* New upstream release.
  - Fix build issues with kernel fix for CVE-2010-3081 (LP: #642518).
  - Add compatibility with 2.6.35 kernels (LP: #573748).
  - Add compatibility with xserver 1.9 (LP: #630599).

  (LP: #616215).

Remove /etc/ati only after calling the fglrx-uninstall.sh
script. This will solve problems with dist-upgrades when
packages from the ati installer have been previously
installed (LP: #565407).

57. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-22

* debian/fglrx.preinst:
  - Prevent dist-upgrades from failing when removing diversions
    on libdri.so if the file still exists (LP: #567425).

56. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-14

* debian/fglrx.dirs, fglrx.install.in, fglrx.postinst,
  - Make /etc/ati a slave link which points to
    /usr/lib/fglrx/etc/ati. This will avoid issues when
    upgrading packages with user modified files in
    /etc/ati (LP: #559587, LP: #440233).
  - Make sure to remove /etc/ati if it's not a link.

55. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-11

* New upstream release:
  - Prevent the driver from causing X to segfault with
    certain cards (LP: #554191).

54. By Steve Langasek on 2010-04-09

* debian/rules:
  - check DEB_HOST_ARCH, not DEB_BUILD_ARCH, so a cross-build
    test is useful for detecting problems...
  - handle dh_installdirs differently, since dh apparently calls this oddly
    (due to the varying architecture fields in debian/control, I think?)
  - can't use {foo,bar} expansions with /bin/sh; move the list of files to
    remove to debian/clean.

53. By Steve Langasek on 2010-04-09

debian/rules: make sure dh_installdirs is called before trying to write
out modprobe.conf in a directory it creates.

52. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-08

* debian/rules, fglrx.dirs, fglrx.postinst:
  - Install the blacklist file in /lib/fglrx instead of
    /usr/lib/fglrx so that the file is available early
    in the boot process when /usr is on a different
    partition (LP: #538071).
  - Ignore errors when trying to update the initramfs
    with -k $CURRENT_KERNEL which is known to fail when
    using chroots (LP: #556653).
  - Make 10fglrx a slave link so that it's removed from
    /etc/X11/Xsession.d when we switch to a different
    alternative (LP: #552903).
* debian/fglrx.preinst:
  - Make sure that any 10fglrx file in /etc/X11/Xsession.d
    which is not a symbolic link is removed.
  - Remove diversions previously added by xorg-driver-fglrx
    not by fglrx (LP: #552782). Thanks to Steve Langasek
    for spotting the problem.

51. By Alberto Milone on 2010-03-30

* debian/control:
  - Do not conflict with the old packages name (LP: #545992).
  - Provide libamdxvba1.
