GPL-2.0-or-later OR LGPL-3.0-or-later


* Fri Feb 25 2022 Tony Jones <>
  - Add support for zstd, needed to inspect kernel modules (bsc#1196510)
* Thu Nov 11 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to version 0.185:
    debuginfod-client: Default $DEBUGINFOD_URLS is computed from drop-in files
      etc/debuginfod*.urls rather than hardcoded into the
      /etc/profile.d/debuginfod* scripts.
      for skipping large/slow transfers.
      Add $DEBUGINFOD_RETRY for retrying aborted lookups.
    debuginfod: Supply extra HTTP response headers, describing archive/file
      names that satisfy the requested buildid content.
      Support -d :memory: option for in-memory databases.
      Protect against loops in federated server configurations.
      Add -r option to use -I/-X regexes for grooming stale files.
      Protect against wasted CPU from duplicate concurrent requests.
      Limit the duration of groom ops roughly to rescan (-t) times.
      Add --passive mode for serving from read-only database.
      Several other performance improvements & prometheus metrics.
    libdw: Support for the NVIDIA Cuda line map extensions.
      DW_LNE_NVIDIA_inlined_call and DW_LNE_NVIDIA_set_function_name
      are defined in dwarf.h. New functions dwarf_linecontext and
  - Remove tests-Allow-an-extra-pthread_kill-frame-in-backtrace.patch
    and disable-run-readelf-self-test.patch.
  - Remove -flto-partition=none -Wno-error=stack-usage= from _lto_flags
* Tue Oct 05 2021 Stephan Kulow <>
  - Enhance license fields: all the libraries actually have a different
    license to the tools. While the tools are GPL-3.0-or-later, the
    libraries are (LGPL-3.0-or-later OR GPL-2.0-or-later)
    SLE bug (for tracking the above) bsc#1191310
* Thu Aug 05 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Add tests-Allow-an-extra-pthread_kill-frame-in-backtrace.patch
    in order to fix boo#1189083.
* Mon May 24 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to version 0.185:
    debuginfod-client: Simplify curl handle reuse so downloads which
      return an error are retried.
    elfcompress: Always exit with code 0 when the operation succeeds (even
      when nothing was done). On error the exit code is now always 1.
* Mon May 10 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to version 0.184:
    debuginfod: Use libarchive's bsdtar as the .deb-family file unpacker.
    debuginfod-client: Client caches negative results. If a query for a
      file failed with 404, an empty 000 permission
      file is created in the cache. This will prevent
      requesting the same file for the next 10 minutes.
      Client objects now carry long-lived curl handles
      for outgoing connections.  This makes it more
      efficient for multiple sequential queries, because
      the TCP connections and/or TLS state info are kept
      around awhile, avoiding O(100ms) setup latencies.
    libdw: handle DW_FORM_indirect when reading attributes
    translations: Update Polish translation.
* Wed Mar 17 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Add disable-run-readelf-self-test.patch in order to disable
    a failing test-case with GCC 11 (PR27367).

      New increased webapi concurrency while grooming.
    debuginfod-client: DEBUGINFOD_SONAME macro added to debuginfod.h which
      can be used to dlopen the library.
      New function debuginfod_set_verbose_fd and
      DEBUGINFOD_VERBOSE environment variable.
    config: and profile.csh won't export DEBUGINFOD_URLS unless
      configured --enable-debuginfod-urls[=URLS]

      SHF_COMPRESSED sections.
    libdebuginfod: configure now takes --enable-libdebuginfod=dummy or
    - -disable-libdebuginfod for bootstrapping.
      DEBUGINFOD_URLS now accepts "scheme-free" urls
      (guessing at what the user meant, either http:// or file://)
    readelf, elflint: Handle aarch64 bti, pac bits in dynamic table and gnu
      property notes.
    libdw, readelf: Recognize DW_CFA_AARCH64_negate_ra_state. Allows unwinding

* Mon Mar 30 2020 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to version 0.179:

* Sun Jun 10 2018
  - disable-tests-with-ptrace.patch: Rediff
* Mon Jun 04 2018
  - Update to version 0.171
    DWARF5 and split dwarf, including GNU DebugFission, are supported now.
    Data can be read from the new DWARF sections .debug_addr, .debug_line_str,
    .debug_loclists, .debug_str_offsets and .debug_rnglists.  Plus the new
    DWARF5 and GNU DebugFission encodings of the existing .debug sections.
    Also in split DWARF .dwo (DWARF object) files.  This support is mostly
    handled by existing functions (dwarf_getlocation*, dwarf_getsrclines,
    dwarf_ranges, dwarf_form*, etc.) now returning the data from the new
    sections and data formats.  But some new functions have been added
    to more easily get information about skeleton and split compile units
    (dwarf_get_units and dwarf_cu_info), handle new attribute data
    (dwarf_getabbrevattr_data) and to keep references to Dwarf_Dies
    that might come from different sections or files (dwarf_die_addr_die).
    Not yet supported are .dwp (Dwarf Package) and .sup (Dwarf Supplementary)
    files, the .debug_names index, the .debug_cu_index and .debug_tu_index
    sections. Only a single .debug_info (and .debug_types) section are
    currently handled.
    readelf: Handle all new DWARF5 sections.
    - -debug-dump=info+ will show split unit DIEs when found.
    - -dwarf-skeleton can be used when inspecting a .dwo file.
      Recognizes GNU locviews with --debug-dump=loc.
    libdw: New functions dwarf_die_addr_die, dwarf_get_units,
      dwarf_getabbrevattr_data and dwarf_cu_info.
      libdw will now try to resolve the alt file on first use of
      an alt attribute FORM when not set yet with dwarf_set_alt.
      dwarf_aggregate_size() now works with multi-dimensional arrays.
    libdwfl: Use process_vm_readv when available instead of ptrace.
    backends: Add a RISC-V backend.
    There were various improvements to build on Windows.
    The sha1 and md5 implementations have been removed, they weren't used.
