less (481-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Reconcile multiple postinst scripts so that less registers a pager
    alternative again (closes: #812252).

less (481-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream
    Closes: #804025
  * These are the differences between version 458 and version 481:
    - Don't overwrite history file; just append to it. This behaves
      better when multiple sessions are running less simultaneously and
      using the same history file.
    - New command ESC-G goes to end of currently buffered data in a pipe.
    - Disable history feature when compiled with LESSHISTFILE set to "-".
    - In more-compatible mode, make the -p option apply to every file
      opened, not just the first one.
    - In more-compatible mode, change the -e option to work like -E,
      not -EF.
    - Treat multiple CRs before LF are like one CR (all the CRs are
      hidden).
    - Allow "extra" string in lesskey file to append to a multi-char
      command (like a search pattern), without executing the command.
    - Ignore -u/-U setting while viewing help file, so that underline
      and bold chars are displayed correctly.
    - Improve detection of "binary" files in UTF-8 mode.
    - Fix bug with ++ commands.
    - Fix bug where prompt was sometimes not displayed with +G.
    - Fix possible memory corruption
    - Fix bugs and improve performance in ampersand filtering.
    - Allow %% escape sequence in LESSOPEN variable.
    - Automate construction of Unicode tables from Unicode database.
  * debian/control: Standards-Version: 3.9.6

  * Closes: Bug#79494: Lesspipe mishandles files with spaces, etc.
    I removed the single quotes around %s in the LESSOPEN and LESSCLOSE
    environment variables, although is re-actives an old bug (#25706). I still
    thinks it's sensible, because with the quotes in place, you cannot view
    any files with need-to-escape characters in their names, now you cannot
    view only files with '#' as the first character, i.e. you can view them
    when you write the path ahead (e.g. 'less ./#file').
    Plus, I added a note to lesspipe that should lead people who fell into this
    trap door to the right direction.

	* mainstream update less 321.
	* modified debian.control & debian.rules for version, architecture
	* make install prefix instead of debian.rules specific install

1.  Added debian.* files

The following changes are from Bill Mitchell:
Changes for less-290-8
	elf package
	* rebuilt using ncurses shared lib
	* changed ncurses-runtime dependency to ncurses3.0

Changes for less-290-7
	elf package
	* added bugfix in #ifdef LINUX code in ch.c

Changes for less-290-6
	elf package
	* rebuilt for elf

Changes for less-290-5
	aout package
	* use alternative patch from Raul Miller to handle /proc files

Changes for less-290-4
	aout package
	* hacked filename.c with a workaround for a kernel bug
	  for files in /proc,
	      stat(filename) returns st_size set to 0
	      lseek(fd, (off_t) 0, 2) returns 0
	  this hack determines filesize by reading thru the file byte by byte
	  this doesn't address lseeek() being broken, and less(1) will
	  probably still misbehave if any /proc files are big enough
	  to make it want to use lseek()

Changes for less-290-3

1.  Added #ifdef DEBIAN block in screen.c to abort on unknown
    terminal types instead of attempting to continue (due to
    an apparent libtermcap.a bug which segfaults on tgetflag("hc")
    for unknown terminal types).

2.  Added -DDEBAIN to cflags in debian.rules.

3.  Added build as a dependency to binary: target in debian.rules.

4.  Modified ./configure invocation handling in debian.rules.

Changes for less-290-2

1.  Cleaned up description and extended description on debian.control.
