 dpkg (1.18.5) unstable; urgency=medium
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * Print correct integer parse error for short-only command-line options.
     This affects «dpkg-deb -z». Closes: #809174
   * Do not abort when traversing symlinks to directories in dpkg-scanpackages
     and dpkg-scansources. Closes: #809219
   * Implement delete operator with size argument in dselect, required by the
     C++14 spec when the size-less delete operator is defined.
   * Use EACCES instead of EWOULDBLOCK for fcntl(2) F_SETLK in dselect.
   * Print the archive filename when dpkg cannot access it.
   * Check that all passed archive filenames to dpkg exist before queuing them.
     Closes: #809963
   * Use ohshit() instead of internerr() for unhandled dpkg-split exit codes.
     (i.e. do not abort). Closes: #812679
   * Detect non-regular file archive arguments earlier in dpkg.
   * Switch URLs in docs, code comments and packaging, from http:// or git://
     to https:// if the latter is available (round three). This includes the
     dpkg git repository, copyright format URL and examples in man pages among
   * Clarify where to find the GPL-2 license in debian/copyright.
   * Do not enable stack-protector on nios2 in Debian and derivatives (it is
     not supported by gcc yet).
   * Check first for build type to short-circuit boolean expressions in
   * Add source format backend-specific --help options support to dpkg-source.
   * Add MIPS R6 architectures to arch tables. Closes: #807340
     Thanks to YunQiang Su <wzssyqa@gmail.com>.
   * Fix memory leak when unpacking conffiles.
   * Use fixed string matching for pathnames in dpkg-maintscript-helper.
     Thanks to Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>.
   * Quote shell variables in dpkg-maintscript-helper.
     Thanks to Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>.
   * Anchor pathnames in sed and grep regexes in dpkg-maintscript-helper.
     Thanks to Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>.
   * Allow broken versions starting with a dash in dpkg-maintscript-helper.
     Thanks to Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>.
   * Add a new treewalk module in libdpkg, with the nice properties of avoiding
     duplicate stat(2) calls, not calling find(1), and sorting the output w/o
     stalling on the entire input being slurped and sorted.
     - Use it to build the .deb data member in dpkg-deb.
     - Use it to build the .deb control member in dpkg-deb.
     Closes: #719845
     - Use it with dpkg --recursive option.
   * Unify start-stop-daemon --help output with the rest of the tools.
   * Search for debsig-verify in PATH instead of using an absolute path.
   * Do not error out when failing to open the SE label db on permissive mode.
     Closes: #811037
   * Rewrite the trigger deferred file parser from flex to manual. The format
     is very simple, and a simple hand-written parser is smaller and avoids a
     build dependency.
   * Be more strict when parsing the COLUMNS environment variable in dpkg-query.
   * Make the Architecture field mandatory on package builds.
   * Use new Dpkg::Arch functions to validate and parse architectures when
     building source packages. Closes: #784808
   * Do safe matching of directories containing conffiles in
     dpkg-maintscript-helper, instead of using a variable pathname as a regex
     with grep, which is susceptible to metacharacters acting as part of the
     regex. Proposed by Carsten Hey <carsten@debian.org>.
   * Decouple local keyword declaration from command assignment in
     dpkg-maintscript-helper, which masks the command return value when
     using «set -e».
   * Make dpkg pass <new-version> to maintscript actions that cannot get it
     otherwise. These actions are now:
     - <new-postrm> failed-upgrade <old-version> <new-version>
     - <new-postrm> abort-install <old-version> <new-version>
     - <new-postrm> abort-upgrade <old-version> <new-version>
     - <new-preinst> install <old-version> <new-version>
     - <new-preinst> upgrade <old-version> <new-version>
     - <new-prerm> failed-upgrade <old-version> <new-version>
     Prompted by Andrey Utkin <andrey.krieger.utkin@gmail.com>.
   * Promote a print to a warning for missing control files in dpkg-deb.
   * Use info() instead of print in dpkg-buildpackage and dpkg-genchanges.
   * Add very basic color support to all dpkg namespaced programs, enabled by
     setting the environment variable DPKG_COLORS to “auto”, “always” or
     “never”, the latter being the default.
   * Add support for a new --build option to define build type by a
     comma-separated list of components (“source”, “any”, “all”, “binary” or
     “full”) in dpkg-genchanges and dpkg-buildpackage.
   * Add new -I option to dpkg-shlibdeps to ignore package build directories.
     Closes: #821025
   * Add new -O option to dpkg-genchanges.
   * Make dpkg export variable DPKG_ROOT in maintainer scripts. Closes: #804624
     Thanks to Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>.
   * Add new --force-script-chrootless option to dpkg.
     Thanks to Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>.
   * Portability:
     - Move DPKG_ADMINDIR environment variable name out from update-alternatives
       code, to make life easier for non-dpkg-based systems.
     - Move alternatives temporary extension out from update-alternatives code,
       to make life easier for non-dpkg-based systems.
     - Switch start-stop-daemon on */kFreeBSD to use the low-level sysctl(3)
       interface instead of libkvm-dev.
   * Perl modules:
     - Add new CTRL_REPO_RELEASE control block type to Dpkg::Control.
       CTRL_COPYRIGHT_LICENSE control block types to Dpkg::Control.
     - Make patching a file multiple times fatal for the first quilt patch in
       Dpkg::Source. Reported by Apollon Oikonomopoulos <apoikos@debian.org>.
       Closes: #810720
     - Only warn once when a diff patches a file multiple times in
       Dpkg::Source::Patch, and fix the warning message to make it clear that
       the diff might be patching the file more than once, not just twice.
     - Check existence of search criteria in Dpkg::Index when checking with a
       regex or a string match. Closes: #780906
       Base on a patch by Daniel Dehennin <daniel.dehennin@baby-gnu.org>.
     - Add new functions to validate and parse architecture names in Dpkg::Arch.
     - Make the dependency parser more strict in Dpkg::Deps. Closes: #784806
     - Add strong digest marking support to Dpkg::Checksums.
     - Error out on source packages without any strong digests in
       Dpkg::Source::Package, used by dpkg-source --extract, which can still
       be disabled with --no-check.
     - Switch Dpkg::Conf implementation to be hash based, add two new accessors
       and a new option to the filter method to use the old behavior.
     - Do not parse entry multiple times in Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian.
       Add new parse_header() and parse_trailer() methods, and deprecate
       check_header() and check_trailer() ones.
     - Use “GnuPG” instead of “gpg” in error messages to refer to the software
       in Dpkg::Source::Package.
     - Handle undef versions in Dpkg::Changelog from empty versions in
       changelog entry header lines.
     - Allow detached upstream orig tarball signatures when extracting
       version 1.0 non-native source packages.
     - Include upstream orig tarball signatures in source packages.
       See #759478.
