Description mastaiza 2017-11-06 17:29:33 UTC
update to 2.44

Comment 1 "FeRD" (Frank Dana) 2018-03-29 12:34:07 UTC
According to /usr/share/doc/frotz/ChangeLog the current 2.43 version was "released on Monday October 28, 2002". Impressive!

Meanwhile, the 2.44 release (May 20, 2015) builds with the same .spec file as 2.43, the only update required is to refresh the Fedora patch files so they apply on the newer sources.

It also contains significant fixes applied over the intervening 12.5 years. Among many improvements, frotz-2.44 is better able to recognize valid games in more ancient z-machine format, files which the currently-disting frotz-2.43 refuses to load. (Those same files load without issue in gargoyle and other interpreters.)

Spec changes necessary to successfully build 2.44 were confined to metadata:

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
