I am the maintainer (and upstream) of openobex.
I am going to upload openobex-1.7.1 to unstable soon but it is likely that some packages have problems following this change. I thus try to contact you so this can be discussed without too much stress :-)

BTW: I still need a sponsor to upload (also for obexftp).

I know that obex-data-server does not build with the new version but also know how to fix that (no ready patch available, though) :-)

The following upgrading instruction are available in the openobex source:
-------------------------------------- snip -----------------------------
When using an event loop that triggers on incoming data, you must call
OBEX_HandleInput() after each call to OBEX_Request() to actually send the

The function OBEX_UnicodeToAscii() and its counterpart OBEX_AsciiToUnicode()
are gone. Please use the more complete functionality from your toolkit.

If you use one of the functions InOBEX_ServerRegister() and
InOBEX_TransportConnect(), please change to TcpOBEX_ServerRegister() and

The functions OBEX_GetCustomData() and OBEX_SetCustomData() will really only
work with OBEX_TRANS_CUSTOM. Also, obex_t and obex_object_t changed the
declared type. If you pass it around, make sure to use them as pointer.

To use the bluetooth function, include the bluetooth headers of your system
before including openobex/obex.h or define bt_addr_t to the proper type.

The function OBEX_FindInterfaces is replaced by the functions
OBEX_EnumerateInterfaces() and OBEX_GetInterfaceByIndex().
-------------------------------------- snip -----------------------------

Additionally, the API changed a bit, so the -dev package will be renamed from libopenobex1-dev to libopenobex2-dev. Most rdeps should not be affected, though. Strange enough, libkbluetooth0 depends libopenobex1 but it does not seem to build-depend on it (or build-rdeps from devscripts does not work right).

If you need patches for the changes above, I can provide them but I cannot (always) test them...
