dpkg (1.16.4) unstable; urgency=low
  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Deprecate compressing .deb files with lzma, by making dpkg-deb issue a
    warning, as the format has several deficiencies that have been addressed
    by upstream in xz. Although unpacking will be kept being supported to
    handle existing lzma compressed .deb files.
  * Add alternative changelog formats documentation from the policy manual
    to dpkg-parsechangelog(1). Closes: #584141
  * Add MiNT support to ostable and triplettable.
    Requested by Thorsten Glaser <tg@mirbsd.de>.
  * Add new frontend.txt file to dpkg-dev documenting some public interfaces
    for dpkg frontends. Closes: #670897
  * Clarify in dpkg(1) when --force-conf* options cause action.
    Suggested by Sven Joachim <svenjoac@gmx.de>. Closes: #391818
  * Add “gcc | c-compiler” to libdpkg-perl Suggests, due to Dpkg::Arch usage.
    Closes: #671198
  * Do not mask PIE from dpkg-buildflags on m68k, it appears to work now.
    Requested by Thorsten Glaser <tg@mirbsd.de>.
  * Remove deprecated support for PGP style signing command interface from
  * Remove obsolete --udeb dpkg-scanpackages option.
  * Add arm64 support to cputable. Closes: #672408
    Thanks Wookey <wookey@wookware.org>.
  * Check parsed integers for invalid or no digit errors in start-stop-daemon
    and update-alternatives.
  * Check all parsed integers for out of range errors; i.e. that no negative
    values are allowed if not appropriate, and that no overflows occur.
    Closes: #580038
  * Switch start-stop-daemon(8) man page examples from /var/run to /run.
  * Do not obscure Dpkg::Source::Package ‘require’ errors with custom
    error message. Thanks to Thomas Adam <thomas.adam@smoothwall.net> and
    Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com>.
  * Add new Dpkg::Substvars::set_as_used() member function.
  * Rename Dpkg::Substvars no_warn() member function to mark_as_used(), keep
    the old name aliased to the new one producing a deprecation warning.
  * Add support for Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Arch fields, and
    a new -A option to dpkg-checkbuilddeps. Closes: #629480
    Thanks to Roger Leigh <rleigh@debian.org>.
  * Add support for “none” as a valid dpkg-deb compression strategy value.
    Closes: #674711
  * Clarify in dpkg(1) that the «dpkg -l» example only lists installed
    packages, and that to list available packages «dpkg-query --load-avail»
    has to be used instead. Closes: #673305
  * Clarify also in the dpkg(1) man page (already present in the dpkg.cfg(5)
    man page) the valid filenames for /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/ fragment files.
    Closes: #674674
  * Fix start-stop-daemon to not follow symlinks when creating pidfiles.
    Thanks to Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>. Closes: #675918
  * Refactor the file locking logic into a new Dpkg::File module, and move
    the libfile-fcntllock-perl dependency from dpkg-dev to libdpkg-perl.
  * Demote the libfile-fcntllock-perl Depends to a Recommends by falling back
    to use flock based locking, because it being an XS module makes building
    a new perl package bumping the perl ABI impossible, as both packages
    become uninstallable. Thanks to Dominic Hargreaves <dom@earth.li>.
    Closes: #675947
  * Put an & before field_capitalize() calls in Dpkg::Control::Fields to
    fix a usege before declaration warning with perl 5.16. Closes: #676262
  * Do not warn in dpkg-divert on missing files list file for packages never
    installed before. Closes: #673518
  * Add support for liblzma to handle .xz and .lzma compressed files, and
    switch to it instead of using xz-utils. This removes the xz-utils
    Pre-Depends from dpkg. Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com>.
  * Always activate all path components for file triggers, this fixes file
    trigger handling for conffiles and dpkg-trigger invokations.
    Closes: #675613, #676061, #676062, #676107, #676118, #676122
  * Do not reset Multi-Arch field in the update log when removing the package.
    Closes: #676496
  * Fix dpkg-split to honour the DPKG_ADMINDIR environment variable.
  [ Updated man page translations ]
  * German (Helge Kreutzmann).
  * French (Christian Perrier). Fixes a mistranslation and some
    inconsistencies reported by Vincent Danjean( thanks). Closes: #673158
