wmaker (0.95.8-2) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Doug Torrance ]
  * Remove and replace the deprecated Debian menu.  The list of
    applications is now generated by the wmmenugen utility (with some
    patches from upstream's development branch) from .desktop files in
    /usr/share/applications.  This gives a decent approximation of
    compliance with's menu standards (Closes: #868431).
  * Bump Standards-Version to 4.0.1.
  * Use dh_installwm to register Window Maker with update-alternatives.
    In particular, we add a new file, debian/wmaker.wm, and a new target,
    override_dh_installwm, to debian/rules which sets the priority.
    To accommodate this, we move the manpage from wmaker-common to
  * Bump debhelper compatibility level to 10.
  * Remove explicit call to dh_autoreconf; enabled by default in
    debhelper 10.

  [ Andreas Metzler ]
  * Handle removal of menu-methods on upgrades (orphaned conffiles) with
    debian/wmaker{,-common}.maintscript. Remove generated menufiles
    (etc/GNUstep/Defaults/ and /etc/GNUstep/Defaults/menu.hook
    on upgrades and purge.
  * Because of the moved manpage (which in turn is needed for using
    dh_installwm) wmaker breaks/replaces wmaker-common (<< 0.95.8-2~).
  * Ship our menu as /etc/GNUstep/Defaults/plmenu.Debian and add a symlink
    to it as /usr/share/WindowMaker/menu.hook to make the menu accessible for
    upgraded installations.
