* SECURITY UPDATE: information disclosure via simulate dbus method
  (LP: #1449587)
  - debian/patches/lp1449587.diff: drop privileges when running lintian,
    update tests.
  - CVE-2015-1323

97. By Michael Vogt on 2012-10-12

* SECURITY UPDATE: check downloaded keyid (LP: #1052789)
  - CVE-2012-0962

96. By Sebastian Heinlein on 2012-04-09

* New upstream snapshot:
  - Fix: Catch a possible exception in apt.cache.Cache.required_download
    which can occur if the user e.g. rebooted the system during a running
    debconf question (fixes LP: #659438)
    Furthermore raise ERROR_INCOMPLETE_INSTALL to signal the client
    that a call of FixIncompleteInstall() (basically a dpkg --configure -a
    call) fixes the issue
  - Fix: Sync all properties of the D-Bus transaction in the client before
    emitting the Finished signal (fixes LP: #747172) to ensure all changed
    properties are available (the order of received signals is not
    guranteed and the finished signal could be received before an error
    signal)
    Additionally raise the timeout before removing a transaction from
    D-Bus on the server side to give clients more time to sync
  - Fix wrong variable names in the download progress (fixes LP: #971839,
    LP: #976521)
  - Fix: Catch a possible pipe reading error (fixes LP: #733090)
  - Fix: Don't show the name of aptdaemon in crash reports
    (fixes LP: #973370)
    Aptdaemon is a system daemon and should work and fail silently
  - Fix: Fallback to a default terminal width of 80 chars (fixes LP: #948588)
    The width request could fail on standard input/output redirections
  - Fix: Don't use a reserved name for the simulate helper function
  - Fix: Convert exceptions to string before raising TransactionFailed()
  - Fix wrong variable name in the add license key failed error message
  - Fix: Don't overwrite the GObject.GObject.disconnect in
    aptdemon.client.Transaction by renaming the method to
    _disconnect_from_dbus()
  - Fix: Allow to cancel a transaction which hasn't been queued yet and
    is still in limbo
  - Fix: Raise NotImplementedError instead of ImplementedError
  - Add a test case for config file changes handling
* debian/aptdaemon.install:
  - Don't ship the obsolete .desktop file anymore

95. By Michael Vogt on 2012-04-02

New upstream snapshot:
* merged patch for LP: #959131 (CVE 2012-0944)
* pkcompat: Don't crash if the system time went backwards during a
  transaction (Fixes LP: #940367)
* worker: catch SystemErrors from python-apt when performing a system
  upgrade (fixes LP: #932581)
* pkcompat: Don't crash if an unsupported locale is used for the
  transaction, fixes LP: #944553
* Fix download progress information for translations of languages with
  an ISO 639 2T code (3 letters), e.g. Asturian (ast) - fixes LP: #966111
* test: Add a test to ensure that every transaction is simulated
  before it gets queued.

94. By Michael Vogt on 2012-03-14

New upstream snapshot:
* lock: Fix an exception if the lock file doesn't exists
  (fixes LP: #954581)

* Make the network detection code more robust (Fixes LP:#933597)
* Add missing file to POTFILES.in. (LP: #953938)
* more fixes

92. By Michael Vogt on 2012-03-09

* New upstream snapshot:
  - store sources.list credentials in /etc/apt/auth.conf instead of

    0640

  - worker: Allow to install an alternative version (by number or by
     origin) of an already installed package
  - pkcompat: improve UpdatesChanged signal emission
