boinc 5.8.17-1 source package in Ubuntu


boinc (5.8.17-1) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Frank S. Thomas ]
  * New upstream release.
    - BOINC Manager:
      - Broadened "Options" dialog so that labels does not get truncated.
        (closes: #389840)
      - Display project names in "Reset Project" dialog correctly. (LP: #83708)
      - Fixed run mode entries in "Activity" menu. (LP: #93850)
  * debian/control:
    - Bumped versioned Build-Depends on libcurl3-openssl-dev to >= 7.15.5
      which is required for the bandwith-throttling feature. Also removed the
      alternative on libcurl-ssl-dev because this was only added to aid
      backporting BOINC to sarge but sarge has only libcurl3-dev/7.13.2.
    - Added libxml2-utils to Build-Depends for xmllint which is used in the
      unit-test target in debian/rules.
  * debian/rules:
    - Added the unit-test target which uses xmllint to check if the XML
      conffiles cc_config.xml and global_prefs_override.xml are well-formed.
    - Since backporting to sarge is not possible any more, also removed the
      compatibility code for sarge's version of dpkg-architecture.
    - On ppc64 use ppc64-linux-gnu as BOINC platform (which is the official
      BOINC platform) instead of powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu.
  * Switched patch system from dpatch to quilt.
  * debian/patches/:
    - Updated 001_amd64_disable_platform_reset.patch for the new release.
    - Updated 003_use_sensible-browser.patch for the new release.
    - Added 101_gcc_4.3_fixes.patch that fixes a FTBFS with GCC 4.3, thanks to
      Martin Michlmayr <email address hidden>. (closes: #413307)
  * debian/boinc-client.postinst: Change the permission and ownership of
    boinc-client's conffiles from 0644 boinc:boinc to 0640 root:boinc for
    gui_rpc_auth.cfg and to 0644 root:boinc for the rest but only if no
    "stat override" exists. (closes: #407678)
  * debian/boinc-client.postrm: Changed postrm so it does not fail if debconf
    is not available. (closes: #416663)
  * Replaced the log_flags.xml conffile with cc_config.xml:
    - Added debian/boinc-client.preinst which removes the obsolete conffile
      /etc/boinc-client/log_flags.xml if it was not modified locally or
      renames it to /etc/boinc-client/log_flags.xml.dpkg-bak if it was.
    - Added debian/boinc-client.NEWS which explains that the conffile
      /etc/boinc-client/log_flags.xml is now obsolete and is superseded by
  * Added the run-boincmgr shell script as example to the boinc-manager
    package. This script sources /etc/default/boinc-client and chdir into
    $BOINC_DIR before starting boincmgr so that the BOINC Manager can read the
    password from $BOINC_DIR/gui_rpc_auth.cfg file. See Ubuntu bug #48768 for
    more details.
  * debian/boinc-client.README.Debian: Added paragraph "Mass deployment of
    boinc-client that automatically attach to an Account Manager" which points
    (at the moment) to T-Bone's post on the pkg-boinc-devel mailing list.
  * debian/boinc-client.install: Install the switcher binary into
  * debian/boinc-dev.{install,links}:
    - Don't install lib/error_numbers.h, lib/gui_rpc_client.h,
      lib/std_fixes.h, config.h and version.h manually because they are now
      installed by the upstream makefiles.
    - Added lib/md5_file.h to boinc-dev as requested by Alex Owen.
  * Added ca-certificates to boinc-client's Depends field and create the
    ca-bundle.crt symlink (which points to /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates) in
    Debian's default BOINC data directory (/var/lib/boinc-client/) in
  * Updated boinc_cmd's and boincmgr's manual pages for the new release.
  * Updated debian/copyright for the new release.
