dctrl-tools (2.7) experimental; urgency=low

    The grep-dctrl package has now been renamed to dctrl-tools.  The
    reason is simple: there is now more than one tool in the package.
  
    The new tool is sort-dctrl, and it does what you might think.  See
    the manual page for more information.

grep-dctrl (2.6.6) unstable; urgency=low

    Version number comparisons are now supported.  This subsumes the
    earlier support for numeric comparison, since the version comparison
    routine handles it as a special case.

grep-dctrl (2.6.1) experimental; urgency=low

    This version introduces a new program, sync-available, whose function
    is to sync the dpkg's available database with apt's database (sort of
    dselect update without dselect).

grep-dctrl (2.3) experimental; urgency=low

    Numeric comparisons are now supported.

grep-dctrl (2.2) experimental; urgency=low

    Grep-dctrl now supports using the output of a specified
    command as the default input.  As a result, a
    grep-aptavail command has been introduced; it uses APT's
    available database like grep-available uses dselect's
    available database.

grep-dctrl (2.0) unstable; urgency=low

    This entry describes changes since the last version in stable, 1.9,
    released in July 2001.
  
    Grep-dctrl has been completely rewritten.  It is now faster than
    before, in some cases even an order of magnitude faster, and it is now
    much easier to add new features.
  
    Speaking of new features, the major addition since 1.9 is the ability
    to use the full descriptive power of propositional calculus to
    combining searches.  Basically, putting --and between two old-style
    searches combines them with AND, and --or does the same with OR.
    There is also a --not.  See the grep-dctrl(1) manual page for more
    information.
  
    The option -c now is synonymous with --count.
  
    There is a new -d switch that selects for display the _short description_
    (the first line of the "Description" field).
  
    Grep-dctrl now adheres to the same exit value conventions as grep(1).
    It also supports GNU grep's -q and --silent options.
