Change Logs

* Fri Mar 19 2021 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 7.2.2:
  * support for python 3 and gcc 10.

- Update to version 7.2.1:
  * Vertex position fix for taus in dipole shower events.
- Add Herwig-type-mismatch-fix.patch to fix data of incorrect type
  sent to functions, flagged by GCC 10.

* Wed Oct 11 2017
- Use more fine-grained BuildRequires on boost* libraries for
  openSUSE > 1320.
* Sat Sep 02 2017

  * An implementation of the KrkNLO method for simple processes
  * Major restructuring and cleanup of default input files
  * C++11 is now mandatory and heavily used in the code
  * Many smaller bugfixes and improvements
- Update filelist for new and dropped binaries.
- Disable for %{ix86}: no longer supported.
- Rebase Herwig-disable-repo-install.patch for update.
* Mon Feb 13 2017
- Rename from libHerWig1 to Herwig-libs as the package does not
  satisfy the SLPP guideline: there are a number of
* Wed Nov 16 2016
- Trim history lesson from description
* Tue Nov 15 2016
- Rename shared library, adding the so number from; the so numbers of the other shared libraries
  are expected to be incremented by upstream in step with this.
- Move config file to -devel pkg in keeping with shlib packaging
- Added obsoletes/provides for Herwig++ which will now be dropped
  from Factory.
* Fri Nov 11 2016
- Initial package.
- Add Herwig-disable-repo-install.patch: Disable post-install
  hooks intended to set up the Herwig repo, this doesn't work
  inside the build script because of missing LHAPDF data that
  needs to be installed by the user; the install-hook doesn't
  serve any purpose while building the rpm and users can easily
  set this up on their own.
