[ Shih-Yuan Lee (FourDollars) ]
* debian/nvidia_supported,
  debian/rules:
  - Add subsystem ID parsing support for LP: #1255813.

[ Alberto Milone ]
* debian/dkms_nvidia/patches/register-VT-switch-requirements.patch:
  - Make sure to call pm_vt_switch_{required,unregister}(), so that
    the kernel knows that the driver requires a vt switch at
    suspend/resume time. This resolves a corruption issue on resume
    from S3 (LP: #1210077).
    Thanks to NVIDIA for the patch.
* debian/dkms_nvidia_uvm/patches/buildfix_kernel_3.12.patch,
  debian/dkms_nvidia/patches/buildfix_kernel_3.13.patch:
  - Add support for Linux 3.13 (LP: #1294163).
* debian/substvars:
  - Add support for X ABI 15 and lts-trusty.
* New upstream release:
  - Added support for X.org xserver ABI 15 (xorg-server 1.15).
  - Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if video memory
    is exhausted and the GPU does not support rendering to system
    memory.
  - Updated nvidia-installer to make the --multiple-kernel-modules
    option imply the --no-unified-memory option: Unified memory is
    incompatible with multiple kernel modules.
  - Updated the behavior of the nvidia-settings PowerMizer
    Preferred Mode drop-down menu, to make the setting apply
    consistently across all GPUs in an SLI group.
  - Improved the robustness of the NVIDIA X driver in scenarios
    where GPU-accessible memory for allocating pixmaps was
    exhausted.
  - Added NV-CONTROL attributes to control the brightness of the
    illuminated logos on certain graphics boards.For example, to
    turn off the illumination of the
    GEFORCE GTX
    lettering on the GeForce GTX 780, use
    nvidia-settings --assign GPULogoBrightness=0
  - Fixed a bug that prevented screen transformations from being
    applied properly when starting X.
  - GLX protocol for the following OpenGL extensions from OpenGL
    2.1 and OpenGL 3.0 have been promoted from unofficial to ARB
    approved official status:
      GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object
      GL_NV_conditional_render
      GL_ARB_map_buffer_range
      GL_EXT_texture_integer
      GL_ARB_vertex_array_object
    GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object was the last piece of protocol
    needed to have official support for indirect rendering with all
    OpenGL 2.1 commands.
  - GLX Protocol for the miscellaneous OpenGL 3.0 commands not
    associated with specific extensions has also been promoted from
    unofficial to ARB approved status.
  - Deprecated display mask related configuration of display
    devices via NV-CONTROL and nvidia-settings.Display target
    specifications should be used instead - A display target is one
    of the display's valid names, with an optional GPU or X screen
    qualifier.
  - Deprecated the following NV-CONTROL attributes:
      NV_CTRL_CONNECTED_DISPLAYS
      NV_CTRL_ENABLED_DISPLAYS
      NV_CTRL_ASSOCIATED_DISPLAYS
      NV_CTRL_NOTEBOOK_INTERNAL_LCD
      NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MASTER
      NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_SLAVES
      NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MASTERABLE
      NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_SLAVEABLE
    Also, although NV_CTRL_PROBE_DISPLAYS is still operational, the
    return value has been deprecated and should not be used.
  - Added deprecation warning messages in nvidia-settings when
    deprecated attributes are used.This also includes display mask
    usage.
