 xsoldier (1:1.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * new maintainer
   * new upstream release, with new upstream developer (closes: #142548)
   * new upstream release fixed the following bugs:
     - crashing into boss 6 did not destroy the player's ship after the
       boss teleported (closes: #142543)
     - the background of the title scrolled at a wrong speed when you quited
       when "stage cleared" message was displayed (closes: #142544)
     - joystick patch available at the original author's webpage was not
       applied (closes: #142545)
     - damage calculation of weapon 3 was wrong (closes: #142546)
     - EnemyLaserAct() sometimes fell off without calling return, causing
       suicide of boss enemies (closes: #142550)
   * packaging SDL version on RFP (closes: #144259)
   * Splitting a package is a last resort, so let's package only SDL version
     and see how users complain.  Once a package is split, merging it is
     much harder than splitting.  If you don't want to install SDL, grab
     the source code and compile the raw X version by yourself.
   * Moving files to follow the FHS:
     - image data are now in /usr/share, not in /usr/lib (closes: #142547)
     - the score file is now in /var/games/xsoldier/, not in /var/lib/games
   * The default score file is in /usr/share, not in /var (closes: #142549)
   * If you are upgrading from 1:0.96-14 or older, I don't save the old
     score file because:
     - there is no easy way to do so (since the location of the score file
       is changed, there is no secure temporal directory for it during
       an upgrade)
     - the score file is not compatible in a gamer's view (it uses the same
       format but the score was inflated)
   * added doc-base support
   * debian/copyright: reflected the new upstream
   * debian/override: removed because lintian knows about setgid games
   * debian/README.Debian: new file, explaining score file handling
