7. By Alberto Milone on 2014-09-15

* debian/substvars:
  - Add support for X ABIs 15 and 18 and for lts-trusty (LP: #1294163).
* New upstream release:
  - Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels (LP: #1294163).
  - Fixed a bug that could result in system instability while
    restoring the VGA console.
  - Fixed an interaction problem with xserver 1.15 that
    occasionally caused OpenGL applications to continue rendering
    when they are minimized or unmapped.
  - Updated nvidia-bug-report.sh to search the systemd journal for
    X server logs and messages from the NVIDIA kernel module.
  - Added support for X.org xserver ABI 18 (xorg-server 1.16).
  - Fixed a bug that caused corruption or blank screens on monitors
    that use EDID version 1.3 or older when they are connected via
    DisplayPort on graphics boards that use external DisplayPort
    encoders, such as the Quadro FX 4800.

* New upstream release (LP: #1259237):
  - Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
  - Updated the NVIDIA OpenGL driver to write temporary files to
    $TMPDIR if it is set, instead of unconditionally writing to
    /tmp (LP: #1212425).
  - Updated a fallback of writing temporary files to $HOME/.nvidia
    to use $HOME/.nv instead, as the latter path is already used
    for other NVIDIA driver related files.

[ Alberto Milone ]
* debian/substvars:
  - Add support for lts flavours up to saucy.
* debian/templates/control.in:
  - Depend on lib32gcc1 [amd64], libc6-i386 [amd64]
    (LP: #1236945).
  - Drop lpia.
* debian/templates/dkms.conf.in:
  - Drop patche for Linux 3.11.
* debian/rules:
  - Blacklist the opposite flavour.
  - Blacklist kernel modules from the other flavours.
* debian/templates/nvidia-graphics-drivers.dirs.in,
  - Remove nvidia-settings icon, desktop file, and autostart file.
    This is all provided by nvidia-settings now.
* debian/templates/nvidia-graphics-drivers.prerm.in,
  - Disable glamoregl.
  - Do not update gmenucache any more.

[ Andy Dick ]
* debian/templates/nvidia-graphics-drivers.preinst.in:
  - Attempt uninstallation of any existing .run file
    installation before installing Debian-packaged
* debian/templates/nvidia-graphics-drivers.postinst.in:
  - Add libcuda.so symlinks in /usr/lib*.
* debian/rules:
  - Conditionalize the copying of Makefile.kbuild to
    Makefile. This adds support for newer drivers,
    while maintaining support for packaging older drivers.
  - Avoid extracting unnecessary .run files. The 64-bit
    package needs both the 32- and 64-bit .run files, but
    the 32-bit package does not. Change the unpackaging
    rules to unpack only the native package by default,
    and only unpack the 32-bit x86 package on amd64.
    Also, instead of changing the .run file permissions
    to ensure that the .run file is executable, just call
    it as an argument to sh.
  - Don't assume that extracted files are writable.
    The package contents extracted from some .run file
    installers may not have write permissions enabled.
    To work around this, move files instead of copying
    them to a temporary location before running sed
    scripts, and add force flags to applicable commands.

* debian/dkms/patches/buildfix_kernel_3.11.patch:
  - Add support for Linux 3.11.
* debian/templates/dkms.conf.in:
  - Drop patch for Linux 3.10.
* debian/rules:
  - Add the download-sources target.
* New upstream release (LP: #1219908):
  - Implemented workarounds for two Adobe Flash bugs by
    applying libvdpau commit
    ca9e637c61e80145f0625a590c91429db67d0a40 to the
    version of libvdpau shipped with the NVIDIA driver.
  - Fixed a bug in nvidia-settings that could cause the
    wrong resolution to be set in basic mode for setups
    based on one display per X screen.
