      This subsection is to separate the (many) changes of the Resolver in this

      (NEWS).

      Executive summary:
      * Changes to the order in which solutions are offered in conflict
        resolutions, so upgrades or keeps are preferred over removal of many
        packages
        (Closes: #341963, #359171, #365644, #453935, #569315, #570377, #574132,
                 #588202, #610845, #651410, #651947, #653284, #661678, #722211,
                 #798240)

      A more detailed description of individual changes follows:
      * Modify several resolver scores config variables
          ::ProblemResolver::RequiredScore  = 8  (was: 4)
          ::ProblemResolver::ImportantScore = 4  (was: 5)
          ::ProblemResolver::StandardScore  = 2  (was: 3)
          ::ProblemResolver::OptionalScore  = 1
          ::ProblemResolver::ExtraScore     = 0  (was: -1)
      * Add new score for removal of obsolete package and corresponding config
        variable ::ProblemResolver::RemoveObsoleteScore
        Default to 310 to allow for easier upgrades and to counter the penalty
        to remove packages (default -300).
      * Add new score for partial solutions cancelling the removal of a package
        and corresponding config variable ::ProblemResolver::CancelRemovalScore
        Resolver actions cancelling the removal (or purge) of a package
        requested to be removed/purged were not being penalised, now they are
        (default -300).
      * Only add Preserve{Auto,Manual}Score if the packages are actually
        installed
        Without this, the algorithm was assigning extra score +60 (default
        PreserveManualScore) for packages which remained uninstalled
        (were not to be installed) and when the user actually didn't select
        them manually -- even if the justification was "because it is the
        to-be-installed version of a manually installed package".
      * Change the default score of several ::ProblemResolver config variables
        * ::StepScore to -10 (was +70)
        * ::PreserveManualScore to +20 (was +60)
        * ::UpgradeScore to +30 (was 0)
        * ::Keep-All-Level to 10000 (was 20000)
      * Change how the costs are compared
      * Apply InstallScore and UpgradeScore also when the packages are not
        "manual"

    - Internal changes:
      * configure.ac: Allow to disable check for Boost library headers
        individually
      * Avoid extra code calling apt_load_cache() when already loaded
      * [cmdline] Rejecting a solution advances to the next one only
      * [General] Update FSF's postal address everywhere, drop duplicated
        boilerplates

    - Documentation:
      * manpage:
        * Minor clarification about "install" example (Closes: #268698)

      * ja.po: Japanese translation by Takuma Yamada (Closes: #819603)
      * Actually enable Dutch (nl) documentation translation by Frans
        Spiesschaert

  * d/control: Drop Build-dependencies present for a long time but which
    haven't been used in the last few years:
    - libboost-python-dev
    - libboost-serialization-dev

aptitude (0.7.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release. Please see /usr/share/aptitude/NEWS for a change
    log with more details.

    - New features:
      * 'Escape' key cancels input dialogs (search, limit, etc.) (Closes:
        #493322)
      * Extend "firstchar" grouping policy to optionally use source
        package names.
      * [curses] Add 'New Source Package View' to Views menu (thanks
        Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo, really closes: #497206), with some
        updates and minor modifications, like more complex grouping.
      * [curses] Use Yellow/Brown colour to highlight downgrades (Closes:
        #584510)
      * Log file now contains version information for most actions
        (Closes: #222585)
      * Save selection state of packages to dpkg database (Closes:
        #137771)
      * Consider packages "unknown" to dpkg as not to install. (Closes:
        #328616) The behaviour of scheduled aptitude actions will be
        preserved.

    - Bug fixes:
      * Disable strings gathered for translation (Closes: #790568)
      * Change to try to make updated status stats more clear (Closes:
        #458351)
      * [cmdline] Correctly print when a package should be purged (Closes:
        #798286)
      * [curses] With the option of mini-buffer prompts enabled,
        cancellation of the "Quit confirmation" with 'Escape' or 'Ctrl-g'
        does not cause the dialog/prompt to stop working (Closes: #607118)
      * [cmdline] Warn when package cannot be marked/unmarked auto
        (Closes: #498240)
      * Install signal handlers and do clean-up when terminating abruptly
        (Closes: #558352)
      * [curses] Set better ordering for groups of Preview Actions
        (Closes: #434352)

    - User visible changes:
      * Change error string of source_policy_parser to be the same as the
        rest.
      * [curses] Improve titles and descriptions of views.

    - Internal changes:
      * Improve retrieval of source package information with (upcoming)
        APT 1.1. Thanks to David Kalnischkies for the suggestion and
        implementation advice.
      * New helper dpkg_selections.{h,cc}, to help to manage saving
        selections to the dpkg database (--set-selections)

    - Documentation:
      * Guide/User's Manual: Remove grouping policy "hier" from
        doc/??/aptitude.xml (the categorial/hierarchical browser features
        were removed in version 0.7)

    - Translation updates:
      * Russian by Lev Lamberov (Closes: #798485, #769428)

  * Add lintian override for spelling-error-in-binary "ressize", seems to
    be from "resource size" or such. Cannot be found in the source code.
  * Fix spelling errors in the two previous changelog entries as reported
    by Lintian.
  * Add lintian override for symlink to /usr/share/common-license/…
  * Remove explicit build-dependency on g++ >= 4:5.2, no more needed.
  * Detabify previous changelog entry.

    MIA team. Every team member is welcome to re-add himself to Uploaders
    once he's active again. Thanks for all your work, Daniel and Daniel!

aptitude (0.7.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release.
    - Bug fixes:
      * Fix for wrong reported size of deleted files with 'autoclean' on
        32-bit arches (Closes: #499872)
      * Be explicit when packages are already installed, cannot be
        removed/purged because they are not installed, and similar
        (Closes: #421469).
      * Check string formats for columns in both curses and command line
        interface, and forbid characters which can lead to cwidget
        assertions and program crashes.  (Closes: #497129, #532662).
    - Documentation:
      * Quick help (help.txt):
        * Document 'l' (Limit Display) in quick help (Closes: #514541)
        * Improve description of '_' (Purge) (Closes: #495326)
        * Improve the description of the search shortcut, and point more
          clearly to search patterns in the full documentation
      * man page:
        * Fix example of '-F' with current and candidate versions
          (Closes: #752517)
      * Guide/User's Manual:
        * Upgrade doc/??/aptitude.xml documents from DocBook XML 4.2 to
          4.5
        * Use XHTML 1.0 rather than HTML 4.01, at least to have something
	  from this decade/century.  The resulting documentation still
          does not fully validate (see #496724), I think that due to
          bugs/problems of docbook-xsl conversions using invalid elements in
	  the different standards (tried HTML 4.0, 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and 1.1).
        * Generate 'alt' tag for images in HTML documentation (see #496724)
        * In "Customizing the package list", fix order of variables
          ::UI::Package-Status-Format and ::UI::Package-Header-Format and
	  their explanations
    - User visible changes:
      * Slightly change description of shortcut 'g' in title bar
        (Closes: #247487)
    - Internal changes:
      * search_graph.h, fix problem with code which was working for many
        years (with boost 1.55 and many versions before), but now the
	straightforward option to convert boost::optional to bool does not
        work with gcc-5.2 and boost-1.58, so use .is_initialized() instead.
      * solution_item.cc, copy string of package name coming from libapt
        because it does not guarantee that the string is valid for all of the
        time span that we need it, to not show garbage that it happens
        sometimes (Closes: #795150, #795028)
      * match.cc, pkg_info_screen.cc, reason_fragment.cc: remove and
        modify code relying on pkg.Section() (from apt PkgIterator), it is
        deprecated code and it will get removed soon according to the apt team
        (Versions have Sections, Package in abstract doesn't have unique
        Sections)
      * aptitude_resolver.cc: use std::unique_ptr instead of deprecated
        SPtrArray
      * Add compatibility for APT 1.1:
        * Create DepIterator values from Dependency pointers on-the-fly,
          where required
        * Adjust AcqQueuedFile() for changed signatures of overriden
          methods
      * Improving C++11 compatibilty mode:
        * Convert std::auto_ptr (deprecated in C++11) to unique_ptr
        * Convert boost::scoped_ptr (deprecated in C++11) to std::unique_ptr
        * Convert instances of boost::shared_ptr, make_shared, and
          weak_ptr to be explicitly prefixed by boost::, otherwise they clash
	  or have problems compiling with the new C++11 std::shared_ptr and
          analogues (many were not converted in the previous version).
      * Remove unused function serialize_pattern_list()
      * Remove unused function wcsempty()
      * Improvements of the autoconf/automake infrastructure.
       * No more generate a dummy ChangeLog file just to please automake.
       * Clean up some more leftover files in "make maintainer-clean"
       * Use 'cp -u' when copying gtest and gmock, so they don't need to be
         recompiled every time
    - Translation updates:
      * Swedish by Josef Andersson (Closes: #792911)
      * Fix typos/syntax oddities and translation issues, thanks Jens Seidel
       (Closes: #381702)

  [ Manuel A. Fernandez Montecelo ]
  * New upstream release.
    - Changes in the versioning scheme and changelog (to follow loosely
      the Semantic Version specification)
    - Feature removal: The content-wise outdated and
      not-multiarch-compatible categorical browser has been removed. The
      Debtags browser has replaced most of its functionality already. Local
      package groups are no more available, though.  The removal discussion
      has taken place in #686646. (Closes: #686124, #686142, #686646 as
      well as LP: #1082198).
    - Changes to allow to compile with C++11 compatibilty mode (prompted by
      changes in the toolchain in Debian) (Closes: #777778)
    - Fix reported installed size change when installing/deinstalling
      packages which are bigger than 2 GiB (int type size 32 bits).  Thanks
      Benny Baumann and Jason Rhinelander for the report and info, and Sven
      Joachim for the patch.  (Closes: #759769)
    - Changes in automake files to be able to use current automake
      versions.
    - Documentation:
      - Previously missing trigger-related package states are now
        documented. (Closes: #770073, #771305, #771704)
      - Minesweeper: Fixed save/load keybindings in help.
        (Closes: #736934)

      - Czech by Miroslav Kure (Closes: #758226)
      - Russian by Yuri Kozlov (Closes: #760812)
      - German man page translation by Mario Blättermann and
        Jens Seidel (Closes: #762340)
      - Catalan by Orestes Mas (Closes: #771618)
      - French documentation translation by Cédric Boutillier
        (Closes: #773807)
      - Italian documentation translation by Beatrice Torracca
        (Closes: #776706)
      - Dutch by Frans Spiesschaert (Closes: #778425)

  [ Axel Beckert ]
  * Apply wrap-and-sort.
  * No more install files related to the categorical browser.
  * Update Vcs-Browser header to use cgit and HTTPS.
  * Declare compliance with Debian Policy 3.9.6. (No changes needed.)
  * debian/rules:
    + Remove override_dh_builddeb: xz compression is default nowadays.
    + Remove obsolete x from [ "x$var" != "x" ] comparisons.
  * Add myself to Uploaders.
  * Cherry-pick 3593bdcb, 2a5a8b25, and 4b24b358 from upstream to cope
    with Boost 1.58 which has been uploaded to unstable during the
    libstdc++6 transition, but after the 0.7 upstream release.
  * Temporarily bump g++ dependency from 4:3.2.2-0 to 4:5.2 for the
    gcc-5/libstdc++6 transition.
  * Add build-dependency on automake.

  * New upstream release.
    - Update to tasks support: task packages, multi-arch, syntax

      Task packages (introduced with tasksel 3.0) are
      meta-packages which define the dependencies of tasks.  The
      packages themselves have always worked but the 'tasks'
      grouping policy and '?task' search term did not support
      them.  This update corrects for this.

      As a result of this change to tasksel all Debian tasks now
      function exactly like meta-packages. (Closes: #382631)

      The syntax for installing tasks from the command line has
      been updated.  It now supports specifying an arch and
      requires the same syntax as apt-utils ('^' must be the last
      part of the name).  Examples:

        # aptitude install gnome-desktop^
        # aptitude install ssh-server^:armel

      This avoids ambiguity that may arise when a task and
      package have the same name.

      ListUpdate was too coarse to suit download_update_manager properly

    - aptitude no longer requires log4cxx; dropped that build dependency.

      I hope this will solve some of the random crashes, particularly

      it's hard to know.

    - aptitude should build correctly against either the current ept

      (Closes: #581009)

  * Applied upstream patches to make the tests build when GTK+ is
    disabled.

  * Weakened the build dependency on libboost-dev, since this upstream
    release no longer requires 1.42.

  * aptitude now requries gtest and google-mock for its test suite;
    added build dependencies.

    This caused actual build failures, so I'm surprised I didn't get bugs
    about it.  I don't know if this will be a permanent state of affairs;
    a configure test could take care of the one thing that's a serious
    problem (a published API reversed the order of its arguments (!)).

  * New upstream release.

    - On the command-line, package versions can be chosen by codename
      (Closes: #547707).

    - Switch back from dpkg-parsechangelog to parsechangelog; they both
      require an external dependency and parsechangelog is faster
      (Closes: #546280).

    - Don't crash if the Xapian database fails to load (Closes: #512998).

    - Recognize --no-gui in all builds, not just aptitude-gtk.
      (Closes: #546406)

    - Don't discard errors after dpkg fails (Closes: #548879, #548889).

    - Block SIGWINCH by default so nothing interferes with cwidget
      catching it. (Closes: #547212)

    - Mention build-dep in "aptitude help" (Closes: #547151).

    - Make --arch-only behave correctly (Closes: #547266).

    - Make the "hold" command in the GTK+ interface hold packages
      instead of deleting them (Closes: #549897).

    - Mention Get-Root-Command in the manual when it describes
      auto-switching-to-root. (Closes: #548657)

    - Fix the default value of Get-Root-Command in the manual so it
      matches the actual code. (Closes: #550057)

  * New upstream release.

    - Support for guaranteed ordering of solutions produced by the
    dependency resolver. (Closes: #514820, #514930, #524221, #473296)
  
    - The dependency resolver will continue searching for a short time
      after finding a solution, in case a better solution turns up.
      (Closes: #482825)
  
    - The GTK+ interface should no longer crash while trying to find
      dependency chains. (Closes: #514714)
  
    - aptitude is now more careful about automatically canceling the
      removal of an unused package, to avoid triggering a conflict with
      other packages (for instance, packages included in a dependency
      solution). (Closes: #522881, #524667)
  
    - The curses interface no longer warns users when they purge an
      already-removed Essental package. (Closes: #513472)
  
    - The curses interface no longer computes an excessive amount of
      dependency information every time a package is highlighted.
      (Closes: #516296)
  
    - Fixed incorrect formatting in some command-line error messages.
      (Closes: #516296, #514676)
  
    - Fix really stupid column wrapping in "aptitude why".
      (Closes: #516389)
  
    - Translation updates:

      + Asturian (Closes: #518981, #519693)
      + Danish (Closes: #512384)
      + German
      + Italian
      + Norwegian Bokmål (Closes: #510977)
      + Spanish (Closes: #517272)
      + Swedish (Closes: #511238, #514011)
  
  * Change the reportbug script to run in the C locale, so program output
    that's inserted doesn't get translated.
  
  * Change the description of aptitude-gtk to say that it has a GUI
    interface. (Closes: #514545, #521152)
  
  * Give aptitude-gtk a versioned dependency on aptitude. (Closes: #516527)
  
  * Include .desktop file contributed by Fabit Greffrath.  I know that
    using su-to-root is not ideal, but since aptitude-gtk can't be used to
    install / remove packages unless it's run as root, this is probably a
    good interim approach.  Eventually we'll hook up the code so that the
    GTK+ frontend can do what the curses frontend does (automagically
    become root and preserve selections). (Closes: #521255)

  * New build-deps: liblog4cxx10-dev, inkscape.
