Package:    dictd
Severity:   wishlist

Current release in unstable/sid is 1.10.2, which is a little bit outdated.

The new upstream release 1.10.6 has a lot of new and important features, 
and bug fixes too.

Please provide it for Debian users.

 dictd (1.10.10.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release (closes: #390046, #386390):
     + dict no longer uses pager (closes: #254662), which also  makes a few
       other bugs irrelevant (closes: #389424, #332372, #324653). Document
       the change in debian/NEWS.
     + All our patches seem to be applied by upstream,
     + The dictfmt_virtual command was removed.
   * Makefile-debcflags.patch: Add support for $(DEBCFLAGS),
     and remove `-O' from default CFLAGS.
   * dictdplugin_popen-g++-4.3compile.patch: Fix FTBFS with GCC 4.3
     (closes: 454819).
   * dictd.8-man.patch: Use @SYSCONFDIR@ instead of hard-coded /etc.
   * man-hyphens.patch: Fix lintian's `hyphen-used-as-minus-sign' warning.
   * dictl-translit.patch: Use iconv's //TRANSLIT suffix (closes: #378792).
   * colorit-nopp-fix.patch: Made colorit work with `-pp -'.
   * colorit-manpage-nopager.patch: Remove references to pager.
   * Use upstream dictd(8) man page instead of our local one.
   * Install 'colorit' script, provide a sample configuration file for it.
   * Correct path in dict.conf's  header.
   * debian/copyright: Refer to GPL v2 instead of v1 (closes: #441060).
   * Update Debian docs, reorder sections in dict.README.Debian to make
     it more visible that dict does not convert character sets and dictl
     should be used in this purpose (closes: #300630).
   * debian/rules:
     + Add support for DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt.
     + Don't compile plugins even if libjudy-dev or libdb-dev is installed.
     + Samples doesn't compile, so don't try to compile them.
     + Pass -Wl,-z,defs -Wl,--as-needed to LDFLAGS.
   * debian/control:
     + Made dictfmt depend on gawk (fixes Ubuntu bug 22669).
     + Add m4 to dict's recommends since colorit uses it.
     + Build-depend on libtool.
     + Standards-Version: 3.7.3.
