* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.2
  - Fix LP: #915888 - Handling of checkbox menuitems with a command
    node is completely broken
  - Make uGlobalMenu::RemoveMenuObjectAt work correctly when removed items
    are not contiguous
  - Don't try to recycle an item that wasn't a separator as an item that is
    a separator, as this breaks the menu (we already ensured that the reverse
    of this couldn't happen)

* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.1
  - Fix a crash where a menu is destroyed whilst there is a pending event
    to empty its recycle list

148. By Chris Coulson

* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.0.1
  - 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
    refreshing the history menu contents when the menu is opened no
    longer alters the menu structure, but results in a shifting of
    properties between existing nodes instead. 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 the history
    + The HUD can refresh our menus now without triggering layout updates
      (assuming that menu layout really hasn't changed, eg, by adding
      a bookmark)
  - Remove all use of the global observer service for sending our own
    internal notifications around
  - Clean up the way we ensure that the correct edit commands are
    enabled by just installing our own popupshowing handler rather
    than using an additional notification to fix things up after the
    default handler runs
  - Get rid of a static initializer
  - Don't support older than Firefox 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

* New upstream stable release (FIREFOX_11_0_BUILD1)

* Clean up search plugin installation now that we build our own
  language packs:
  - Drop the recursive symlink from /usr/lib/firefox-addons/searchplugins,
    which lintian kept complaining about
  - Don't effectively symlink distribution/searchplugins to searchplugins,
    as they have different layouts and this avoids the same data being
    iterated over twice
  - Revert to the upstream layout in distribution/searchplugins
  - Simplify distro-locale-searchplugins.patch, as we don't need to swap the
    loading order of common / locale-specific searchplugin paths now.
    $LIBDIR/distribution/searchplugins/common is no longer a symlink
    to $LIBDIR/searchplugins, so there is no need to have the ability for
    locale-specific plugins to override common ones. They already override
    those in $LIBDIR/searchplugins
    - add debian/firefox-locale.preinst.in, which will end up in all
      language packs to assist the symlink -> folder transition
    - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
    - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
    - update debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
    - update debian/rules
* Fix LP: #807733 - Firefox doesn't restart after upgrades where the version
  changes. Don't include the version number in the install path, as Firefox
  cannot re-exec itself. In doing this, we also move the distribution.ini
  back in to our installation directory, as that never made sense in
  - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
  - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
  - update debian/firefox-locale.preinst.in
  - update debian/firefox.lintian-overrides.in
  - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
  - update debian/rules
* Expose distribution/extensions in /usr/lib/firefox-addons, to allow
  administrators to add extensions that they want to add to default user
  profiles, and that they want the addon manager to keep updated. We lost
  this functionality when upgrading from Firefox 3.6, due to the loss of
  - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
  - update debian/firefox.install.in
  - update debian/firefox.links.in
  - update debian/firefox.postinst.in

[ Chris Coulson <email address hidden> ]
* Update debian/patches/fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch

143. By Chris Coulson

* New upstream release from the beta channel (FIREFOX_11_0b4_BUILD1)

* Update globalmenu-extension to 2.0.4
  - Add support for Firefox 12
  - Ensure we correctly hide dummy menu items
* 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: #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: #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 unnecessarily
  - add debian/patches/avoid-dbus-roundtrip-for-httpchannel.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Fix LP: #894166 - Make Firefox 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

[ Jamie Strandboge <email address hidden> ]
