mplayer (2:1.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * New upstream release.

       before a lot of the old APIs are dropped. Some features will have to be
       removed in MPlayer after (eg. XvMC, lavfi ulnless it's rewritten), because
       of incompatibilities or deprecation.

       require linux only headers causing FTBFS in kfreebsd-* and hurd.

   * strip libavcodec similar to how its done in the ffmpeg package. This
     brings the patent policy of the mplayer and ffmpeg package in debian
     finally in sync. c.f. the comments and the "discussion" in #522373.
   * install upstream's version of

mplayer (1.0~rc3+svn20090405-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version. Track the 1.0rc3 release branch for now.
   * remove 50_r28803_segfault_print_int.patch, merged upstream.
   * no longer remove the TOOLS subdirectory from the upstream source.
   * make get-orig-source rule actually work.
   * disable musepack support. Closes: #476384
   * completely delegate handling of /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf to
     dpkg. This change removes also all debconf templates and reduces
     package complexity.
   * move .gbp.conf to debian/gbp.conf
   * cleanups in debian/rules: prefer external debhelper helper files
   * enhance upstream Makefile to install gmplayer manpages
      - implement as quilt patch, submitted upstream
      - debian/rules: make use of the added rules
   * use dh_prep instead of dh_clean -k
   * bump Standards-Version to 3.8.1

mplayer (1.0~rc2+svn20090303-7) unstable; urgency=low

   * various cleanups in  debian/rules.
   * as a side effect, DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS set to noopt no longer works. It
     really needs to be implemented in ./configure instead of weird hackery
     in debian/rules. patches welcome.
   * run 'make distclean' only of config.mak exists.
   * remove debian/control.mplayer* variants.
   * don't --enable-debug on mipsen. This hopfully fixes the FTBFS on mipsen.

   * cleanup debian/rules: use --enable-debug on all architectures but mips.
     in order to fix a FTBFS. This results in making the -dbg package on mips
     useless. If you are interested in having a usable mplayer-dbg package on
     mips, please try enabling that switch in debian/rules and send us your

     debian/control target in debian rules.
   * do not run the actual rules of debian/rules in parallel, fixes FTBFS
   * implement the debconf review by Josselin Mouette and Christian
     Perrier. The last debconf question is mplayer/replace-existing-files
     (which can be dropped after ucf is deployed in the package) and
     mplayer/voutput, which needs more thought. (Closes: #445091)

     if fc-list is available, let the user choose between a huge list as well

     - an empty 'font=' in mplayer.conf breaks mplayer: postinst corrected
   * correction in 'mplayer/cfgnote'
   * better mplayer.postinst and mplayer.config

mplayer (1.0.cvs20030324-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * following the discussion started by Diego Biurrun <>
     in debian-devel, I have prepared a new packaging of 'mplayer'
     (with code that comes from CVS)
   * the upstream cannot be distributed by Debian, since it contains
      CSS code; so I am repackaging it
   * I have tried my best to address all known issues:
     - the package contains the detailed Copyright made by Diego Biurrun
     - the package does not contain CSS code, or  AFAIK other code on which
        there is active patent enforcement
     - there is a script  debian/  that shows all changes
        done to files included in this source.
       This should comply with GPLv2 sec 2.a  (in spirit if not in letter)
       For this reason, the source code contains CVS directories.
   * needs   make (>= 3.80) for 'html-chunked-$(1)' in DOCS/xml/Makefile
