Previous versions of binfmt-support were maintained solely as a Debian
package.  The following is the complete changelog up to the point where
binfmt-support gained its own upstream existence.

binfmt-support (2.0.16) unstable; urgency=low

  * Use dh-autoreconf to keep autotools output up to date, especially for
    new ports.
  * Upgrade to Automake 1.14 and Gnulib 20130805-stable.  gnulib/gets.patch
    is no longer needed.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Wed, 13 Nov 2013 16:04:25 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.15) unstable; urgency=low

  * Build-depend on debhelper (>= 9~) directly rather than requiring a
    Lintian override for use of 8.9.0.
  * Upgrade to Automake 1.13.2 and autotools-dev 20130515.1.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Fri, 07 Jun 2013 11:38:48 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * Install Upstart job on Debian as well, following new recommendations in
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UpstartCompatibleInitScripts.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Wed, 22 May 2013 09:23:42 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.13) unstable; urgency=low

  * Drop python build-dependency; fuse is hardly ever available in
    autobuilding environments anyway, so it's ineffective.  The test suite
    is still useful for manual testing.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Fri, 07 Dec 2012 13:55:37 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix ineffective --find test.
  * Don't show disabled formats in --find output (closes: #689247).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sun, 30 Sep 2012 22:25:11 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * Backport Gnulib commit 66712c23388e93e5c518ebc8515140fa0c807348 to stop
    assuming gets.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 18 Sep 2012 00:05:32 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * If a binary format is already enabled according to the kernel, which can
    happen in chroots if it was installed in the host system, then continue
    as gracefully as we can manage rather than exiting non-zero (closes:
    #680349).
  * Upgrade to Automake 1.11.6.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 30 Jul 2012 10:36:59 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.9) unstable; urgency=low

  * Make src/tests/binfmt_misc.py compatible with Python 3.
  * Build with V=1 so that tools such as blhc can scan more effectively for
    missing build flags.
  * Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.
  * Upgrade to Autoconf 2.69, Automake 1.11.5, and Gnulib 20120404-stable.
    gnulib/lib/argp-parse.patch is no longer needed.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 26 Jun 2012 00:22:20 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Only print informational messages on non-Linux systems if stderr is a
    terminal.  This allows saving a couple of processes from the Upstart
    job.
  * Convert to dpkg-buildflags, using debhelper v9.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sun, 20 Nov 2011 17:24:19 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix display tests to actually test the output of --display.
  * Upgrade to Gnulib 20110908-stable.
  * Display a useful error message rather than crashing if asked to display
    a non-existent binary format (closes: #643756, LP: #792601).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Thu, 29 Sep 2011 12:38:22 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Remove /var/lib/binfmts on purge (closes: #635449).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 26 Jul 2011 09:41:55 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Update Vcs-Bzr field for Alioth changes.
  * Add an Upstart job, installed only on Ubuntu-derived distributions.
  * Upgrade to Autoconf 2.68 and Gnulib 20110609-stable.
  * Remove temporary test directory when skipping a test.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sun, 10 Jul 2011 01:15:31 +0100

binfmt-support (2.0.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add a basic test for --find.
  * Use 'fusermount -u' rather than umount when running tests.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 22 Mar 2011 10:39:11 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Mark binfmt-support Multi-Arch: foreign.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 22 Feb 2011 12:26:13 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Upload to unstable.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 08 Feb 2011 10:22:00 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.1) experimental; urgency=low

  * Add a --find option to print the list of interpreters for an executable.
    Requested by Loïc Minier.
  * Fix crash if get_import returns NULL (LP: #686115).
  * Fix hexadecimal expansion to ensure that we only ever parse exactly two
    hex digits.
  * Use mem* functions rather than str* on binary data when finding
    interpreters.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 25 Jan 2011 14:30:52 +0000

binfmt-support (2.0.0) experimental; urgency=low

  * Rewrite in C (closes: #602920).
  * Upgrade to GPLv3 or later, mostly due to Gnulib.
  * Use a separate build directory.
  * Add a test suite.  This does nothing useful during a default Debian
    package build as it currently requires FUSE, but it can be run by hand.
  * Add option parsing to run-detectors, mainly so that we can have an
    --admindir option for use by the test suite but also to provide a useful
    --help.
  * Remove cache directory hack, no longer necessary now that we aren't
    pulling in Perl at boot time.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 22 Nov 2010 11:15:58 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.20) experimental; urgency=low

  * Fix =~ operator typo in Binfmt::Format.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 16 Nov 2010 17:57:31 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.19) experimental; urgency=low

  * Drop error/warning wrapping; it was cute in 2000, but I find it annoying
    now.  Use the 'say' feature from Perl 5.10.
  * Convert from 'perl -w' to 'use warnings'.
  * Strip trailing whitespace from values in database and format files.
  * Upgrade to debhelper 8.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 16 Nov 2010 16:16:09 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.18) unstable; urgency=low

  * Convert to source format 3.0 (native).
  * Only warn about corrupted files in /var/lib/binfmts/ when we can't
    continue without their contents (LP: #547052).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sat, 27 Mar 2010 15:30:40 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.17) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Exit cleanly on non-Linux systems, rather than causing inconvenient
    knock-on errors (closes: #565109).

  [ Loïc Minier ]
  * Add a new optional field "credentials" which when set to "yes"
    corresponds to the binfmt-misc "C" flag; this allows running setuid root
    binaries with the interpreter; LP: #519228.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Wed, 17 Feb 2010 14:06:05 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.16) unstable; urgency=low

  * Check whether modprobe is available before using it, this time in the
    init script too (closes: #567979).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 01 Feb 2010 17:40:51 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.15) unstable; urgency=low

  * Ignore modprobe failures in init script (thanks, Philipp Weis; closes:
    #549113).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Thu, 01 Oct 2009 19:18:10 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.14) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Tormod Volden ]
  * Maintain a cache of binary format registration instructions, and use
    them from shell at boot time if possible to avoid the Perl slow path
    (LP: #320822).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 15 Sep 2009 12:48:37 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.13) unstable; urgency=low

  * Upgrade to debhelper 7. Uses override targets, so requires 7.0.50.
  * Check that /etc/default/rcS exists before sourcing it.
  * Stop hardcoding path to update-binfmts.
  * Remove Default-Stop from init script; cf. changelog entry for 1.2.8.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 07 Sep 2009 02:19:38 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * Moved to bzr.debian.org; add Vcs-Bzr control field.
  * Some packages (hi, mono) occasionally seem to try to remove formats that
    weren't installed and thus don't have an entry in the administration
    directory. Make this non-fatal, since the state is already as requested.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 26 May 2009 10:13:28 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.11) unstable; urgency=low

  * Recommend POSIX-compliant shell fragments in README.Debian.
  * Remove stray 'closedir ADMINDIR' in act_display (closes: #482482).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Fri, 23 May 2008 09:20:19 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.10) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix brown-paper-bag syntax error in Binfmt::Format (thanks, Bastian
    Kleineidam; closes: #418343).
  * Suppress perl warning about commas within qw().

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 09 Apr 2007 18:49:57 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.9) unstable; urgency=low

  * Mount /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc nodev, noexec, and nosuid, to guard
    against possible future kernel security vulnerabilities.
  * Suppress warning on --test --import if the given format file has no
    detector line (closes: #383287).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sun, 08 Apr 2007 21:32:00 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Disabling binfmt-support on system shutdown is rather pointless, so stop
    doing it.
  * Move debhelper from Build-Depends-Indep to Build-Depends (for clean
    target).
  * Use debhelper v4.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue,  2 May 2006 23:27:09 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Remove outdated skeleton comments in init script, since there's very
    little of the skeleton left.
  * Add LSB info to init script.
  * Use log_daemon_msg from lsb-base (>= 3.0-6) for more policy-compliant
    init script output.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Thu, 27 Oct 2005 13:17:31 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Mount binfmt_misc filesystem as 'binfmt_misc' rather than 'none'
    (thanks, Roucaries Bastien; closes: #328827).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sat, 17 Sep 2005 17:18:38 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.5) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Stop the postinst/prerm from exiting non-zero if update-binfmts fails,
    for example if you're running something other than Linux
    (closes: #322193).
  * Policy version 3.6.2. No changes required.
  * Update GPL notices with the FSF's new address.

  [ Scott James Remnant ]
  * Use lsb functions in init script.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue, 30 Aug 2005 17:48:51 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.4) hoary; urgency=low

  * Move binfmt-support to start at 90 rather than 20

 -- Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>  Fri, 10 Dec 2004 18:19:02 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Convert binfmt-support(8) to the -mdoc macro set.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Thu,  1 Apr 2004 13:49:02 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Document the 'detector' option in format files.
  * Don't bother trying to unload the binfmt_misc kernel module when
    stopping, since (a) it means we run into a kernel bug, (b) it means we
    have to keep track of whether the module was loaded by the administrator
    before starting, and (c) it's unimportant anyway. Reassigns #155570 to
    kernel.
  * Policy version 3.5.9: no changes required.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sat, 26 Apr 2003 19:07:39 +0100

binfmt-support (1.2.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Cosmetic improvements to debian/rules.
  * Make update-binfmts(8) render properly under groff's utf8 device: in
    particular, use '\-' rather than '-' where a real dash is needed.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 24 Feb 2003 01:48:43 +0000

binfmt-support (1.2.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * Support for userspace detectors, at the request of the Mono folks. See
    /usr/share/doc/binfmt-support/detectors for the rationale and design.

    This involved substantial rearrangements of the code, so we now have a
    couple of Perl modules in the Binfmt:: namespace. They don't have a
    published interface, so writing code using them directly is a bad idea.

  * Check that interpreters (and the new detectors) are executable.
  * Localize all filehandles.
  * Policy version 3.5.8: drop /usr/doc symlink.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Wed, 11 Dec 2002 13:46:12 +0000

binfmt-support (1.1.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Check (again - how did I lose this?) for the existence of $register, not
    $procdir, when deciding whether to try loading the kernel module
    (closes: #134206).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Tue,  5 Mar 2002 21:37:32 +0000

binfmt-support (1.1.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * The "phone me if you want a bug fixed" release. :-)
  * Apply more careful logic to loading and mounting binfmt_misc on newer
    kernels (thanks, Daniel Silverstone; closes: #131236).
  * Remove emacs local variables from this changelog.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sun,  3 Feb 2002 20:37:30 +0000

binfmt-support (1.1.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Recommend in README.Debian that packages using --import conflict with
    binfmt-support (<< 1.1.2).

binfmt-support (1.1.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix thinko that meant some warnings weren't printed.
  * Make much more careful use of return codes throughout.
  * When deciding whether to load the binfmt_misc module, check for the
    existence of /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register, not merely the
    directory. It seems that recent kernels can leave the directory hanging
    around even after the module is removed (closes: #129400, #129621).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sat, 19 Jan 2002 19:14:58 +0000

binfmt-support (1.1.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Return non-fatally if binfmt_misc couldn't be loaded (see #129170).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Mon, 14 Jan 2002 13:52:32 +0000

binfmt-support (1.1.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * Implement an --import option to allow packages to install format files
    without depending on binfmt-support. All format files will be imported
    by binfmt-support when it's eventually installed (closes: #119694).
  * Update lots of documentation in line with this.
  * Install the directory /usr/share/binfmts for format files.
  * Don't attempt to load and unload the binfmt_misc kernel module in --test
    mode.

  * Use Text::Wrap rather than my own wrap() function.
  * General code cleanup.
  * get_binfmt() now returns a hash, not an array.
  * Apply better nroff style to the man page.
  * Policy version 3.5.6.
  * Perl policy version 1.20.

binfmt-support (1.0.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Check whether modprobe is available before using it (closes: #106090).

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Sat, 21 Jul 2001 17:18:10 +0100

binfmt-support (1.0.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Updated to policy version 3.5.2: no changes required.
  * Remove duplicate conffiles entry.

  * Support recent -ac kernels which require binfmt_misc to be mounted as a
    filesystem. For now, it seems neatest to mount it over
    /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc, but that may change (especially as it's not
    clear whether that directory will always exist).
  * If disabling all binary formats, also unmount the filesystem if
    necessary, and unload the kernel module. This will help upgrading in the
    future if the kernel interface is changed again.

 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Fri, 27 Apr 2001 11:58:01 +0100

binfmt-support (1.0.4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Uploaded to Debian (closes: #78872).
  * New maintainer address.
  * Standards-Version: 3.5.1: no changes required.
  * Use debhelper v3.
  * Updated to new Perl policy.
  * This is Architecture: all, so use the binary-indep target in
    debian/rules rather than the binary-arch target.
  * Started updating the version number automagically.
  * Pointed URL in copyright file to the package pool.

  * --display can now be called without an argument to display all known
    binary formats and whether they are enabled; its output looks better,
    too.
  * Improved --test option.
  * Don't hardcode ENOENT any more, anticipating future Hurd support.
  * Print an error message on startup if the operating system isn't Linux
    (although the package can still be installed).
  * Recoded the option parsing and the actions into dispatch tables.
  * Really test for existence of /usr/sbin/update-binfmts in init script.
  * Fixed formatting error in man page (\x is an escape sequence).
  * "Debian GNU/Linux" -> "Debian GNU".

binfmt-support (1.0.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * D'oh. update-binfmts should have been in /usr/sbin all along. Updated
    README.Debian to account for this.
  * Included the GPL in the source package.
  * Improved --install/--remove logic:
    - Remove entries even if their interpreter has changed, otherwise
      deliberately changing interpreters becomes rather awkward. We only
      need to make sure that the package is the same.
    - --install will now disable existing /proc entries as long as
      /var/lib/binfmts is consistent. Without this, you could sometimes end
      up with multiple entries in /proc with the same name, due to a kernel
      bug. Added some extra checking to make this even less likely.
    - Don't warn about there being no /proc entry when removing. This can
      easily happen on upgrades, and it also helps maintainer scripts to be
      idempotent.
  * Running --enable and/or --disable multiple times now doesn't create
    multiple entries in /proc with the same name either.

binfmt-support (1.0.2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Standards-Version: 3.2.1: no changes required.
  * Build-Depends-Indep: rather than Build-Depends:.
  * Use debhelper DH_COMPAT=2.
  * debian/rules: cleanup.
  * Don't 'use diagnostics'; it's slow.
  * Some additions to the man page.
  * Oops, remember to update $VERSION this time.
  * Added debian/TODO.
  * Added note in README.Debian about requiring binfmt_misc.

binfmt-support (1.0.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Improved long description (sysadmins can use update-binfmts too).
  * Standards-Version: 3.1.1, Build-Depends: line.

 -- Colin Watson <cjw44@flatline.org.uk>  Tue, 30 May 2000 23:18:58 +0100

binfmt-support (1.0) unstable; urgency=low

  * Initial Release.
