dwarves-dfsg (1.17-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (changes since 1.16):

    BTF loader:
     - Support raw BTF as available in /sys/kernel/btf/vmlinux.

     - When the sole argument passed isn't a file, take it as a class name:
     - Do not require a class name to operate without a file name.
     - Make --find_pointers_to consider unions:
     - Make --contains and --find_pointers_to honour --unions
     - Add support for finding pointers to void:
     - Make --contains and --find_pointers_to to work with base types:
     - Make --contains look for more than just unions, structs:
     - Consider unions when looking for classes containing some class:
     - Introduce --unions to consider just unions:
     - Fix -m/--nr_methods - Number of functions operating on a type pointer

     - Add section about --hex + -E to locate offsets deep into sub structs.
     - Add more information about BTF.
     - Add some examples.

  * Update to Standards-Version 4.5.0:
    - Drop get-orig-source rules target
    - Add Rules-Requires-Root: no

Binary packages built by this source

dwarves: set of advanced DWARF utilities

 This package contains tools that use the DWARF debugging information
 inserted in ELF binaries by the compiler. This information is used by
 debuggers (e.g. GDB), and other tools such as systemtap.
 Utilities in the dwarves suite include:
  - pahole: finds alignment holes in structs and classes in languages
    such as C/C++, CPU cacheline alignment. Helps repack those structures
    to achieve more cache hits.
  - codiff: a diff like tool to compare the effects changes in source
    code generate on the resulting binaries
  - pfunct: displays all sorts of information about functions, inlines, etc.
  - pdwtags: pretty-prints DWARF information
  - pglobal: lists global symbols
  - prefcnt: counts DWARF tags usage
  - syscse: system call sign extender
  - dtagnames: lists tag names
