libx11 (2:1.1-2) experimental; urgency=low

   [ Josh Triplett ]
   * Include some upstream post-1.1 fixes in debian/patches:
     * "Bug #9153: Fix access to freed memory."
     * "Bug #9154: Always process an event for _XReadEvents, even if an error
        occurs"; fixes an assertion failure, first observed with xcompmgr.
     * "Debian bug #354315: Clarify return value in XGetWindowAttributes man
        page" (closes: 354315)
   * Fix override discrepancies: library packages go in libs, -dbg and -dev
     packages go in libdevel.  Fix for both the libx11 packages and the new
     libx11-xcb packages.

libx11 (2:1.1-1) experimental; urgency=low

   [ Josh Triplett, Jamey Sharp ]
   * New upstream version.
   * Add ourselves to Uploaders.

     * 019_new_autoconf.diff: delete, applied upstream
     * 020_CVE-2006-5397.diff: delete, applied upstream
   * Stop registering /usr/X11R6/lib in /etc/ in the postinst;
     instead, deregister it if no libraries remain in it.  Remove deregistration
     in postrm, and remove now-unnecessary postrm.
   * Add Build-Depends on libxcb1-dev >= 0.9.92 and libxcb-xlib0-dev >= 0.9.92.
   * Remove Build-Depends not needed with Xlib/XCB: bigreqsproto, xcmiscproto,
     libxau-dev, and libxdmcp-dev.
   * libx11-dev has some unnecessary Depends, but other packages currently rely
     on them, so removal will wait until a later version.
   * Add library, -dev, and -dbg packages for new library libX11-xcb.  Modify
     rules to handle these new packages.
   * libX11-xcb Conflicts: libx11-6 (<< 2:1.1), since it requires a version with
   * Add a NEWS.Debian to libx11-6, with Xlib/XCB information.
   * Add XS-Vcs-Git field.
   * Remove old upstream CVS information from package descriptions.
   * Reword package descriptions to stop calling Xlib "the" client interface.

libx11 (2:1.0.3-7) unstable; urgency=high

   * Grab patch from upstream git to fix CVE-2007-1667 (the patch included in
     2:1.0.3-6 was incomplete).  This closes: #414045.

libx11 (2:1.0.3-6) unstable; urgency=high

   * Add patch by Daniel Kobras <> to add more input
     validation to XInitImage(), to fix security issues (closes: #414045).

libx11 (2:1.0.3-5) unstable; urgency=high

   * Remove /usr/X11R6/lib from /etc/ in postinst if it's no longer
     needed, instead of adding it there.
   * Add patch 021_compose_fclose.diff to fix file descriptor leak when a
     Compose file uses the "include" directive.  Urgency high because this bug
     can have security implications.
   * Add myself to Uploaders, and remove Fabio and Branden with their

libx11 (2:1.0.3-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Some patches got lost in the upgrade from 1.0.0 (2:1.0.0-9) to 1.0.3:
     - 015_russian_locale_alias.diff.  Closes: #368655.
       This aligns with the glibc russian definition of ru_RU.KOI8-R in
       /usr/share/locale/locale.alias.  Note that this only applies to
       Debian's glibc, see bug #62586 and glibc 2.2.5-4. Because of the
       constraint implosed by glibc in /usr/share/i18n/locales/ru_RU,
       we cannot likewise change ru and ru_RU away from ISO8859-5.
       They really should be using ru_RU.UTF-8 anyway.
     - 016_greek_polytonic_Compose.diff. Closes: #386471.
     - 017_FTBFS_makekeys.diff can be left out since it is applied in 1.0.3.

libx11 (2:1.0.3-3) unstable; urgency=high

   [ Julien Cristau ]
   * Urgency high for security bugfix (CVE-2006-5397).
   * Add patch 020_CVE-2006-5397 to fix double fopen() of compose file
   (closes: #398460).  Thanks to Stefan Fritsch for the report.

libx11 (2:1.0.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Run dh_install with --list-missing
   * Remove obsolete patch 011
   * Bump debhelper compat to 5
   * Upstream fix allows building in gnu environments. Thanks Samuel
     Thibault, Robert Millan, and Michael Banck. Closes: #358708
   * Add 019_new_autoconf.diff to allow us to not break the server in
     horrendous ways using newer versions of autoconf. Thanks to Jamey Sharp
     for pointing this patch out in upstream HEAD.
   * Add 010_manpage_suffixes.diff to dynamically generate the internal manpage
     section using __libmansuffix__ the same way the actual file suffix is
     generated, so that they match and lintian becomes useful again here
   * Add pre-depends on x11-common for the -dev package
   [ Denis Barbier ]
   * Sync patches:
     - 003_recognize_glibc_2.3.2_locale_names.diff

     - 006_tailor_pt_BR.UTF-8_Compose.diff
     - 014_add_Khmer_digraphs.diff
   * Add 014_add_Khmer_digraphs.diff.  Khmer keyboards have to generate
     several characters with a single keystroke, so define them in
     en_US.UTF-8/Compose.  They will be added later to all UTF-8 files.
     Thanks Paul Wise.  (closes: #355957)
   * Add support for Khmer locale in 003_recognize_glibc_2.3.2_locale_names.diff
   [ Andres Salomon ]
   * Test for obj-$(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE) before creating it during build;
     idempotency fix.
   [ Drew Parsons ]
   * dbg package has priority extra.

libx11 (2:1.0.0-9) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 015_russian_locale_alias.diff.  Locale alias for russian was incorrect,
     it should be ru_RU.KOI8-R as in glibc locale.alias.  Thanks Andrei Lahun.
     (closes: #368655)
   * Add 016_greek_polytonic_Compose.diff.  Add compose sequences with the

   * Remove libx11-dev's dependencies on libxi-dev and libxkbfile-dev. Add a
     dependency on x11proto-input-dev instead. This should break some circular
     dependencies. Thanks go yet again to Kurt Roeckx.

     (Closes: #356918).

libx11 (2:1.0.0-3) experimental; urgency=low

   [ David Nusinow ]
   * Stop using the xsfbs autoreconf script. The main beneft of using quilt in
     keeping the patches separate is for submitting things upstream and porting
     our changes between upstream releases. Keeping the automatically generated
     build system stuff in patches also doesn't fall under this use category.
   * Make libx11-6 conflict with xlibs-data. Thanks Kurt Roeckx.

libx11 (2:1.0.0-1) experimental; urgency=low

   * First upload to Debian
   * Remove versioned build-dep on x11proto-core-dev, since the first package
     we'll be uploading will be versioned properly for us
   * Remove patch dir as the patch has been incorporated by upstream

libx11 (1:6.2.1+cvs.20050722-8) breezy; urgency=low

   * Fix non-UTF-8 locales by fixing generation of compose.dir, locale.alias,

libx11 (1:6.2.1+cvs.20050722-6) breezy; urgency=low

   * Add libx11-dev Build-Depends on x11proto-kb-dev, so we get XKBstr.h, which

     default X input method (closes: Ubuntu#12184).

libx11 (1:6.2.1+cvs.20050722-3) breezy; urgency=low

   * Make ErrDes.c and StrKeysym.c look for XKEYSYMDB and XERRORDB, not
     KEYSYMDB and ERRORDB, with the pleasant side-effect that they look
     directly in /usr/share/X11, not /usr/lib/X11, so we can throw the cheesy
     symlinks away.  This fixes some corner cases in hoary upgrades.

libx11 (1:6.2.1+cvs.20050722-2) breezy; urgency=low

   * Move locale data back to /usr/share and libraries to /usr/lib.  XlcDL.c

     Conflicts on xlibs-data up to -33.  Add symlinks to locale data in
