casper 1.454 source package in Ubuntu


casper (1.454) groovy; urgency=medium

  * Based on feedback from Thomas Schmitt, make the bootable partition a
    separate partition at sector zero like xorriso does, because some UEFI
    implementations may wrongly ignore a disk with a protective MBR marked

casper (1.453) groovy; urgency=medium

  * If creating a persistent partition, manually restore a 'bootable' flag
    on any protective MBR, if present, to ensure compatibility with BIOS
    implementations which require this.  This is slightly different from
    the xorriso implementation, because we mark the iso9660 partition as
    bootable instead of creating a separate empty partition, but anything
    looking at the MBR should be fine and anything that's GPT-aware should
    not care.  LP: #1899308
  * Document the VCS for this package.
