Please DON'T do this. There are explanations of some changes above, but
you need to go to BTS to see each bug this release has closed. As it has
stated a lot of times, changelog is not a place for closing lists of
bugs without explanation.
Matthew, I am sure you intended to write a sentence before the braces
and I would really like to know what it was!

However, I have tested and the bug #170548
(libsdl1.2debian-all: [aalib frontend] keyboard arrows do not work)
is not fixed so I have no real choice but to reopen it.

I don't know about this.  You'll have to ask Lawrence, as he prepared
this release.  He is now CC'd on this reply.

My apologies. I had been in contact with upstream and they told me the bug was fixed.

I am preparing a -2 release that fixes the bug reported here:


I'll post the .diff as soon as possible.
