  Description     : an audio player for personalized radio

(copied from lastfm package) is the flagship product from the team that designed the Audioscrobbler
system, a music engine based on a massive collection of Music Profiles.
Each music profile belongs to one person, and describes their taste in music. uses these music profiles to make personalized recommendations, match
you up with people who like similar music, and generate custom radio
stations for each person.

This package will allow you to play your personalized radio station streams
from the website.  You will need a (free) account there to make use
of this package.

This package is replacement for previous lastfm package.

Please note, that lastfm-client is different software than current lastfm
package. The difference is explained here:

It needs to be considered whether it is better to create a new package
or to replace the current lastfm.

Note to maintainer of lastfm package: Franz, if you think that replacement
is an option, feel free to reassign this bug accordingly.

     - 13_alsa: use a more generalized linux test in
   * Update 16_select-browser so it applies cleanly.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Added patches:
     - 00_qt41: permit building on Qt 4.1 so dapper can enjoy new versions too
   * Changed patches:
   * - 10_tray: make sure show/hide behavior works for both Qt 4.1 and 4.2
     - 11_history:
       . add "Remove this station" to the context menu for recent stations
       . increase history size to 100
       . fix RecentStations counting error when playing an older station
       . delete station names that are no longer in the history
     - 12_loveban: fix track banning.  Thanks Fluxid!
   * Update the rest of the patches so they apply cleanly

   * Lower Qt build dependency to 4.1.0
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Change 10_tray to add discovery mode option to tray popup.
   * Add 21_tray-icon-size and trayicons22.tar.gz so we can have 22x22 tray
     icons instead of those tiny 16x16 ones.
   * Lintian override added: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libLastFMTools1
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Add support for iceweasel in postinst and postrm.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Update 13_alsa so it can choose from multiple default devices
     in a multi-card environment.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream.
   * Removed patches:
     - 00_build: Doesn't seem to be needed anymore.
     - 17_draglabel: Applied upstream.
   * Added patches:
     - 03_translations: Patch the .pro files to install translations.
   * Update the rest of the patches so they apply cleanly.
   * Fix rules to properly clean things before a rebuild.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Changed patches:
     - 10_tray: slightly modify behavior to make it more intuitive (for me).
     - 13_alsa: Get rid of some unused variables.
     - 14_timebar: Trim to include only the necessary bits.
   * Removed patches:
     - 16_sensiblebrowser: Not needed for Linux client. lets Qt figure
       it out for itself, but see below.
   * New patches:
     - 16_select-browser: Some people want to select which browser they use,
       and apparently Qt's default isn't acceptable.  Add an option in
       Tools->Options->Connection to manually configure the browser that the
       client uses.  It will default to "sensible-browser."
     - 19_delete-http: The webservice plugin doesn't delete http requests,
       which causes lastfm to use up more and more memory at each song change.
       (This seems to average about 200-300k per song, according to top.)  One
       delete was commented out (why?) and another was missing.  Add/enable
     - 20_noupdates: Downloading binary updates and plugins is a bad idea in a
       packaged situation.  This aggressively removes any code that checks for
       new versions, that downloads updates and plugins, or that configures
       media devices or players.  None of it relates to the linux client, and
       removing it shrinks the app by about 150K.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * Change 13_alsa: now it's a whole new ALSA plugin that
     builds instead of
     - Adds default device support for those who need dmix.
     - Full device names appear in the soundcard combobox
     - No need to restart app after changing devices: just stop and
       play again.
     - Easier to debug. :)
   * Add 18_valgrind: fix a few memory leaks that valgrind reported.
 lastfm (1: unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream.
   * New patches:
     - 02_noitunes: Linux doesn't have iTunes, so don't build things that we
       will never use.
   * Update older patches to account for source changes:
     - 00_build: no need to patch, but we do need to fix
       some misbehaving makefiles (see #345388).
     - 11_history: remove friendly history names; implemented upstream.
     - 17_draglabel: no more CPU load problem, so remove.  But do show all
       words in multi-word labels.
     - Other minor tweaks to patches so they apply cleanly.
 lastfm (1:1.0.7-0.04) unstable; urgency=low
   * Use cdbs.  Makes patch admin easier.
   * Update and reorder patches:
     - patches < 10 are needed for a working package
     - patches >= 10 are bugfixes / features
   * Remove 04_oss in favor of 13_alsa ALSA "default" device patch.
   * Link to libasound2 again and remove dependency on alsa-oss
   * Update app icons to match those for Windows / Mac.
 lastfm (1:1.0.7-0.03) unstable; urgency=low
   * I'm using the OSS patch.  So don't link to libasound2 and add alsa-oss to
     package dependencies.
   * Add sharutils to build dependencies
   * Use absolute path for ldconfig
 lastfm (1:1.0.7-0.02) unstable; urgency=low
   * Compile with Debian testing version of Qt
   * Add 10_draglabel to prevent massive cpu usage when using Qt >= 4.2.
   * Make 04_oss a little more aggressive so we don't compile code we'll
     never use.
   * Bring packaging a little closer to official packaging for 1.1.90
 lastfm (1:1.0.7-0.01) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream
   * Use version epoch since 1.0.7 < 1.1.90.
   * Update patches from 1.1.90.
   * Add mine:
     - 01_tray: Single click in tray show/hides main window
     - 02_history:
       . Max history items changed from 9 to 50
       . Give history items friendly descriptions
     - 03_loveban: Add love/ban items to Recently Played context menu
     - 04_oss: Use OSS instead of ALSA and add aoss to .desktop command
     - 05_timebar: Show a timebar even when not scrobbling
     - 06_icons: Adjust icon and library paths
     - 07_scrobble: Possibly fix a minor scrobbling issue
     - 08_sensiblebrowser: use "sensible-browser" instead of "firefox" for now
     - 09_showradio: undefine HIDE_RADIO so we have an interface.
