python-apt 0.7.10 released

I have just uploaded a version of python-apt 0.7.10 to unstable ( my first upload of python-apt, all previous uploads were done by Michael Vogt).

This release is mainly a bugfix release, but also brings new features like apt.package.Version.uri and apt.package.Version.fetch_binary().I also added a Breaks: debdelta (<< 0.28~) because debdelta 0.27 is not working anymore since python-apt 0.7.9 and I expect that this problem will be fixed in 0.28, which could then use the new apt.package.Version.uri API to fetch the uris of the packages).

Here is the changelog:

python-apt (0.7.10) unstable; urgency=low

  • Build-Depend on python-debian, use it to get version number from changelog
