Release notes 

* hookutils.in_session_of_problem(): Check $XDG_SESSION_ID and
   /run/systemd/sessions instead of the cgroup, as the latter does not work
   under cgmanager.
 * ProblemReport: Set a timestamp of 0 in gzip compressed fields; they are
   meaningless and cause unnecessary jitter in the output.
 * launchpad backend: Fix unclosed file in upload().

   values. (LP: #1345653)

   GNOME. Thanks Scott Sanbar. (LP: #1422176)

 * hookutils, recent_syslog(): Read system logs from the journal when running
   under systemd, and fall back to /var/log/syslog if not.
 * hookutils, attach_mac_events(): Read kernel violation messages from dmesg
   instead of /var/log/kern.log, as that's specific to rsyslog and its
