=== debhelper compat level 12 is open for beta testing ===

The debhelper compat level 12 is expected to become stable in Debian buster and open for beta testing as of debhelper (>= 11.4~). If you would like to help, please consider taking debhelper compat 12 for a spin by:

 * Reviewing [[https://manpages.debian.org/unstable/debhelper/debhelper.7.en.html#COMPATIBILITY_LEVELS|debhelper(7)]] for information on the changes to compat level 12.
 * Bumping the Build-Depends on debhelper to debhelper (>= 11.4~) and set debian/compat to 12.
 * Apply necessary changes (if any)
 * Building your package and debdiff'ing the binaries with the previous version/build.

If you run into issues, awkward behaviour or improvements in general, please contact the debhelper maintainers e.g. by filing a bug against the debhelper package.

Note: The new-style "debhelper-compat (= 12)" relation '''cannot''' be used for the beta test; that is reserved for the stable version of compat 12.

=== New uscan features ===

devscripts 2.18.5 has been released and brings some [[https://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/2467f981-81f1-a4bb-3fc4-49262cf39d7b@debian.org|new uscan features for developers]]:

 * in git mode, uscan is now able to verify signed tags
 * a "searchmode=plain" line option can be used to parse the full content of a web page instead of searching only {{{<a href*>}}} tags, useful for JSON contents
 * new "auto" value for dversionmangle to replace the common {{{dversionmangle=~s/[\+~](debian|dfsg|ds|deb)(\.)?(\d+)?$//}}}

'''NB''': While making these changes uscan underwent a huge refactor, so
please file any bug(s) you may find in this new version, and we will fix
them for the next release.
