 libgweather (40.0-4) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Team upload
   [ Laurent Bigonville ]
   * debian/watch: Update to match the new version scheme
   [ Jeremy Bicha ]
   * debian/watch: Watch for stable releases
   [ Simon McVittie ]
   * d/ Increase various Breaks versions for transition #993934.
     We'll get a compatible set of versions more reliably if we require
     a sourceful upload for each affected package.
   * Release to unstable
 libgweather (40.0-3) experimental; urgency=medium
   * debian/control: Lower the breaks on an installable gnome-shell version.
     While libgweather 40 really breaks gnome-shell prior to 40, we can lower
     the breaks so that we can upload a fixed gnome 3.38 version in order to
     be able to upload one working with libgweather 40 without having to wait
     for mutter-8 to be out of NEW queue.
 libgweather (40.0-2) experimental; urgency=medium
   * debian/control:
     - build-depend on python3-gi and gir1.2-glib-2.0.
       They're used to generate the locations variant file.
     - Sort dependencies alphabetically
 libgweather (40.0-1) experimental; urgency=medium
   [ Simon McVittie ]
   * New upstream release (LP: #1918044)
     - Correct value of GWEATHER_PROVIDER_ALL to include OWM
     - Translation updates: be, kk, uk
     - Give better diagnostics on test failure (no functional change)
   * Drop patches that came from upstream
   [ Marco Trevisan (TreviƱo) ]
   * New upstream release (LP: #1916827, LP: #1265588):
     - This version contains a number of API and ABI changes that applications
       will need to be modified for, including:
       + An application-id as well as contact information must be provided for
         every application to use online weather services. For GApplication
         based applications, the application ID is prefilled.
       + All online weather providers are disabled by default, applications
         should enable those that it has verified it can follow the terms of
         service for. Note, for example, the requirement to subscribe to the API users mailing-list.
       + A lot of the getter functions for the location database now return
         references to objects which the application will need to handle.
         Applications that use JavaScript or Python bindings should not require
         special handling or this change.
   * debian/libgweather-3-16.install: Install files in libgweather library path.
     It contains locations data in binary form for now (that are
   * debian/libgweather-3-16.symbols: Add new symbols
   * debian: Switch to debhelper 13, and simplify rules accordingly
   * debian/control: Add breaks on rdependent packages that need to be updated.
     This version of libgweather requires some updates on its dependencies,
     even if there was no soname change (and no formal ABI break) we're
     actually breaking the ABI at runtime, so various dependencies will need
     to adapt or be rebuilt.
     In particular e-d-s, gnome-panel and gnome-applets only need to be
     rebuilt against, while gnome-shell, gnome-calendar, gnome-weather and
     wmforecast needs new versions.
     Others, didn't require any change (such as gnome-maps) or may only require
     a rebuild to avoid leaks (as g-s-d, evolution or gnome-initial-setup), but
     this update won't really break them.
   * debian/patches: Cherry-pick upstream locations and translations updates
   * debian/control: Update Standards-Version (no change required)
