Bug Description

Please sync libqglviewer 2.3.17-1 (universe) from Debian experimental (main)

Ubuntu is shipping a more than three-year-old version of libQGLViewer (version 2.3.4 released in September 2009).

This means that modern software fails to run or build on Ubuntu: one must download from the project homepage a recent version instead of using the official repository version.

Please update this package.

Changelog entries since current raring version 2.3.4-4.2:

libqglviewer (2.3.17-1) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Artur R. Czechowski ]

    + uses CONFIG += no_keywords so that the library can be used with Boost

    + use dpkg-buildflags
    + pass build flags to qmake

This needs a mini transition as libqglviewer-qt4-dev has 2 build dependencies and it's no longer produced by this version. Logan, can you look into that please?
