Yes.

      Code:
 alsa-base (1.0.25+1) unstable; urgency=low
 .
   [ Elimar Riesebieter ]
   * udev-related code removed from alsa-base.postinst (closes: #620786)
 .
   [ Jordi Mallach ]
   * Depend on kmod, not module-init-tools (thanks, Markus Waldeck).
   * Rename source package, make it 3.0 (native).
   * Drop alsa-source and all related packaging for alsa-modules. It was
     painful to maintain, didn't make the kernel team happy at all and was
     a general mess. The recommended way of getting new drivers is to look
     for a kernel backport (closes: #627152, 622652 —RC—, and also
     closes: #228070, #481849, #570618, #584336, #588385, #606046, #612123
     closes: #653542)
   * Drop all patches, all applied to alsa-driver.
   * Do not install ALSA driver docs in alsa-base.
   * Rewrite rules in dh.
   * Bump to debhelper 9.
   * Refresh debconf po files to get rid of alsa-source msgids.
   * Drop watch file, we don't have an upstream tarball anymore.
   * Drop program-wrapper, it was useful for woody upgrades.
   * Add dependency on procps (closes: #634038).
   * Never call snddevices, udev should create devices for us
     (closes: #526648). Also, remove APM stuff, which is long obsolete.
   * Drop linux-sound-base: OSS was removed from the kernel pre-squeeze.
     (closes: #662038). Remove all module list generation machinery,
     it's now obsolete.
   * Removing linux-sound-base also closes: #376241, #558408 the hard way.
   * Drop Build-Depends on po-debconf.
   * Make alsa-base Break: linux-sound-base, to get it uninstalled on
     upgrades. l-s-b postrm should take care of the cleanups.
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.
   * Drop d/source/options, use the standard compression.
   * Move d/alsa-base.init to just d/alsa, otherwise debhelper thinks this
     is a init script.
   * Move old Debian changelog entries back to main changelog.

Thanks!
slh, how can I obtain the info with the changes between package versions - like the one you provided above?

For example, I have libcairo2 on hold and want to see whether new version(s) of it and/or xorg are supposed to fix the GTK apps rendering bug with nouveau - before actually upgading just to have to downgrade it again if it does not work.

For example using packages.debian.org → http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/p ... /changelog

Or, once you've downloaded the updated package, you can use
      Code:
apt-listchanges 'path_to_new_package'

like
      Code:
apt-listchanges /var/cache/apt/archives/alsa-base_1.0.25+2_all.deb
to get the same information.

Obviously, first install apt-listchanges if you don't have it installed and check it's man page for some other options; for example "-a" is useful if you want to see changes beyond just the currently installed version.

Also, apt-listchanges can be configured as an APT plugin and then it will show you changes of the packages to be updated automatically during each upgrade. I'm not sure anymore what is the default configuration but you can run
      Code:
dpkg-reconfigure apt-listchanges
to set it up as you wish.

There's also the
      Code:
aptitude changelog alsa-base

way, however, if it would only give me the output quicker... Wink
