+libcgi-pm-perl (4.15-1) unstable; urgency=medium
+
+  From upstream Changes, 4.15:
+
+    - This release removes the AUTOLOAD and compile optimisations from CGI.pm
+      that were introduced into CGI.pm twenty (20) years ago as a response to
+      its large size, which meant there was a significant compile time penalty.
+
+    [...]
+
+    - This essentially deprecates the -compile pragma and ->compile method. The
+      -compile pragma will no longer do anything, whereas the ->compile method
+      will raise a deprecation warning. More importantly this also REMOVES the
+      -any pragma because as per the documentation this pragma needed to be
+      "used with care or not at all" and allowing arbitrary HTML tags is almost
+      certainly a bad idea. If you are using the -any pragma and using 
arbitrary
+      tags (or have typo's in your code) your code will *BREAK*
+
+    - Although this release should be back compatible (with the exception of 
any
+      code using the -any pragma) you are encouraged to test it throughly as if
+      you are doing anything out of the ordinary with CGI.pm (i.e. have bugs
+      that may have been masked by the AUTOLOAD feature) you may see some 
issues.
+
+  From upstream Changes, 4.13:
+
+    - CGI::Pretty is now DEPRECATED and will be removed in a future release.
+      Please see GH #162 (https://github.com/leejo/CGI.pm/issues/162) for more
+      information and discussion (also GH #140 for HTML function deprecation
+      discussion: https://github.com/leejo/CGI.pm/issues/140)
