News for Debian developers

This wiki page collects small news that all developers should know but that are not worth a dedicated mail to debian-devel-announce. Follow the template "Example of news" and add your news below it. See /Help for more information on how to write entries.

If you are able to post to debian-devel-announce (all Debian members can) and there are 5 or more items below, you might want to send out the news. To send out a new issue, you can use this helper script to generate the email version of this page. After generating the mail, proof-read it, correct any spelling, formatting or grammatical errors and send out the mail. Once the mail is sent and archived, please delete the items that were sent, add a link to the archived mail in the Previous news section and mention the mail in ProjectNews.

Example of news

This is a sample news. Copy it and edit the title, content and signature... You can use links like this. Put real news below this sample.

-- Your Name


If your package absolutely requires a non-baseline CPU extension such as SSE2 or NEON (ie, it will crash or fail, instead of falling back to an unoptimized variant), and it's infeasible for you to fix it, please make it depend on ${ISA}-support on the architectures in question. Currently defined extensions are:

  • sse2-support: any-i386
  • sse3-support: any-i386 any-amd64
  • sse4.2-support: any-i386 any-amd64
  • neon-support: armhf
  • altivec-support: powerpc

More such extensions can be added on request.

Note that such a dependency must be arch-qualified (unless your package is already restricted to that architecture only): 「Depends: neon-support [armhf]」
