in testing (1.7.3-3) is quite
    broken, and will not work for most people.
  * Moving configuration and plugins in directories named just "OGRE" to
    "OGRE-${VERSION}", so actually several versions of the library can be
    installed at the same time.
  * Fixing paths in the shipped plugins.cfg for the new location of the plugins
    in multi-arch environment, including RPATH for the plugins using it.
  * Remove debian/extras/ogre-plugins-config.in and ogre-plugins-config.1
    (corresponding man page).  As far as I know they were never used, and
    introducing such a tool creates more harm than good in my opinion
    (divergence from upstream and needlessly doing things ad-hoc that should be
    managed by the users of the library).

ogre (1.7.3-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Disabling some hardening and linking options, they were causing severe
    problems for some users with the application aborting during initialisation
    (Launchpad bug LP: #913523), confirmed in Debian.  I think that the main
    culprit is "-Wl,-Bsymbolic", although other hardening flags were disabled
    because of compilation failures after disabling the previous one (+pie).
