 flex (2.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream version. Notable changes
     + a segfalt involving yyrestart(NULL) has been fixed
     + flex should now handle quoting when mixed with m4 processing correctly
     + flex handles `[[' and `]]' correctly
     + flex no longer generates non-ANSI code
     + more compilation warnings were squashed in generated scanners
     + prevented a buffer overflow that could occur when input buffers were
       the exact wrong size
     + several bug fixes resolved problems introduced in recent flex
       versions regarding processing of comments, literals and various
       quoting scenarios.
     +  If the path to m4 was sufficiently long, a buffer overflow could
        occur. This has been resolved. The fix also removes dependence on
        the constant PATH_MAX.
     + Some minor performance enhancements.
     +  We honor user defined yy_* macros again. We are also more careful
        to not leak macro definitions into header files.
     + A number of portability fixes were introduced so building flex is
       more reliable on more platforms. Additionally, outdated function
       calls were removed.
     + When building the flex executable itself, %# comments from
       flex.skl are removed when generating the C source code array. This
       reduces the size of flex.
     + Flex can be cross compiled.
   * Bug fix: "comparison between signed and unsigned integer expressions",
     thanks to Frank Heckenbach. This should be fixed now. (Closes: #835542).
   * Bug fix: "Please update homepage in package description", thanks to
     Tim Ruehsen (Closes: #851675).
   * Bug fix: "Should Suggest: flex-doc", thanks to Yuri D&#39;Elia
     (Closes: #856956).
   * Stole some commits from 2.6.5 to fix FTBS issues in 2.6.4 release.
