52. By Chris Coulson on 2011-04-09

* New upstream release v0.9
* All patches are merged in to the upstream branch now

* Fix LP: #750305 - Please update links and configs for Natty release.
  Rather than doing this manually for every release, we add a dist.js with
  distro information (populated at build time with lsb_release) and just
  do all this automatically.
* Fix LP: #752364 - Plugin Finder Service never finds anything. Use the
  release info in dist.js to construct the URL, now that this got dropped
  from Firefox
* Fix LP: #728826 - Update icons to new versions.
* Drop the pluginGlue.js module. This didn't work, as we can no longer
  use a modules registerSelf method to use nsICategoryManager at startup,
  due to the XPCOM registration changes in Firefox 4. Instead, add
  category entries with the chrome.manifest
* Fix LP: #709125 - User agent doesn't include Ubuntu in it so
  apt.ubuntu.com doesn't work. We add an extra X-Ubuntu HTTP header in
  requests to apt.ubuntu.com, rather than send this information out in
  every request in the UA string

* Add build-depend on lsb-release so we can create dist.js

51. By Nobuto Murata on 2011-04-03

* Update Japanese(ja) translations (LP: #746538)
  - add debian/patches/10_update_ja_translation.patch

50. By Chris Coulson on 2011-02-11

* Don't set some preferences that we're already setting in Firefox
  - add debian/patches/09_dont_duplicate_prefs.patch

49. By Chris Coulson on 2011-01-26

* Set maxVersion to 4.0.*, things are not likely to break before final
  - update debian/patches/06_firefox-4.patch
* Fix LP: #333799 - Default dictionary is unspecified
  - add debian/patches/08_default_dictionary.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

48. By Chris Coulson on 2011-01-12

* Bump maxVersion to 4.0b10pre
  - update debian/patches/06_firefox-4.patch

47. By Chris Coulson on 2011-01-06

* Fix LP: #579091 - ubufox interferes with toolbar buttons for other add-ons.
  Don't initialize or assign any value to gBrowser in alternatePlugins.js.
  It runs in the context of browser.xul, so gBrowser will always exist
  once the browser window has loaded
  - add debian/patches/07_dont_mess_with_gbrowser.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

46. By Chris Coulson on 2011-01-01

* Add patch to update for Firefox 4:
  - Rename AboutHome to AboutStartup, and have it handle about:startup now
    (to not conflict with the new about:home handler in Firefox
  - Set default home page to about:startpage
  - Add support for the XPCOM changes in Gecko 2.0
  - In the restart notifier, don't hardcode a list of filenames for different
    browser versions, but just use MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER instead. This will
    indirectly fix LP: #511250 and should prevent it from happening again
  - Look in the new location for the restart-required trigger, it has moved
    to a location not monitored by update-notifier now, so we only get the
    restart required notification in the browser
  - Merge the plugin finder code from Firefox 4. This now uses AddonManager,
    so the MinVersion needs to be bumped
  - Drop the FF2.0 specific code
  - Drop the AddonsOverlay and associated code, this hasn't worked for
    several releases since we started using software-center, and nobody
    really noticed so far. We can reimplement this at a later date if wanted,
    but it throws JS exceptions when loading in FF4.0 now
  - Specify for the extension to be unpacked by the installer. Without this,
    the prefs aren't used
  - Get the distributionID field for the pfs URL from the preferences, rather
    than hard-coding a value
