97. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_14_0_BUILD1)
  - see LP: #1024564 for USN information

* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.2.5
  - Fix a crash in uGlobalMenu::RecycleList::~RecycleList()
  - Fix LP: #1010580 - update the window event timestamp when handling
    menu events

  - update debian/patches/series
* Update desktop file translations
  - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
* Add application/x-xpinstall to the MimeType field of the desktop file
  - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
* Drop almost all mimetypes from the desktop file. Thunderbird won't display
  any of them if you invoke it with files of these types. It will just
  open a Compose window and add the file as an attachment
  - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
* Drop the ability to select between tree/system libraries using a single
  option in debian/rules. It adds additional complexity and was never used
  - update debian/config/mozconfig.in
  - update debian/control.in
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.links.in
  - update debian/rules
* Shuffle the order of google-breakpad/src/common/dwarf/Makefile.in to fix a
  variable substitution issue, which was causing some objects to be built with
  the wrong compiler flags, resulting in dump_syms crashing (LP: #1002590)
  - add debian/patches/fix-makefile-substitution-bug.patch
* Don't set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in our shell wrapper, and install
  dependentlibs.list instead now
  - update debian/thunderbird.sh.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
* Drop StartupWMClass from the desktop file now that WM_CLASS is the same
  as the binary name (also fixes LP: #1012158)
  - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
  - update debian/rules
* Apport hook improvements:
  - Sort preferences alphabetically in the apport data
  - Treat preferences set in default addons as default prefs so that
    they don't show up in apport data, unless the preference files have
    been modified
  - Support random pref files dropped in to the Thunderbird install folder,
    and preferences from application bundles
  - Fix ordering issues when loading preferences

[ Ben Collins <email address hidden> ]

  - add debian/patches/fix-dtoa-build-on-ppc.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

96. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_13_0_1_BUILD1)
  - see LP: #1007556 for USN information

* Update globalmenu-extension to v3.2.3
  - Reduce our memory footprint a bit, which wasn't really a lot anyway
  - Avoid the use of the component manager for accessing commonly used
    services, where "commonly used" means "accessed when building every
    menu item". This should save some CPU cycles when building or
    refreshing menus
  - Try to recycle menuitems when they are removed from a menu by
    adding contiguous blocks of removed items to a "free list" which
    is emptied asynchronously, and reusing the items in this list when
    new items are added in place of the removed items. This means that
    menus which fully refresh on opening no longer alter the menu
    structure, but instead just update properties on existing nodes.
    This has a few benefits:
    + With no layout changes, unity-panel-service doesn't request
      the entire menu structure, which significantly reduces dbus traffic
      and makes it much faster to refresh the menu contents
    + The size of the menu doesn't change when it is refreshed, which
      eliminates the flicker that used to occur when opening some menus
  - Remove all use of the global observer service for sending our own
    internal notifications around
  - Get rid of a static initializer
  - Don't support older than Thunderbird 11
  - Fix some GError leaks
  - Hide the internal menu when creating a native menu, rather than
    waiting for confirmation that the native menu is registered
    successfully. We don't try to create a native menu if we don't
    find a menu service to register the menu with anyway
  - Keep menu contents updated whilst the menu is open, rather than
    just whilst it is opening
  - Fix LP: #915888 - Formatting toolbar menu entry is inverted
* Refresh build-depends:
  - Bump minimum GTK version to 2.14 as we build with GIO support
  - Add minimum requirement for glib (2.18)
  - Drop libidl-dev, this doesn't appear to be needed now
  - Bump minimum NSPR version to 4.9.0 for --enable-system-nspr builds
  - Bump minimum sqlite version to 3.7.10 for --enable-system-sqlite
  - Bump minimum NSS version to 3.13.2 for --enable-system-nss builds
* Clean up the file exclude list and add comments for excluded files
  - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
* Make it easy to run Thunderbird in valgrind for builds that are compiled
  with explicit valgrind support
  - update debian/thunderbird.sh.in
* Refresh patches:
  - update debian/patches/revert-bmo621446-investigation.patch
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-addressbook-toolbar-icons.patch
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-compose-toolbar-icons.patch
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-messenger-toolbar-icons.patch
  - update debian/patches/dont-include-hyphenation-patterns.patch
* Drop patches fixed upstream:
  - remove debian/patches/use-menubar-text-colour-on-tabbar.patch
  - remove debian/patches/no-sps-profiler-on-unsupported-archs.patch
  - remove debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
  - remove debian/patches/avoid-dbus-roundtrip-for-httpchannel.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Bump debhelper compat to 7
  - update debian/apport/blacklist.in
  - update debian/appoty/source_thunderbird.py.in
  - update debian/compat
  - update debian/config/mozconfig.in
  - update debian/control.in
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.install.in
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.links.in
  - update debian/thunderbird-globalmenu.dirs.in

  - update debian/thunderbird.dirs.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.links.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.lintian-overrides.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.sh.in
* Use "general.useragent.locale" to select the searchengine locale
  - update debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
  - add debian/patches/dont-override-general-useragent-locale.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Drop no-dynamic-nss-softokn.patch. This patch has no documentation and
  it doesn't look like it's actually useful for anything
* Apport hook improvements:
  - Add support for reporting preference defaults that are set by extensions
  - When reporting preferences, record the source of each preference
  - Report plugin packages for plugins that are installed with the
    package manager
  - Add some addon manager related prefs to the whitelist
  - Display additional metadata in the extensions report
  - Take "default-to-compatible" in to account when determining whether
    the user is running incompatible addons
  - Attach submitted crash ID's to bug reports
  - Report if files in the profile folder have broken permissions
* Update compare-locales to 0.9.5
* Fix for NSS libs not being signed, breaking FIPS
  - update debian/rules
* Update StartupWMClass to the correct name
  - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
  - update debian/rules

95. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_12_0_1_BUILD1)
  - see LP: #987305 for USN information

* Update globalmenu-extension to 2.0.6
* Call xvfb-run with "-a" in case there are other servers running on the
  - update debian/build/testsuite.mk
* Thunderbird recommends libcanberra0 now that bmo: #635918 has landed
  (LP: #732572)
  - update debian/control{,in}
* Refresh patches
  - update debian/patches/avoid-dbus-roundtrip-for-httpchannel.patch
  - update debian/patches/no-sps-profiler-on-unsupported-archs.patch
* Drop patches fixed upstream
  - remove debian/patches/ctypes-callback-reentry-fix.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Drop the version number from the install path, like we've done for Firefox
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.install.in
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.links.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.dirs.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.links.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.lintian-overrides.in
* Fix LP: #939652 - Web search functionality is broken in Ubuntu builds.
  Ship the localized Opensearch plugins in distribution/searchplugins.
  Also add a patch to use the locale of the global chrome package to
  select the search locale, like we do with Firefox. Add another patch
  to fix various bugs in webSearchProvider.js (see bmo: #733802)
  - add debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/thunderbird.dirs.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.links.in
  - update debian/vendor.js
* Fix LP: #894166 - Make Thunderbird work with our system hyphenation
  patterns, and stop including our own
  - update debian/vendor.js
  - add debian/patches/dont-include-hyphenation-patterns.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Fix LP: #925907 - 12.04 Thunderbird colour theme is unreadable. Use
  -moz-menubartext rather than MenuText for elements with menubar styled
  backgrounds. Should also fix LP: #856939
  - add debian/patches/use-menubar-text-colour-on-tabbar.patch
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-compose-toolbar-icons.patch
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-addressbook-toolbar-icons.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Make the language packs Architecture: any. Whilst they are actually
  architecture independent, we do install them in to /usr/lib (as the
  extensions location is shared with architecture-specific extensions).
  This also avoids the problem of offering incompatible language pack
  upgrades to users on architectures where Thunderbird fails to build
  (I'm looking at you, powerpc)
  - update debian/control.langpacks
  - update debian/control.langpacks.unavail
  - update debian/rules
  - refresh debian/control
* Disable fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch, as it needs some work.
  This means that there is currently no powerpc support

94. By Micah Gersten

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_11_0_1_BUILD1)
  - see USN-1400-4

93. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_11_0_BUILD1)
  - see LP: #951262 for USN information

* Update globalmenu-extension to 2.0.3
* Drop patches fixed upstream:
  - remove debian/patches/fix-cursor-handling.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Refresh patches:
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-messenger-toolbar-icons.patch
* Ensure we include locales in the tarball if they are in shipped-locales
  but not in all-locales
  - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
* Always set the update channel - not setting it at build-time on release
  builds breaks the extensions.checkCompatibility pref. The only things
  using it at runtime are nsBlocklistService, Test Pilot (beta + aurora)
  and the about dialog (where the channel is hidden anyway)
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
* Fix LP: #898883 - IPC xpcshell tests hang the buildd's. Give all
  xpcshell tests an X display, as plugin-container won't work without one
  - update debian/build/testsuite.mk
* Turn on all IPC xpcshell tests again (only applicable when the testsuite
  is enabled in the future)
  - update debian/build/testsute.mk
* Update theme-refresh-messenger-toolbar-icons.patch to work with
  tabs-on-top, where the toolbar isn't styled like the menubar
  - update debian/patches/theme-refresh-messenger-toolbar-icons.patch
* Refresh shipped locales for beta (addition of Armenian and Croatian)
  - refresh debian/config/locales.shipped
  - refresh debian/config/locales.all
  - refresh debian/control
* Fix LP: #915895 - Just set autoDisableScopes to 0. Other distributions
  are already doing this, and we already made this feature pretty much
  useless by allowing extensions in the application directory, so that our
  language packs aren't disabled by default
  - update debian/vendor.js
* Fix LP: #939657 - Don't call g_settings_new each time we create a HTTP
  channel. Doing this causes a dbus roundtrip, and results in us spamming
  the session bus and dbus-daemon using lots of CPU when updating mailboxes
  - add debian/patches/avoid-dbus-roundtrip-for-httpchannel.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Fix LP: #926495 - Add patch based on one from bmo: #691898 to enable
  building on ppc again
  - add debian/patches/fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Fix LP: #926495 - Disable the SPS profiler on unsupported architectures
  - add debian/patches/no-sps-profiler-on-unsupported-archs.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

* Set "Channel = Unavailable" if channel-prefs.js doesn't contain a
  channel name
  - update debian/apport/source_thunderbird.py.in

  - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
* Use makedirs to create the local cache directory
  - update debian/build-create-tarball.py
* Drop patches fixed upstream:
  - remove debian/patches/only-add-ENABLE_JIT-to-CXXFLAGS-if-jit-is-enabled.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Refresh patches
  - update debian/patches/theme-resfresh-addressbook-toolbar-icons.patch
* Drop xpt.py and xpidl from $LIBDIR. xpidl is gone, and xpt.py isn't included
  there in the upstream SDK
  - update debian/thunderbird-dev.links.in
* Fix LP: #901838 - Ugly busy pointer, due to libxcursor no longer matching
  the cursor bitmap to a nice themed pointer
  - add debian/patches/fix-cursor-handling.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

[ Micah Gersten <email address hidden> ]
* Add patch from upstream to fix PowerPC FTBFS (bmo: 703534) aka
  Build failure on platforms without YARR JIT
  - add debian/patches/fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch
  - update debian/patches/series

90. By Chris Coulson

* Update eds extension to 0.3.8 (r96)
  - Fix LP: #872639 - "Cannot open book: Could not create DesktopcouchSession
    object". Don't display errors from evolution-data-server for now, as
    the alert dialog is modal and makes Thunderbird unusable. The error
    messages aren't useful either. Note, this doesn't fix the actual bug
    with desktopcouch
  - Fix LP: #863150 - Endless loop with password prompt
  - Fix a shutdown crash
* Update messagingmenu-extension to 0.8.2
  - Should hopefully fix LP: #850229 by clearing the count if unread items
    are deleted from a folder

89. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_7_0_1_BUILD1)
  - Fixes LP: #861664

88. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_7_0_BUILD1)

* Pass --enable-update-channel to configure on beta/aurora. Although we don't
  use the updater, this information does appear in crash reports, which is
  useful. We also use it in the Apport hook, and it will be used to enable
  testpilot on aurora/beta when it exists in the future
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/config/mozconfig.in
  - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  - update debian/apport/thunderbird.py.in
