  Leap 15.2 and SLE15 SP2.
* Fri Sep 20 2019 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 1.5.17

    array to a previously written variable in HDF5 MAT file.
  * Fixed bug calculating sizes of cell/struct array with empty
    cells/fields in Mat_VarGetSize.

    v5 MAT file.
  * Fixed bug writing cell/struct array with empty cells/fields to
    HDF5 MAT file.

    cells/fields from v5 MAT file.
  * Fixed read performance of numeric array from uncompressed v5
    MAT file.
  * Fixed testsuite (if configured with the MATLAB application).
  * Updated man pages.
- Drop BuildRequires: libtool and the autoreconf run before
  configure; the patches that needed these have been long gone.
- Mat v7.3 tests fail, so turn off enable-mat73 for now.

  * Added new API function Mat_GetDir to retrieve all variable
    names of a MAT file

    variable data type differs from the desired output data type
  * Increased testsuite coverage

  hdf5 >= 1.10; patch taken from upstream git (gh#tbeu/matio#37).
- Add matio-disable-failing-hdf5-tests.patch to disable "mat73"
  tests that fail (apparently) due to bugs in hdf5 1.10
  (gh#tbeu/matio#41); patch touches autotool files, add
  BuildRequires on libtool and run "autoreconf -fi" before
