Changelog guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-3ubuntu0.1)


guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-3ubuntu0.1) bionic; urgency=medium

   * Convert triggers to noawait (LP: #1780996) (Closes: #903915)
     - the trigger is supposed to register slib with guile-2.0 but the
       registration is a no-op, so it's completely safe to make it noawait.

guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-3build1) bionic; urgency=medium

   * Rebuild against new libunistring 0.9.9.

guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Disable more of test-out-of-memory since it's still failing.  It's
     still failing on at least arm64.

guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Disable sandbox.test "1e6 alloc loop" "allocation limit" test.  Add
     0003-Disable-sandbox.test-1e6-alloc-loop-allocation-limit.patch to
     disable a test that appears to be causing the test suite to to hang.
   * Disable intermittently failing test-out-of-memory case.  After
     consultation with upstream, add
     0004-Disable-intermittently-failing-test-out-of-memory-te.patch to
     disable a case in test-out-of-memory that was causing a FTBS on some
     architectures.  Thanks to Aaron M. Ucko for reporting the
     problem. (Closes: 880148)


guile-2.2 (2.2.3+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 2.2.3
   * debian/rules: disable -fstack-protector-strong to avoid test crash.
     Without this, test-out-of-memory fails on at least
     unstable/amd64/gcc-7 (cf.
   * debian/rules: stop forcing -O0 on amd64.  The underlying issue may
     have been resolved.

guile-2.2 (2.2.2+2-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge 2.2+2 to remove DFSG incompatible files.
   * Add missing debian/copyright entries.

guile-2.2 (2.2.2+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 2.2.2.
   * Update debian/ for 2.2.
   * debian/rules: clean the prebuilt files.
   * debian/control: depend on libreadline-dev instead of
     libreadline6-dev.  Thanks to Helmut Grohne for reporting the issue.
     (cf. #857649)
   * Update lintian overrides for 2.2.
   * Do all cleaning in debian/rules, and update list.
   * Accommodate libguilereadline rename to guile-readline.
   * Adjust update-alternatives priority for 2.2.


guile-2.0 (2.0.13+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * guile.postinst: remove old guile-2.0 alternative.  Thanks to Andreas
     Beckmann (again) for reporting the problem and providing the
     solution. (Closes: 834093)

guile-2.0 (2.0.13+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * guile.postinst: always update alternatives.  Previously the postinst
     might not update the alternatives, producing orphaned entries.
     Thanks to Andreas Beckmann for reporting the problem.
     (Closes: 834093)

guile-2.0 (2.0.13+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Fix intermittent 00repl-server.test failures.

guile-2.0 (2.0.13+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 2.0.13.
     Remove patches that are no longer needed:
     (Closes: 840555 840556)
   * Update debian/copyright for 2.0.13

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-12) unstable; urgency=medium

   * guile.prerm: correct alternative path in removal.  Specify the new
     lib/.../bin/guile path in the removal.  Thanks to Andreas Beckmann
     <> for reporting the problem.  (Closes: 834093)
   * Look for guile-procedures.txt in pkglibdir.  Add
     0016-Look-for-guile-procedures.txt-in-pkglibdir.patch to adjust
     guile to look for guile-procedures.txt in %guile-build-info's
     pkglibdir first since the content is not architecture independent.
     Thanks to Samuel Thibault <> for reporting the
   * Move guile-procedures.txt from share to lib.  (Closes: 816123)
   * Rename guile.1 to guile.2.0.1 during auto install.  Put the final
     path in place before dh_install ever runs (instead of renaming it in
     the install target(s)) so that debian/tmp doesn't change during
     install and dpkg-buildpackage -A actually works.  Thanks to Santiago
     Vila <> for reporting the problem again.
     (Closes: 806042)

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-11) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Handle rpath via dh_auto_configure --disable-rpath.
   * debian/rules: get version via dpkg-parsechangelog -S.
   * debian/rules: remove unused buildpackage target.
   * Don't rename the info pages to*.  Remove
     0001-Change-guile-to-guile-X.Y-for-info-pages.patch in preparation
     for handling the info pages via update-alternatives.
   * Remove obsolete debian/guile-libs.README
   * Compile with -O0 to fix GnuTLS test failures.  Apparently -O2 (the
     dpkg-buildflags default) causes failures in the GnuTLS test suite.
     So until the underlying problem is resolved, append -O0 to CFLAGS on
     amd64 via DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND (switching from DEB_MAINT_APPEND),
     moving us back to the optimization level we had in 2.0.11+1-9.
     Thanks to James Cowgill <> for reporting the
     problem, and Andreas Metzler <> for the
     workaround. (Closes: 809608)
   * Fix architecture independent builds i.e. dpkg-buildpackage -A.
     Thanks to Santiago Vila <> for reporting the
     problem.  (Closes: 806042)
   * Add guile-2.0:native dependency for <cross> builds.  Thanks to
     Helmut Grohne <> for the fix. (Closes: 809732)
   * Check the exit status of all shell calls in rules.
   * Compute alt priority in rules.
   * Use debian/autogen.sed to generate debian/ files.  Create
     debian/autogen.sed and use it to generate the relevant debian/ files
     instead of perl and a make function.  That simplifies the quoting,
     and makes it easy to see the replacements.
   * Ensure DEBIAN files are ready for dh_installdeb.  Create a list of
     autogen_installdeb_files and have override_dh_installdeb depend on
   * Handle info pages via update-alternatives.  Install the unmodified
     info pages to /usr/share/info/guile-2.0/ and register them in
     /usr/share/info/ via update-alternatives.  See
     debian/guile-doc.README for more information.
   * Symlink guile and guile-2.0 to lib/.../bin/guile.  This avoids
     having a duplicate binary (bin/guile-2.0 vs the executable in lib)
     which also avoids colliding dbgsym packages.


guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-10) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Don't handle DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS manually
   * Restore default gcc on arm.  It appears that armhf has been fixed.
     Thanks to Aurelien Jarno <> for the report.  In
     conjunction with switching to the default Debian build flags, it
     looks like armel may work now too.  (Closes: 764532, 792637)


guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-9) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Always use "gcc" in guile-snarf.  Avoid the gcc-4.8 CC override that
     we had to apply for arm (cf. #762238).  Thanks to Julien Cristau
     <> for pointing out the oversight.

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-8) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Add 0010-web-Keep-the-default-size-for-the-client-s-in-kernel.patch
     to fix the default web client receive buffer size.  Thanks to Mark H
     Weaver <> for recommending the patch.
   * Add 0011-Fix-shrinking-of-contiguous-bytevectors-as-from-get-.patch
     to fix a problem when shrinking bytevectors.  Thanks to Mark H
     Weaver <> for recommending the patch.
   * Add 0012-Fix-bit-count-bug.patch to fix a bug in bit-count*'s
     argument handling.  Thanks to Mark H Weaver <> for
     recommending the patch.
   * Don't warn about ~:p in format strings.  Add
     0013-Handle-p-in-format-warnings.patch so that the analyzer will
     know about the existing ~p support.  Thanks to Mark H Weaver
     <> for recommending the patch.
   * Document the use-module #:prefix option.  Thanks to Mark H Weaver
     <> for recommending the patch.
   * Fix broken SCM_SMOB_OBJECT_* macros.  Add
     0015-Fix-SCM_SMOB_OBJECT-_-_0_-_1_-_2_-_3_-LOC.patch.  Thanks to
     Mark H Weaver <> for recommending the patch.
   * Handle #:optional arg values that refer to earlier args.  Add
     0016-peval-Handle-optional-argument-inits-that-refer-to-p.patch to
     incorporate the upstream fix.  Thanks to Mark H Weaver
     <> for recommending the patch.

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-7) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Add 0009-VM-Allow-the-C-compiler-to-choose-FP_REG-on-ARM.patch to
     incorporate an upstream patch to fix VM register allocation on ARM.
     Thanks to Andreas Barth <> for filing a report, and
     Mark H Weaver <> for the fix. (Closes: 763115)

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-6) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Replace some debian/patches with upstream cherry-picks.
     Replace 0003-Fix-alignment-assumptions-and-m68k-register-name.patch
     with 0005-Do-not-assume-that-64-bit-integers-will-be-64-bit-al.patch
     and 0006-VM-Use-register-a3-for-IP_REG-on-m68k.patch.  This also
     extends the alignment fixes to cover more cases.
     Replace 0004-Check-for-libtoolize-rather-than-libtool.patch with
     Replace 0007-Add-asm-constraint-modifier-to-ASM_MUL-outputs.patch with
     Thanks to Mark H Weaver <> for tracking them down.

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Revert to gcc-4.8 on arm{el,hf} to fix FTBFS.
     Right now the build dies with gcc-4.9 like this (cf. #762238):
       /tmp/ccVoWJgV.s: Assembler messages:
       /tmp/ccVoWJgV.s:13691: Error: bad immediate value for offset (4096)
     Thanks to Helmut Grohne <>, Mark H Weaver
     <>, and Wookey <> for helping track
     down the problem.
   * Fix the ASM_MUL assembly on arm for gcc-4.9.  See
     0007-Add-asm-constraint-modifier-to-ASM_MUL-outputs.patch for the
     details.  Thanks to Mark H Weaver <> for the

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Recognize s390x and sh4 as compilation targets.
     Rename 0006-Recognize-m68k-during-build.patch to
     0006-Recognize-m68k-s390x-and-sh4-as-compilation-targets.patch and
     add the relevant cases.  Thanks to Helmut for reporting the issue.

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Make guile-config executable during cross builds by making
     guile-2.0-dev depend on guile-2.0 with :any.  Thanks to Helmut
     Grohne <> for the patch. (Closes: 761479)
   * Add support for m68k via 0006-Recognize-m68k-during-build.patch.

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Convert to Multi-Arch (see next two entries). (Closes: 757591)
   [ Peter Pentchev ]
   * Bump the debhelper compatibility level to 9 so that it passes the proper
     multiarch libdir to the GNU configure script.
     Add Multi-Arch: and Pre-Depends: headers to the binary packages as
     Adapt debian/guile-*.install and debian/rules to the multiarch /usr/lib
     Make guile-libs.lintian-overrides a bit less specific, since we cannot
     use the full usr/lib/* path any longer; it changes with multiarch, and
     the contents of this file needs to be exactly the same on all
     architectures so that several guile-2.0-libs:* packages may be installed
     Avoid some libtool silliness by not letting it use -rpath at all; it'll
     try to because it "realizes" that "/usr/lib/<multiarch>" != "/usr/lib",
     so we are attempting to install to a non-standard directory, right?
   [Rob Browning]
   * Invoke "make install" directly so we can add INSTALL="install -p" to
     preserve the source file timestamps.  This should ensure that no
     architecture's .go files end up being newer than the .scm files.
   * Support DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt.
     Thanks to Rand Peters <> for the suggestion and the
     patch. (Closes: #755955)
   * Fix alignment and m68k register name.
     Add 0003-Fix-alignment-assumptions-and-m68k-register-name.patch to
     incorporate the relevant fixes.  Thanks to Thorsten Glaser
     <> for the report and Andreas Schwab
     <> for the patch. (Closes: 649718)
   * Call (g)libtoolize instead of (g)libtool.
     Add 0004-Check-for-libtoolize-rather-than-libtool.patch to adjust appropriately.  Thanks to Helmut Grohne
     <> for the report and the patch. (Closes: 761408)
   * Detect aarch64/armel endianness and pointer size correctly.
     Add 0005-Recognize-more-ARM-targets.patch to incorporate the
     relevant upstream patch.  Thanks to Wookey <> for
     reporting the problem.  (Closes: 758463)

guile-2.0 (2.0.11+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate upstream version 2.0.11.
   * Remove "Suggests: guile-2.0-doc-non-dfsg" from debian/control.  The
     documentation is now compatible with the DFSG, and included in
     guile-2.0-doc in its entirety.  Thanks to Reuben Thomas
     <> for the report. (Closes: 703500)
   * Don't put the Debian version information in Guile's (version).
     Instead, put it in %guile-build-info, as recommended by the upstream
     developers.  Thanks to Matthias Klose <> for the
     report. (Closes: 701861)
   * Add the srfi-64/testing.scm copyright to debian/copyright.
   * Move libguile-*-gdb.scm from /usr/lib to /usr/share/gdb/auto-load.
     Add Replaces and Breaks (<< 2.0.11) to debian/control.
   * Move guild from guile-libs to guile-dev, alongside the guile-tools
   * Rewrite the guile executable name in guile-config and guild


guile-2.0 (2.0.9+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate upstream version 2.0.9.
     Delete 0002-Mark-Unused-modules-are-removed-gc-test-as-unresolve.patch.


guile-2.0 (2.0.5+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 0003-Mark-mutex-with-owner-not-retained-threads-test-as-u.patch.
     This should help fix some unpredictable gc-related build failures.

guile-2.0 (2.0.5+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 0002-Mark-Unused-modules-are-removed-gc-test-as-unresolve.patch.
     This should help fix some unpredictable build failures.  Thanks to
     Julien Cristau <> for the original report against
     guile-1.8 (#653939).

guile-2.0 (2.0.5+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate upstream version 2.0.5.
   * Delete 0001-Fix-the-SRFI-60-copy-bit-documentation.patch,
     0002-Define-_GNU_SOURCE-to-fix-the-GNU-kFreeBSD-build.patch, and

guile-2.0 (2.0.3+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add libgc-dev build dependency to guile-2.0-dev.  Thanks to Daniel
     Hartwig <> for the report.  (Closes: #651924)
   * Add pkg-config build dependency to guile-2.0-dev.  Thanks to for the report. (Closes: #655574)


guile-2.0 (2.0.3+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Disable SLIB setup for now, since SLIB doesn't support Guile 2.0
     yet.  Thanks to "Aaron M. Ucko" <> for the report.
     (Closes: #648680)
   * Add build-deps: libunistring-dev, libgc-dev libffi-dev, and
     pkg-config.  Thanks to "Aaron M. Ucko" <> for the
     report, and Svante Signell <> for an initial
     patch. (Closes: #648679)
   * Automatically extract versions from debian/changelog in
   * Create .version and .tarball-version from the values in
     debian/changelog.  Automatically generate a top-level .version and
     .tarball-version based on the values in debian/changelog, so that
     the Guile PACKAGE_VERSION (and output of the version function) will
     include the Debian revision, i.e. (version) => "2.0.3-deb+1-2".

guile-2.0 (2.0.3+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream release, and eliminate the DFSG split.  The
     upstream GFDL licensed files no longer have invariant clauses.
   * Adjust debian/* for guile-2.0, and remove alpha and sh4 CFLAGS
   * Finally re-enable threads.
   * Include gc.h rather than gc/gc_version.h in pthread test.  See
     comments in recent gc_version.h.  It should never be included
     directly, and doing so was causing build failures.

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-7) unstable; urgency=low

   * Allow guile-1.8 and guile-2.0 manpages to coexist.  Rename the manpage
     from guile.1 to guile-X.Y.1 and use update-alternatives --slave so
     that the Guile manpage will be available via "man guile" or "man
   * Configure with --disable-error-on-warning.  This fixes build failures
     caused by newer versions of gcc that report new warnings.  Thanks to
     Matthias Klose <> for the report, (Ludovic
     Court├Ęs) for the fix, and Nobuhiro Iwamatsu <> for
     the 1.8.8+1-6.1 NMU which included it.  (Closes: #625355)
   * Add upstream patch to fix sockets.test on non-IPV6 kernels.  Add
     0006-Make-sockets.test-more-robust.patch.  Thanks to Nobuhiro Iwamatsu
     <> for the report and the pointer to the upstream
     patch. (Closes: #631254)

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add "Replaces: guile-1.8-dev" to guile-1.8-libs to accommodate .so
     moves.  Thanks to Marc Glisse <> for the
     report.  (closes: #628087)

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add a copy of the guile binary to /usr/lib/guile-1.8/bin in
     guile-1.8-libs to support the slib postinst trigger; remove the
     guile-1.8-libs dependency on guile-1.8.  Thanks to Bill Allombert
     <> for the report. (closes: #626167)

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add guile-1.8 dependency to guile-1.8 for slib related postinst code.
     Thanks to Peter De Wachter <> for the report.
     (closes: #625243)

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Drop guile-1.8-slib package again, and handle SLIB via a
     guile-1.8-libs /usr/share/slib trigger.  Among other things, these
     changes should fix the recent problems with SLIB support, and should
     also make sure that Guile's SLIB support is adjusted properly whenever
     the slib package is updated.  Thanks to Gert Michael Kulyk
     <> for the report. (closes: #624531)
   * Move libguile?*.so files to guile-1.8-dev now that .la files are gone.
     Guile dynamically loads these libraries via dlopen, so it needs the
     .so files for operations like (use-modules (srfi srfi-13)).  Given the
     way Guile handles the library names upstream (changing the library
     names for ABI changes), putting the .so files in guile-X.Y-libs won't
     cause file conflicts across different major versions.  Thanks to
     Tomasz Melcer <> for the report. (closes: #622280)
   * Rename debian/*.lintian to debian/*.lintian-overrides; update

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Don't access uninitialized memory in scm_to_sockaddr().
     Thanks to Thorsten Glaser <> for the patch.
   * Add flex as a build dependency.
     Thanks to Thorsten Glaser <> for the patch.

guile-1.8 (1.8.8+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate upstream release 1.8.8. (closes: #616694)
   * Switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format.
   * Rewrite debian/rules to use "dh $@"; update debian/compat to 8, and
     let dh_auto* handle as much as possible.
   * Depend on libltdl-dev and libgmp-dev, not libltdl3-dev and libgmp3-dev.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the fix.
   * Remove *.la files from all debs (wheezy release goal).
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the fix. (closes: #621240)
   * Add guile1.4 conflict to guile-1.8 package.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the fix. (closes: #523949)
   * Add a homepage field to the control file.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the suggestion.
   * Make guile-1.8 and guile-1.8-dev depend on current guile-1.8-libs version.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the patch. (closes: #441241)
   * Restore guile-1.8-slib package now that Guile supports it again.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the patch. (closes: #441110)
   * Update package descriptions.
   * Export fake HOME to make sure the build process doesn't touch the real one.
     Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for the fix.


guile-1.8 (1.8.7+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Change debian/control sections to lisp to match Debian distribution
   * Fix problem with make check and newer libltdl
     (fix-make-check-for-new-libltdl.diff).  Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum
     <> for the report. (closes: #560653)


guile-1.8 (1.8.7+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add -Xusr/share/info/dir to dh_install and depend on "dpkg (>= 1.15.4)
     | install-info".  Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for an
     interim NMU (1.8.7+1-1.1).
   * Add debhelper ${misc:Depends} to debian/control for all binary
     packages.  Thanks to Jordi Mallach <> for an interim
     NMU (1.8.7+1-1.1).
   * Install ./examples to /usr/share/doc/guile-1.8-dev/examples.  Thanks
     to Mario Lang <> for the suggestion. (closes: 539317).
   * Add /usr/share/doc/guile-1.8-libs/README.Debian to discuss the
     --with-threads issue.  Thanks to (Riku Saikkonen) for
     the suggestion. (closes: 530010)
   * Change dependency from libreadline5-dev to libreadline6-dev.  Thanks
     to Trafire Arcanegrin <> for the report and Jordi
     Mallach <> for an interim NMU (1.8.7+1-1.1).
     (closes: #550131)

guile-1.8 (1.8.7+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release.
   * Do not redefine jmp_buf in a public header, rather define
     scm_jump_buf, etc.  Thanks to and Kurt Roeckx
     <>, and to Ben Hutchings <> for the
     patch. (closes: 527527, 506684)
   * Add support for Renesas SuperH architecture.  Thanks to Nobuhiro
     Iwamatsu <>. (closes: 531378)

guile-1.8 (1.8.6+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release. (closes: #522717, #396975)


guile-1.8 (1.8.5+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Change Architectures back to any where appropriate (i.e. include
     ia64).  (closes: #495209)

guile-1.8 (1.8.5+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Fix the stack direction check again in order to fix builds on hppa.
     Thanks to Neil Jerram <> for the final
     patch. (closes: #481378)
   * Add kfreebsd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64 to the relevant Architectures
     lines in debian/control.  Thanks to Petr Salinger
     <> for the fix. (closes: #493164)
   * Fix ia64 continuations.  Thanks to Neil Jerram
     <> for the patch. (closes: #401400)

guile-1.8 (1.8.5+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Fix the stack direction check on a number of architectures, and the
     mips gc definitions.  Thanks to Thiemo Seufer <> for
     the initial report and Neil Jerram <> for the
     final patches. (closes: #481378)

guile-1.8 (1.8.5+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release.
   * Fix gcc 4.3 compilation problems (fixed upstream now).  Thanks to
     Alexander Schmehl <> for the previous, related
     1.8.4+1-2.1 NMU, and to Maximiliano Curia and Daniel Schepler for the
     original patch. (closes: #462384, #466778)

guile-1.8 (1.8.4+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Remove ia64 from Architectures.  Since it doesn't look like "!ia64" is
     legal syntax for Architectures, just enumerate them all.  Guile
     doesn't support ia64 yet. (closes: #400401)
   * Use -Os on alpha rather than -O2.  Right now -O2 causes make check to
     fail with a segfault in r4rs.test.

guile-1.8 (1.8.4+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release.
   * Use @DEB_SRC_EFF_VER@ in debian/guile-doc.install.
   * Add NEWS to /usr/share/doc/guile-*-doc/. (closes: #405231)
   * Add const to ucontext_t* in gc.c for ia64.  Thanks to Matthew Wilcox
     <> and (closes: #465191, #460106)
   * Move menu entry from Apps to Applications.


guile-1.8 (1.8.3+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release.
   * Re-disable threads.  It turns out that Guile's libraries aren't ABI
     compatible when compiled with and without threads.  Since Etch shipped
     --without-threads, threads will remain disabled for now. (closes: #439923)
   * Add some lintian overrides.  Thanks to Ludovic RESLINGER.
     (closes: #396977, #397009)

guile-1.8 (1.8.2+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Re-enable threads.

   * Add NEWS to guile-1.8-doc. (closes: #405231)
   * Fix GNU/kFreeBSD build.  Thanks to Petr Salinger. (closes: #401168)


guile-1.8 (1.8.1+1-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix additional problems with the test suite on 64-bit
     architectures. (closes: #396119)
   * Fix srfi-14.test (use throw rather than thrown). (closes: #397740)

guile-1.8 (1.8.1+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add build dependency on texinfo.

guile-1.8 (1.8.1+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Update debhelper dependency to match debian/compat. (closes: #396974)
   * Fix problem with copy-bit and with various tests on 64-bit
     architectures. (closes: #396119)

guile-1.8 (1.8.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Incorporate new upstream stable release.
   * Remove the debian/patches for items fixed upstream (all of them).
   * In accordance with the recent General Resolution
     (, move all non-DFSG files to
     new packages that will be included in Debian's non-free section.  The
     debian/dfsg-splitter script has been used to split the upstream
   * Version the doc package info files so that the doc package for each
     Guile stable series no longer conflicts with the doc package for other
     stable series.  This has made the virtual guile-doc package obsolete.
   * Delete debian/need-empty-autofiles-diff when not needed, always start
     with an empty autofiles.diff when regenerating, and fix a few other
     things in rules.
   * Work around a dh_installinfo bug.  It always inserts \Q and \E around
     the --section, which doesn't work.

guile-1.8 (1.8.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Incorporate new upstream release. (closes: #383910, #316083)
   * Compile --with-threads=no for now to avoid a thread-related bug.  This
     should be a temporary measure.
   * Move guile-config, guile-snarf, guile-tools, and guile scripts to
     guile-1.8-dev package.
   * Disable SLIB support for now since Guile 1.8 doesn't support SLIB
     upstream yet.
   * Rewrite the #! line of appropriate guile scripts to use the versioned
     binary name.  This should have already been the case, but the code in
     debian/rules wasn't quite right.
   * When autofiles.diff is empty, it doesn't show up in the resulting
     Debian source tree (via dpkg-source -x), so fix debian/rules to
   * NOTE: the 1.8 package was branched from the 1.6 package before the
     1.6.7-3 release, so there are more recent 1.6 releases that are not
     shown below.

guile-1.6 (1.6.7-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Migrate from dpatch to quilt.
   * Fix FTBFS with gcc-4.0.  Thanks to Daniel Schepler
     <>. (closes: #300146)
   * Rebuild with current dpkg-dev to fix the cpp version in guile-snarf.
     Thanks to Daniel Schepler <>. (closes: #317600)
   * Update debian/rules to support autofiles.diff, autofiles-sync, etc.
   * Add (pending) upstream patch for compatibility with newer SLIB, but
     adjust the new slib.scm to load slib/init/guile.init rather than
     slib/guile.init in order to accomodate Debian's slib.
     (closes: #334735, #337346, #338823, #340149)


guile-1.6 (1.6.7-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * new upstream bugfix release. (closes: #279282)
   * updated guile-X.Y-slib package description.
   * changed build dependency to libreadline5-dev. (closes: #279280)


guile-1.6 (1.6.4-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix release oversight (forgot to delete beta pkg warning(s)).

guile-1.6 (1.6.4-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * patch 50_gc-realloc fixes snd gc segfault. Thanks to Sam Hocevar
     <>. (closes: #198896)
   * patch 50_m68k-smob-crash fixes m68k build crash.  Thanks to Sam
     Hocevar <>. (closes: #193870)
   * patch 50_ia64-ucontext fixes ia64 ucontext related build failure.
     Thanks to Sam Hocevar <>. (closes: #193868)
   * fix guile-1.6 conflicts with libguile-dev -- didn't have epoch so
     wasn't having any effect.  guile-1.6 needs to conflict with earlier
     libguile-dev versions because they didn't use update-alternatives for
     bin/guile-X.Y*.  It can't conflict with later versions
     (i.e. guile-1.6-dev and on) because guile-X.Y-dev is supposed to
     provide/conflict with libguile-dev. (closes: #198858)

guile-1.6 (1.6.4-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * continuations.h: include ucontext.h rather than sys/ucontext.h on
     ia64.  This fixes a compilation problem for things that use libguile.
     Thanks to James Treacy. (closes: bug#191464)
   * make guile-1.6 conflict with libguile-dev since libguile-dev didn't
     use update-alternatives for guile-config and guile-tools.  I believe
     this is what has been hosing guile-config in guile-1.6.
     (closes: bug#183977, bug#188322)
   * really fix debian/rules to avoid --enable-maintainer-mode during
     normal package builds.

guile-1.6 (1.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * remove --list-missing from debian/rules. (closes: bug#187926)
   * try fix for libqthreads-12 per-arch build problem. Try just producing
     an empty libqthreads-12 .install file on unsupported arches.
     (closes: bug#183686)
   * fix alpha qt assembly bugs. (closes: bug#186981)
   * upstream arch related fixes.

guile-1.6 (1.6.3-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * first 1.6 upload to unstable.

guile-1.6 (1.6.3-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * change some /usr/bin/guile references to /usr/bin/guile-1.6 so we make
     sure to get the right version (thanks Dale).
   * unreleased test version.

guile-1.6 (1.6.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * rearrange guile so it allows guile1.4 and guile-1.6 to coexist.
   * unreleased test version.

guile-1.6 (1.6.3-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * unreleased test version.

guile-1.6 (1.6.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * new upstream release (still not ready for Debian proper yet).


guile-1.6 (1.6.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * handle non-qthreads architectures properly.

guile-1.6 (1.6.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
