- Update to version 30
  * Bug fixes: 15 bugs that users have reported on the ngspice bug
    tracker have been fixed. Other bugs and some memory leaks have
    been removed as well.
  * New features: The VDMOS model has been overhauled and updated.
    A new variable 'controlswait' allows shifting the command
    sequence in shared ngspice to after the simulation.
  * Documentation: The manual making procedure has been setup anew.
    A html manual may be generated in addition to the pdf version.
- Update to version 29
  * Bug fixes: Small bugs fixed, lots of memory leaks removed.
  * New features: Enhanced compatibility modes with PSPICE (.include
    files or the complete netlist), LTSPICE compatibility started,
    not yet complete. New 'sidiode' simple diode model, new command
    'setseed', new internal variables 'no_auto_gnd' and 'inputdir'.
    Environmental variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is supported.
  * Documentation: Updated pdf manual and other documentation.
- Update to version 28
  * License: All licenses involved are DFSG compatible.
  * Bug fixes: Small bugs fixed, memory leaks removed, code
    reorganized to improve its readability and safety.
  * New features: new VDMOS power MOS model, ngspice reads device
    libs with PSPICE syntax, old apps like ngnutmeg are made only
    upon user reqest, new commands 'mc_source' and 'alterparam',
    instance parameters may be added to the .model line, new
    variable 'sim_status', ngspice shared library supports XSPICE
    digital event data over its interface, pkg-config added .
  * Documentation: Updated pdf manual and other documentation.

* Sun May 06 2018
- Removed shared library header from non-shared devel package
* Tue Dec 05 2017
- Build shared library version of ngspice using the multibuild
  Building the shared library version of ngspice requires a separate
  build which doesn't build the binaries and doesn't allow to build
  with the X Window System UI.
  Also it requires the package to be split in several sub-packages:
  * a package containing most of the ngspice binaries.
  * a package containing the shared library and a development
    package for applications using the ngspice API.
  * a code model package for Xspice and a development package
    for code models.
  * a scripts package
- Added -fpie and -pie to CFLAGS to ensure position independent
