2015-04-23 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.5-2
- Work around problems with old GeoIP-data package in CentOS 5 Extras
repo ( by requiring
GeoIP-GeoLite-data rather than the virtual GeoIP-data for EL-5 builds only
2015-03-02 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.5-1
- Update to 1.6.5
- Fixed a segmentation fault in geoiplookup when the utility was passed an
invalid database (#1180874)
- Additional validation was added for the size used in the creation of the
index cache (#832913)
- Changed the code to only look up country codes by using functions that
ensure that we do not try to look past the end of an array (GitHub #53)
2015-02-20 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.4-4
- Databases now unbundled to the GeoIP-GeoLite-data package
- Drop long-unused perl helper scripts
- Add explicit pkgconfig dependency for EL-5 build
- Drop timestamp hack for configure, no longer needed
2015-02-10 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.4-3
- Sub-package the data; going forward, this would be better as a separate
package, since it has separate upstream releases than the library
2015-02-06 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.6.4-2
- Only require geoipupdate prior to F-22, for back-compatibility
- Use %license where possible
- GeoIP-devel provides geoip-devel as well as obsoleting it
- Update bundled databases
2015-01-29 - Philip Prindeville <> - 1.6.4-1
- Require geoipupdate per Paul
2015-01-20 - Philip Prindeville <> - 1.6.4-0
- Version bump to 1.6.4 per bz #1158667 (okay, that bug was for 1.6.3)
- Remove geoipupdate as it will be moving into its own package
2014-08-15 - Fedora Release Engineering <> - 1.5.1-6
- Rebuilt for
2014-06-06 - Fedora Release Engineering <> - 1.5.1-5
- Rebuilt for
2014-02-25 - Paul Howarth <> - 1.5.1-4
