“xz-utils” 5.1.1alpha+20120614-1 source package in The Quantal Quetzal
xz-utils (5.1.1alpha+20120614-1) unstable; urgency=low * New snapshot, taken from upstream commit f1675f76. - liblzma: BCJ filters would return a spurious LZMA_BUF_ERROR result in certain circumstances. As a result, the xz tool could produce inappropriate "Compressed data is corrupt" or "Unexpected end of input" failures (reported in XZ Embedded as Fedora bug 735408). - "xz -v -v --list" prints the minimal XZ Utils version needed to decompress a stream. - "xz --robot -v --list" formats filenames more plainly. - xzgrep does not fail unconditionally when the decompressor dies with SIGPIPE due to unconsumed output any more. This makes the exit status from commands such as "xzgrep -q" and "xzgrep -l" more predictable and convenient for scripts. - examples/xz_pipe_decomp.c did not check correctly for truncated input. - There is a new set of sample programs. The old ones have been renamed to examples_old but are still maintained. * liblzma: - If dlopen() indicates that liblzma.so.2 is loaded, check fewer reserved fields in the stream argument to the lzma_code() function. This prevents out-of-bounds reads when liblzma5 functions are called by code built against liblzma2 (see <http://sourceware.org/PR12977>). - Remove the lzma_code@Base compatibility symbol. Closes: #649522. Thanks to Eduard Bloch. - Install run-time library to /lib so it can be used before /usr is mounted. Closes: #672120. - Configure with --disable-threads for now to avoid needlessly linking to libpthread and librt. * liblzma-dev: - Install an appropriate library for static linking instead of the decompression-only version used to build xzdec. Closes: #673001. Thanks to Anton Tolchanov. - Use the liblzma2-compatible version of lzma_code() in the static library. - Multi-Arch: same. Thanks to Riku Voipio. - Install new examples and revised old examples to /usr/share/doc/liblzma-dev. * xz-utils: - Use update-alternatives to provide lzma, unlzma, lzcat, and the rest of the lz* scripts without conflicting with the lzma package. - Conflicts: lzma versions before before 9.22-1, when it started providing lzma, unlzma, and lzcat through the alternatives system. - Conflicts: and Replaces: xz-lzma. - README.Debian: Update instructions on configuring the package to provide lzma compatibility commands. * Remove xz-lzma package. * Use dpkg-buildflags to retrieve compiler flags, including hardening options. Build-Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1). Closes: #653739. * debian/rules: - build-arch: Simplify by using a double-colon rule instead of a dependency on a dummy noop target. - build-indep: Assume doxygen is available, instead of trying to get by by assuming the caller meant to invoke build-arch when it is missing. Build-Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.2). - Rearrange for clarity. * debian/symbols: Bump the minimal version for lzma_code(), lzma_raw_buffer_decode(), and lzma_raw_buffer_encode(). * Use machine-readable copyright-format 1.0. * Update copyright file. * Standards-Version: 3.9.3 (checked). * debian/changelog.upstream.sh: Use ‘git rev-list | git diff-tree’ instead of ‘git log’ to avoid depending on the build system’s configuration. -- Jonathan Nieder <email address hidden> Sat, 16 Jun 2012 15:03:17 -0500
