Change Logs

* Sat Mar 10 2018
- Drop lircd-Remove-use-of-functions-killed-in-kernel-4.8.0.patch:
  the guarding zypper call was wrong (-qf vs --qf) and resulted in
  the patch never being applied. So it is obviously not used.
- Remove dependency on zypper: libzypp just gets a new dependency
  on libgpgme, which happens to result in a cycle: since the sole
  usage of zypper was to 'detect if the patch was needed' is no
  longer given, we have no feature loss.

  * The iguanair driver has been moved out of tree and is now
    maintained by Iguanaworks, Inc. See drivers/iguanair/README.
  * The irman driver has been moved out of tree. From 0.5.1 the
    libirman package contains the driver. See drivers/irman/README

    by the yard2 project. See driver/yard2/README.
  * The lirc.4 manpage (/dev/lirc* interface) is upstreamed to the
    linux kernel manpages project (#164). Old page lirc.4l still
    lingers in attic/ but is not installed.
  * Upstream selinux updated to match current lircd requirements.
  * New upstream debian packaging with which Debian users can create
    .deb packages. Ubuntu packages are also available in PPAs. See in the debian branch (#137).
  * New driver girs for the GIRS protocol, gives LIRC Arduino support.
    See new info in driver documentation.
  * New transmit-only FTDI driver with enhanced accuracy and hardware
    support. See ftdix driver documentation.

  * As shipped, lircd now uses the devinput driver and the new 'auto'

  - Add drvctl device enumeration support.
  - Integrated mode2 and irw tests of current configuration.
  - Documentation links.
  - More consistent data based on new database.
  - Multiple bugfixes.
  * Several patches to make mode2 work with all drivers(#123, partly)

    all tools.
  * Several drivers including default and devinput has enhanced
    enumeration support, usable with mode2 -l and lirc-setup.
  * devinput.lircd.conf is generated at build time to match host kernel,
    new script lirc-make-devinput shipped to re-generate it (#153)
  * A new script lircd-setup runs as a one-shot service before lircd,

    many popular LIRC applications and improved udev rules.
  * The default driver does not require root perms if the protocol
    is correct (#133).
  * Add an "auto" device to devinput driver for single-device
    usecase (#134).
  * irrecord has been taught to handle remotes without gap (#98).
  * The --uinput lircd option is deprecated, obsoleted by the
    lircd.uinput.service systemd service. See lircd-uinput(8).
  * CLI options for mode2, xmode2 and irrecord has been streamlined.
    All tools falls back to lircd defaults where it makes sense.
  * The driver API has been expanded with functions to enumerate
    devices. See configs/README and lib/driver.h.

    (also #129).
