Bug#599357: unblock wireshark/1.2.11-2



Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
Usertags: freeze-exception

Hi,

I would like to ask for freeze exception for the latest wireshark upload.
There has been two uploads to unstable for wireshark since the last migration.
1.2.11 is a mostly bugfix release but introduced a regression which
has been fixed in 1.2.11-2.

Changes:
 wireshark (1.2.11-2) unstable; urgency=low
 .
   * 25_fix-libsmi-workaround.patch:
     Fix the libsmi workaround by adding missing brackets.
   * backport fix for IP header checksum calculation regression introduced
     in 1.2.10
   * [Debconf translation updates]
     - Vietnamese (Clytie Siddall). (Closes: #598498)
 .
   [ Daniel T Chen ]
   * 22_lp606063-fix-assertion-capture_start.patch:
     Handle event handler being invoked recursively.  Fix backported from
     upstream SVN r33906.  Thanks, Gregor Beck!

     (LP: #606063)


Changes:
 wireshark (1.2.11-1) unstable; urgency=high
 .
   * New upstream release 1.2.11
     - release notes:
       http://www.wireshark.org/docs/relnotes/wireshark-1.2.11.html
       (Closes: #597703)
     - security fixes
        - The RTSP dissector could crash. (No assigned CVE number.)
   * [Debconf translation updates]
     - Basque (Iñaki Larrañaga Murgoitio).

1.2.10-2+squeeze1 has been uploaded to Squeeze via t-p-u, but  I
believe 1.2.11-2 would be
the better choice for Squeeze.

There were a discussion about the update, the thread starts here:

Cheers,
Balint
