casper 1.402 source package in Ubuntu


casper (1.402) disco; urgency=medium

  * Support multi-layered fsimage:
    Add a layerfs-path kernel parameter pointing at the leaf to the leaf
    layer of an overlay-compatible multi-layer live filesystem
    on the medium.
    By default, it is not set and multi layer is disabled and falls back
    to the default behaviour of casper.
    A relative path uses "live-mediate-path" as root directory. All the
    layer images of the same hierarchy must be in the same directory.
    Manpage is updated.
    Co-work with Jean-Baptiste.
