gnome-session 3.22.1-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


gnome-session (3.22.1-1ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - debian/
      + Recommend session-migration
      + Remove gnome-shell circular dependency to ease upgrades
      + Don't suggest desktop-base
      + Move xwayland dependency to gnome-session and
        make gnome-session Arch: any
    - Split ubuntu-session out of gnome-session.
    - Add upstart user session and systemd user session:
      debian/data, debian/gnome-session-bin.user-session.upstart
    - debian/gnome-session-bin.postinst, debian/gnome-session-bin.prerm:
       Moved registering gnome-session binary as a session manager to
       gnome-session-bin package
    - don't install gnome-mimeapps.list (installed by desktop-file-utils in
      debian/gnome-session-common.dirs, gnome-session-common.install,
      gnome-session-common.maintscript, gnome-session-common.postinst
    - debian/patches/13_display_session_properties.patch: Display
      session-properties as the Startup Applications capplet was removed from
      gnome-control-center, which makes it hard to discover the
      gnome-session-properties tool. (Closes: #683814)
    - debian/patches/22_support_autostart_delay.patch:
       Bugzilla patch to support adding a delay to autostart apps, using
       a "X-GNOME-Autostart-Delay" key in the desktop file
    - debian/patches/50_ubuntu_sessions.patch, debian/gnome-wayland.desktop:
       + Add Ubuntu session
       + Add --session=gnome to GNOME sessions now that the "ubuntu" session
         is the default. Use TryExec to test if gnome-shell is installed.
    - debian/patches/51_remove_session_saving_from_gui.patch:
       add GNOME_SESSION_SAVE environment variable for people wanting to
       use the save session still, knowing that it can break your system
       if used unwisely
    - debian/patches/53_add_sessionmigration.patch:
      launch session-migration if present at the start of the session. This
      sync tool runns different session migration scripts that can be
      provided in various desktop packages.
    - debian/patches/95_dbus_request_shutdown.patch: Add "RequestShutdown" and
      "RequestReboot" DBus methods to allow other applications to shutdown or
      reboot the machine via the session manager.
    - debian/patches/103_kill_the_fail_whale.patch: Kill the Fail Whale as it
      tends to be more annoying than helpful
    - debian/patches/revert_remove_gnome_session_properties.patch: Keep the
      session-properties applet for ubuntu sessions
    - debian/patches/export_env_to_upstart.patch: Update the Upstart environment
      before the plain D-Bus one. This is to work around a bug where Upstart
      brokenly forwards variables which contain an "=" to the D-Bus environment,
      resulting in invalid environment variables in the session (see bug
  * Make gnome-session-wayland a transitional package and move its contents
    to the gnome-session package
  * Drop Conflicts/Breaks/Replaces not needed after Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  * Refresh patches as needed
  * Add debian/patches/revert_remove_gnome_session_properties2.patch:
    - Revert another commit that removed the .ui and .svg icons for
      "Startup Applications". .png icons were also removed but they aren't
      as important and don't fit in a quilt patch
  * Add git_fix_gpu_cache_info.patch, from 3.22 branch:
    - Correctly show 2nd GPU when running GNOME/Unity Settings app
  * Dropped patches applied in new version:
    - dont_override_IM_variables.patch
    - allow_overriding_qt_platformtheme.patch

gnome-session (3.22.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release.

gnome-session (3.22.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release.
  * Drop debian/patches/git_fix-bashism.patch, merged upstream.
  * Bump debhelper compat level to 10.
  * Don't fail to restore the old desktop session files if we only build
    architecture specific binary packages (gnome-session is arch:all).

gnome-session (3.21.90-4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Instead of patching the build system to get the old deskop session files
    back, remove the new ones and ship a local copy of gnome-wayland.desktop
    which was generated from the gnome-3-20 branch. This is much simpler and
    we don't lose all the translations this way.
  * Show uninstalled files via dh_install --list-missing.

gnome-session (3.21.90-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Switch back to Xorg by default.
    We divert from upstream here and switch the default GNOME session back to
    Xorg for Stretch. This way, users who explicitly chose the GNOME session
    in the display manager won't be automatically switched over to Wayland.
    It's still possible to run Wayland via the "GNOME on Wayland" session.

gnome-session (3.21.90-2) experimental; urgency=medium

  * Add debian/patches/git_fix-bashism.patch (Closes: #835289)

gnome-session (3.21.90-1) experimental; urgency=medium

  * New upstream beta release.
  * Update build-dependencies according to changes:
    - Add libgles2-mesa-dev
  * debian/gnome-session-{bin,common}.install:
    - stop installing *.ui and icons since gnome-session-properties tool
      has now been removed.
