r501: * Began work on v4 support (and thus the large version number jump), and it
is only for the very brave right now since I will unhesitatingly break compatability in v4 mode as I'm developing it. Currently, updating to v4 mode will only make dh_makeshlibs -V generate shared library deps that omit the debian part of the version number. The reasoning behind this change is that the debian revision should not typically break binary compatability, that existing use of -V is causing too tight versioned deps, and that if you do need to include the debian revision for some reason, you can always write it out by hand. Closes: #101497 * dh_testversion is deprecated -- use build deps instead. A warning message is now output when it runs. Currently used by: 381 packages. * dh_installxaw is deprecated -- xaw-wrappers in no longer in the distribution. A warning message is now output when it runs. Currently used by: 3 packages (bugs filed). * Added referneces to menufile in dh_installmenu man page. Closes: #127978 (dh_make is not a part of debhelper, if you want it changed, file a bug on dh-make.)
