Introduction

About every 2 years Debian introduces a new release.

At the time I'm writing this Debian Buster is on it's way from Full Freeze to GA.

The following notes shall provide the order in which FancyLibs shall be adapted and released for a new Debian release or maybe an Ubuntu release.

Adapting FancyLibs to new Debian Release

The steps per sub project are the same as described for "HelloWorld projects* in Adapting PBA to new Debian Release, with -o unix (before MinGW adaption) or -o "arch|unix|7" after MinGW adaption.

FancyLibs subproject rebuild order phase 1

The recommended order for phase 1 (before MinGW adaptions) is:

Project (subdir)Archs (-o parameter)Remarks generalStatus & Remarks stretch/busterVersion with Buster
fancylogarch|8
OK.
in pba-rpmrelease, call to rpmsign can be reduced to:
rpmsign --addsign -v --key-id 9...7 -D "%__gpg /usr/bin/gpg" ../foobar-1.2.3-1.src.rpm
1.0.3-5
cute-headersarch|8Data only, could be done anytimeOK1.6.1-9
fancylibsarch
OK. libstdc++-8-dev3.7.3-1
fancydb-Unix onlyOK0.6.5-7
fancydrawingarch
OK0.6.2-3
fancygpsdclientunix
OK0.4.3-5
fancyhttpdarch
OK0.8.0-2
fancylogdunix
OK0.1.0-3
fancylogview.Debian unix & amd64 onlyHalf OK: Does not build for armhf, maybe never did, libqt4-dev seems incomplete for arm0.3.0.5
fancypkcs11unixDebian unix & amd64 onlyHalf OK: Does not build for armhf, maybe never did0.4.1-1
fancypcscunixDebian unix & amd64 onlyHalf OK: Does not build for armhf, maybe never did0.2.5-2
fancymodbusunix
OK
Required minor adaption, with libmodbus-dev going from 3.0.6 to 3.1.4
0.2.4-3
fancysaxarch
OK0.6.1-7
fancyqt4arch
OK0.9.3-3
fancyqt4widgetsarch
OK0.5.2-2
fancysaneunix
OK, but libsane-dbg not available for buster. Reduced that to suggestion0.3.2-5
fancyqmiunixDebian unix & amd64 onlyHalf OK: Does not build for armhf, maybe never did0.2.1-5
fancyssl-toolsunix
OK?0.4.0-5

Tests with released Buster on 2019-08-02 showed that all unix builds work for amd64, most work for armhf.

MinGW-Pkg rebuilds

Stretch came with Mingw 7, Buster comes with Mingw 8, so we should rebuild that carefully, pulling up versions of libraries.

Order based on mingw 6 rebuild order
