38. By Chris Glass on 2013-10-16

* New upstream version (LP: #1190510)
 - New annotations exchange mechanism allows clients to send any key-value
   data to the landscape server (LP: #1123932)
 - Network devices now report their maximum theoretical speeds, and duplex
   status to landscape-server (LP: #1126330, LP: #1130733)
 - Landscape.client is now HA aware when HA is implemented using juju
   charms (LP: #1122508)
 - The landscape client will now trigger a reboot if server sends a
   reboot-required message. (LP: #1133005)
 - Big AMP code cleanup and refactoring in order to improve testing, improve
   performance and ease future maintainability (LP: #1165047, LP: #1169102,
   LP: #1170669)
 - Added logic to detect cloned (virtual) computers (LP: #1161856)
 - The landscape-client and landscape-common packages do not use or depend
   on dbus code anymore, and the dependencies to python-gi and gudev are
   dropped. The hardware info plugin now looks at /proc instead of querying
   DBus (LP: #1175553, LP: #1180691)
 - The ceph manager plugin is now a monitor plugin and thus does not require
   root privileges anymore. (LP: #1186973)
 - The detection logic for virtual machine was changed to account for the
   different semantics between Openstack Folsom and Grizzly, and was
   expanded to detect more hypervisors (LP: #1191843)
 - Removed legacy upgrader code from postinst since support for it was
   dropped.
 - The /etc/dbus-1/system.d/landscape.conf file was moved from the
   landscape-common package to the landscape-client-uii as part of
   LP: #1175553, LP: #1180691. No "Breaks" rule was added since the
   landscape-client-ui package requires the exact same version of
   landscape-common, which avoids the case outlined in
   http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/footnotes.html#f53 . The Replaces
   rule of landscape-client was updated accordingly.
* Removed the hardwareinfo patch since the changes were merged upstream
* Changed dh_clean -K to dh_prep (dh_clean -K is deprecated)
* Removed the packages arguments to dh_installman since all packages have
  manpages now.
* While the debconf config file still has registration_password as a
  variable, the newest code expects a registration_key. Made the necessary
  changes for that to work.

Added fix for lshw storm when the client was talking to an old
Landscape server which was then upgraded (LP: #1053057).

36. By Andreas Hasenack on 2012-06-19

* New upstream release 12.05 (r561 in trunk) (LP: #1004678).
* Make all subpackages that depend on each other require the exact same
  version, instead of >= $version.
* Added python-gi to client depends starting natty.
* Make change-packages also handle package holds (LP: #972489).
* Fix typo in glade file (LP: #983096).
* Tidy up apt facade (LP: #985493).
* Remove SmartFacade and its tests, no longer used (LP: #996269).
* Remove check for apt version, since we won't release this for
  Hardy where that check matters (LP: #996837).
* Remove methods that were smart specific. We no longer use smart
  (LP: #996841).
* Remove smart-update helper binary. We no longer use smart
  (LP: #997408).
* Remove test-mixins that were useful only during the apt-to-smart
  code migration. Now with smart gone, they are no longer necessary
  (LP: #997760).
* Build the packages from precise onward, not just precise.
* Assorted packaging fixes:
  - Switched to format 3.0 (quilt).
  - Added source lintian overrides, with comments.
  - Updated debian/rules:
    - Added build-arch and build-indep dummy target.
    - Build the GUI packages from precise onwards, and not just on precise.
    - Re-enable dh_lintian.
    - Strip the binaries (dh_strip), and also call dh_shlibdeps for the
      automatic shlibs dependency.
    - Added python-gi from natty onwards.
  - Used __Choices instead of _Choices in landscape-common.templates, it's
    better for translators.
  - Updated standard version to 3.8.2, the version from Lucid (oldest one
    we support)
  - Added shlibs depends.
  - Dropped deprecated ${Source-Version} and replaced it with
    ${binary:Version}
  - Require exact version of the sibling package instead of >=.

Tracking bug: LP: #978884

[ David Britton ]
* Warn on unicode entry into settings UI (LP: #956612).
* Sanitise hostname field in settings UI (LP: #954507).
* Make it clear that the Landscape service is commercial (LP: #965850)
* Further internationalize the settings UI (LP: #962899)
* Depend on python-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets instead of python-aptdaemon and
  replace dependency on python-gobject by python-gi (LP: #961894)
* Add i18n to the landscape-client-ui-install script. (LP: #961891)

[ Andreas Hasenack ]
* Fix default landscape hostname in glib schema.
* dpkg test improvements to fix intermittent failures.
* If ssl_public_key is supplied, use it also when fetching script
  attachments. This fixes the case of using script execution with
  attachments when the Landscape server is using a custom CA,
  most common in LDS deployments. (LP: #959846)
* Make sure we have a PATH variable set before doing package
  activities, and also set it in the initscript for good measure. If
  the client was configured and restarted by the new UI configuration
  tool, PATH wasn't set, triggering an error in dpkg. (LP: #961190)
* Make landscape-client-ui depend on landscape-client-ui-install, so
  that we get an entry in the system settings if just
  landscape-client-ui is installed. The actual entry comes from
  landscape-client-ui-install.
* Optimization: when adding binaries, don't reload every repo, only the one
  containing the binaries. (LP: #954822)
* Handle the case where the user clicks twice inadvertently on the
  Landscape icon in system settings and don't start a second copy of
  itself. (LP: #960211)
* Change package management features to use APT instead of Smart (LP: #856244,
  #861707, #859615, #861345, #863239, #863259, #865270, #865272, #865285,
  #865273, #871641, #865299, #873196, #873939, #876493, #881973, #882438,
  #866014, #881998, #884142, #884151, #884131, #887037, #886208, #887578,
  #887947, #889067, #889069, #889087, #889099, #865303, #889113, #890605,
  #890606, #890609, #897416, #891855, #898681, #898683, #897656, #898542,
  #862212, #903202, #914734, #914735, #914737, #916301, #915280, #914742,
  #918925, #918175, #919179, #921664, #921699, #922582, #922511, #921712,
  #928750, #932136, #928941, #937411, #937567, #925543, #947803, #952973,
  #948142, #953136, #953906, #956590).
* Add a GTK interface to configure the client (LP: #911279, #911666, #912163,
  #911665, #916300, #931937, #931937, #943622, #945025, #911279, #944652,
  #948464, #948416, #949158, #911671, #950864, #949208, #949147, #953070,
  #953292, #953463, #953034, #949200, #953026, #954499, #954516, #954285,
  #953065, #954414, #954332, #954542, #955966, #955139, #956030, #956119).
* Add the ability to auto discover the server location on local deployment
  (LP: #917422, #927620, #917422, #928585, #929087, #932325, #948564)
* Allow the client to accept arbitrary environment variables from the
  server for script execution (LP: #954999).
* Make landscape-config exit non-zero when registration fails and
  --ok-no-register is not passed (LP: #271759).
* Check for the content of /sys/bus/xen/devices to report a machine as a Xen
  VM instead of just relying on the existence of /sys/bus/xen (LP: #921970).
* Make sure cloud registration succeeds if there is no kernel specified in
  the meta-data service (LP: #920453).
* Report private and public IP adresses from the metadata service at cloud
  registration time (LP: #918366).
* Add support for reporting hardware information using lshw (LP: #899002,
  #943975, #955734).
* Add support for the new attachment service in script execution
  (LP: #893040).
* Adds a new message type, 'register-provisioned-machine', which is meant
  to register computers using an OTP (LP: #881405).
* Add local cloning option for load testing (LP: #872830, #925924).
* Add more variables to preseeding (LP: #863204, #867710).
* Allow the configuration of the ping interval (LP: #397884).
* Add fake package reporters for load testing purposes (LP: #821571,
  #821570).
* Report a package reporter error to the server if no APT sources are
  configured, to trigger a package reporter alert (LP: #823769).

34. By Andreas Hasenack on 2011-07-22

* Try to load the old persist file if the current one doesn't exist or is
  empty (LP: #809210).
* Fallback to gethostname to get something interesting out of get_fqdn.
* Fix wrong ownership and permissions when the reporter is run as a result
  of applying a repository profile (LP: #804008).
* Keep original sources.list ownership (LP: #804548).
* Refactored tests (LP: #805746).
* Preserve permissions of sources.list (LP: #804548).
* Added a broker command line option (--record) that saves exchanges with the
  server to the filesystem
* Detect if running in a vmware guest (LP: #795794).
* Report VM type when run in the cloud (LP: #797069).
* Report VM type in non-cloud registration (LP: #795752).
* Report the package reporter result even in case of success, not just in
  case of failure (LP: #780406).
* Report package reporter errors (LP: #732490).
* Fix dependencies for hardy removing references to python 2.4 packages for
  pycurl and dbus (LP: #759764).
* The landscape client now reports whether it is running on a virtual machine
  or not.
* Add a plugin which manages APT sources.list and the associated GPG keys
  (LP: #758928).
* Limit the number of items in a network message to 200, to prevent problems
  when communication is interrupted with the server and the client
  accumulates too many network items, thus overloading the server when it's
  available again (LP: #760486).
* Updated version number in __init__.py so that the client reports the
  correct one in its user-agent string.

33. By Chuck Short on 2011-04-12

* debian/control, debian/rules: Add quilt
* debian/patches/fix-landscape-monitor.patch: Fix landscape:
  monitoring with gir1.0-gudev-1.0 installed. (LP: #747498)

32. By Andreas Hasenack on 2011-03-01

* New upstream version (LP: #727324)

  - Exit gracefully instead of crashing when the filesystem is
    read-only (LP: #649997).

  - Drop hal requirement (LP: #708502).

  - Enable HTTP compression in Curl (LP: #297623).

  - Explicitly name log files that need to be rotated (LP: #634236).

  - Assorted test suite fixes

  - Use a better load check for the sysinfo wrapper, taking into account the
    number of cores (LP: #643565).

  - Add an option to bootstrap cloud instances using cloud-init
    (LP: #701972).

  - Fix packaging for Natty (LP: #688115).

  - Force deletion of all the persist data for the monitoring plugins at
    resynchronization, instead of relying each one of them to do
    (LP: #688161).

  - Don't send the mount-activity message to the server anymore
    (LP: #688514).

  - Workaround a new behavior in NetworkManager where getfqdn would report
    localhost instead of useful hostname (LP: #649142).

31. By Andreas Hasenack on 2010-09-20

The client network plugin would send erroneous data if a network
interface was removed (and its kernel module removed as well) and
then readded (LP: #641264).

30. By Free Ekanayaka on 2010-07-28

* New upstream version (LP: #610744):

  - The Eucalyptus management plugin reports the output of the
    'euca-describe-availability-zones verbose' command, which includes
    information about the available instance types and the maximum
    number of each instance type that the cloud can support (LP: #599338)

  - Check if the package directory exists before trying to check the
    package changer lock in the dbus-proxy. This fixes a bug when upgrading
    a dbus-landscape which never registered (LP: #603514).

  - Allow an LDS server to bootstrap new cloud instances with its own CA,
    which is picked up by the client, written to a file on the instance, and
    used in subsequent exchanges with the server (LP: #605079).

  - Skip loopback interface when reporting device info (LP: #608314)

  - Disable landscape-sysinfo when load is more than 1 (LP: #608278)
