Fedora Update Notification
2009-02-06 04:16:47

Name        : Miro
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 1.2.7
Release     : 4.fc9
URL         :
Summary     : Miro - Internet TV Player
Description :
Miro is a free application that turns your computer into an
internet TV video player. This release is still a beta version, which means
that there are some bugs, but we're moving quickly to fix them and will be
releasing bug fixes on a regular basis.

Update Information:

Update to the new upstream Firefox 3.0.6 / XULRunner fixing multiple
security issues:
vulnerabilities/firefox30.html#firefox3.0.6    This update also contains new
builds of all applications depending on Gecko libraries, built against the new
version.    Note: after the updated packages are installed, Firefox must be
restarted for the update to take effect.

* Wed Feb  4 2009 Christopher Aillon  - 1.2.7-4
- Rebuild against newer gecko
* Wed Dec 17 2008 Christopher Aillon  - 1.2.7-3
- Rebuild against newer gecko
* Wed Nov 12 2008 Christopher Aillon  - 1.2.7-2
- Rebuild against newer gecko
* Sun Sep 28 2008 Alex Lancaster  - 1.2.7-1
- Update to 1.2.7
- Rebuild against gecko-libs (#464205)
* Fri Aug 22 2008 Michel Alexandre Salim  - 1.2.6-3
- Do not create backup files when patching; the backup files get re-added during the build process
* Fri Aug 22 2008 Michel Salim  - 1.2.6-2
- Unapply boost patch; boost-1.36 has been backed out for F10
* Fri Aug 22 2008 Michel Salim  - 1.2.6-1
- Update to 1.2.6
- Patch for boost API change

- Rebuild for new boost (fixes broken deps).
* Sat Jul 19 2008 Alex Lancaster  - 1.2.4-3
- Rebuild for xulrunner-
- Unfortunately we probably need to make this an exact match because
  Miro uses the unstable API, so a rebuild may need to be done on every
  package update to be sure that it will work with new xulrunner updates
* Wed Jun 18 2008 Alex Lancaster  - 1.2.4-2
- Rebuild for xulrunner-1.9 final.
* Sun Jun 15 2008 Alex Lancaster  - 1.2.4-1
- Update to latest upstream (1.2.4)
