92. By Alberto Milone on 2010-10-04

* data/handlers/nvidia.py:
  - Re-enable nvidia-173 now that it's compatible with xserver 1.9.

91. By Alberto Milone on 2010-09-23

* data/handlers/fglrx.py, nvidia.py:
  - Re-enable fglrx now that it's compatible with xserver 1.9.
  - Make sure that the initramfs is updated for both the newest kernel
    and for the current kernel, so as to be consistent with the default
    behaviour of the DKMS template that both driver packages use.

90. By Martin Pitt on 2010-09-15

* Add support for bypassing local detection for search_driver(). (Merged
  from trunk). Thanks to Till Kamppeter for the initial patches!
* jockey/ui.py: Ubuntu does not currently support local printer driver
  handlers, so speed up the lookup of remote ones by disabling local
  detection of hardware/handlers in search_driver() if we are looking for a
  printer driver. (Note that this is a hack, but the speedup is significant)
  (LP: #574396)
* Add OSLib.notify_reboot_required() and call it in set_handler_enabled().
  Merged from trunk, and add Ubuntu specific implementation using
  /usr/share/update-notifier/notify-reboot-required in OSLib. (LP: #570215)
* data/handlers/b43.py: Install firmware-b43-installer package instead of
  b43-fwcutter. (LP: #595344)

89. By Alberto Milone on 2010-09-07

* data/handlers/nvidia.py:
  - Don't set the IgnoreABI option in xorg.conf any longer as nvidia-
    current is now ABI compatible with the new xserver.

88. By Martin Pitt on 2010-08-24

* New upstream release:
  - ui --list: show auto-install flag
  - Add flag file based auto install mode
  - Add a title to the "search drivers" dialog. Thanks to Bilal Akhtar!
    (LP: #616569)
  - Rename "Hardware Drivers" to "Additional Drivers", to point out that
    Jockey is not responsible for all kinds of drivers. Thanks to Robert
    Roth for the initial patch. (LP: #409338)
  - Hide "Remove" button if a driver needs reboot. Thanks to Bilal Akhtar
    for the initial patch! (LP: #600804)
* debian/control: Add missing ${misc:Depends}.
* debian/control: No need to build-depend on python-dev.
* debian/control: Fix nvidia-common dependency.
* Add debian/source/format: "1.0", since changes are bzr maintained.
* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.1.

87. By Alberto Milone on 2010-08-12

* data/handlers/fglrx.py, nvidia.py:
  - Temporarily disable fglrx, nvidia 96 and 173 and ignore the fact that nvidia
    current claims to be ABI incompatible with the new xserver.

86. By Martin Pitt on 2010-07-23

* New upstream release. Changes since our last snapshot:
  - Add a fake modalias file for local testing
  - Update translations from Launchpad and update German ones
  - Fix Polish translation. (LP: #451968)
  - Add Handler.auto_install() flag and --auto-install mode. Thanks to Evan
* data/handlers/broadcom_wl.py: Mark for automatic installation.

85. By Jonathan Thomas on 2010-05-16

Remove the X-KDE-SubstitueUID key from jockey-kde.desktop.in. It is no
longer needed since Jockey now has PolicyKit support, and poses a less
than desirable situation where the whole frontend is run as root.
Fixes LP: #581379

84. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-19

* data/handlers/fglrx.py, nvidia.py:
  - Do not check the non null value of current_alternative and
    target_alternative. This caused jockey to skip the condition
    that we really wanted to test (i.e. do the two alternatives
    match?) and show the driver as enabled when the target
    alternative didn't exist (as the package hadn't been installed
    yet) (LP: #562226).

83. By Alberto Milone on 2010-04-12

[ Alberto Milone ]
* Do not check that the module is loaded in enabled() in the nvidia
  handler, as this is what we should do in used(). Just make sure
  that the module and its alias are not blacklisted. This prevents
  Jockey from claiming that the installation of nvidia driver failed
  when when it didn't (LP: #552653).

[ Jonathan Thomas ]
* Don't crash when closed with the "x" button (LP: #552723, LP: #398912).
  Thanks ThorbjørnTux!

[ Martin Pitt ]
* i18n "Install Drivers" string. (LP: #542552)
