Closes: 676102 679240
 live-build (3.0~a51-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * For consistency, respecting config/environment too for both chroot
     and binary environments (but the content of sepcific environments
     for either chroot or binary still has precedence over the generic
   * Changing default binary.list filename to binary.contents to make it
     more explicit and not to be confused with package lists.
   * Automatically include intel-microcode when building with firmware
     and non-free enabled.
   * Redirecting rmdir output in postrm for live-build-cron properly
     (Closes: #676102).
   * Removing alpha and hppa stub support, both architectures have been
     dropped for wheezy in debian.
   * Switching from smbfs to cifs-utils (Closes: #679240).
   * Switching to xz compression in source and binary packages.
