+flex (2.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
+ * New upstream version. Notable changes
+ + a segfalt involving yyrestart(NULL) has been fixed
+ + flex should now handle quoting when mixed with m4 processing correctly
+ + flex handles `[[' and `]]' correctly
+ + flex no longer generates non-ANSI code
+ + more compilation warnings were squashed in generated scanners
+ + prevented a buffer overflow that could occur when input buffers were
+ the exact wrong size
+ + several bug fixes resolved problems introduced in recent flex
+ versions regarding processing of comments, literals and various
+ quoting scenarios.
+ + If the path to m4 was sufficiently long, a buffer overflow could
+ occur. This has been resolved. The fix also removes dependence on
+ the constant PATH_MAX.
+ + Some minor performance enhancements.
+ + We honor user defined yy_* macros again. We are also more careful
+ to not leak macro definitions into header files.
+ + A number of portability fixes were introduced so building flex is
+ more reliable on more platforms. Additionally, outdated function
+ calls were removed.
+ + When building the flex executable itself, %# comments from
+ flex.skl are removed when generating the C source code array. This
+ reduces the size of flex.
+ + Flex can be cross compiled.
+ * Bug fix: "comparison between signed and unsigned integer expressions",
+ thanks to Frank Heckenbach. This should be fixed now. (Closes: #835542).
+ * Bug fix: "Please update homepage in package description", thanks to
+ Tim Ruehsen (Closes: #851675).
+ * Bug fix: "Should Suggest: flex-doc", thanks to Yuri D'Elia
+ (Closes: #856956).
+ * Stole some commits from 2.6.5 to fix FTBS issues in 2.6.4 release.
