+debhelper (3.4.4) unstable; urgency=low
+ * Introduced the debian/compat file. This is the new, preferred way to say
+ what debhelper compatability level your package uses. It has the big
+ advantage of being available to debhelper when you run it at the command
+ line, as well as in debian/rules.
+ * A new v4 feature: dh_installinit, in v4 mode, will use invoke-rc.d.
+ This is in v4 for testing, but I may well roll it back into v3 (and
+ earlier) once woody is released and I don't have to worry about breaking
+ things (and, presumably, once invoke-rc.d enters policy).
+ * Some debhelper commands will now build up a new substvars variable,
+ ${misc:Depends}, based on things they know your package needs to depend
+ on. For example, dh_installinit in v4 mode adds sysvinit (>= 2.80-1) to
+ that dep list, and dh_installxfonts adds a dep on xutils. This variable
+ should make it easier to keep track of what your package needs to depends
+ on, supplimenting the ${shlibs:Depends} and ${perl:Depends} substvars.
+ Hmm, this appears to be based loosely on an idea by Masato Taruishi
+ <>, filtered through a long period of mulling it over.
+ Closes: #76352
+ * Use the addsubstvar function I wrote for the above in dh_perl too.
