  * jockey/oslib.py, jockey/xorg_driver.py:
    - Add code to fully enable hybrid graphics when using
      Saucy's LTS stack, and the future Trusty stack
      (LP: #1279229).
  * tests/hybridgraphics.py:
    - Add tests which simulate the availability of Saucy's
      and Trusty's backported stacks.

  * jockey/xorg_driver.py, tests/hybridgraphics.py:
    - Add support for systems with two or more AMD GPUs.
      This is very useful now that AMD's APUs have been
      released (LP: #1272311).
    - Adjust the tests so that they no longer fail when
      dealing with systems with multiple AMD GPUs (now
      dealt with by the fglrx-pxpress package).

  * SECURITY UPDATE: possible privilege escalation via policykit UID lookup
    race.
    - jockey/backend.py: pass system-bus-name as a subject instead of pid
      so policykit can get the information from the system bus.

  * data/handlers/fglrx.py:
    - Show the driver as enabled when pxpress is in use.
      Thanks to Doro Wu for the patch (LP: #1196848).
    - Add handlers for -experimental-{12|13}.
    - Only -experimental-13 supports hybrid graphics.
  * data/handlers/nvidia.py:
    - Add handlers for 319/-updates 304/-updates.
    - Only 319/-updates support hybrid graphics.
    - Make sure to remove the correct nvidia-settings
      flavour.
  * data/handlers/{fglrx|nvidia}.py:
    - Add support for Hybrid Graphics (LP: #1198942):
      + Driver handlers now need to state that they support
        hybrid graphics and subclass either the
        _NvidiaDriverHybridBase class or the FglrxDriverHybrid
        class.
      + Drivers which don't claim to support hybrid graphics
        will not show up on hybrid systems.
      + If the nvidia-prime or the fglrx-pxpress packages are
        not available, the drivers won't be available on
        hybrid systems. This avoids breaking systems which
        require further configuration which only these two
        packages provide.
      + Jockey doesn't touch the xorg.conf when dealing with
        hybrid graphics (as either nvidia-prime or
        fglrx-pxpress will take care of it).
      + Hybrid Graphics is only supported on systems which
        use Raring's backported X and kernel.
  * jockey/xorg_driver.py:
    - Add supports_hybrid_graphics class attribute.
    - Add has_hybrid_graphics class attribute.
    - Add better support for faking devices and packages.
    - Ignore transitional packages.
  * jockey/oslib.py:
    - Add package_transitional() method.
    - Add package_available() method.
    - Make current_xorg_video_abi take into account
      backported packages.
    - Catch additional arguments in package_installed().
      This gives us some flexibility when using fake
      devices for testing.
    - Add some checks for raring's backported xserver.
  * tests/hybridgraphics.py:
    - Add coverage for hybrid graphics.
  * tests/oslib.py:
    - Deal with the multiple video abis that drivers may
      support.
    - Make sure that the kernel headers are available before
      failing.
  * tests/sandbox.py:
    - Report a more compliant fake X ABI.
    - Update package_installed() to match the one in oslib.py.

  * broadcom_wl.py: Don't rebind or load the module, nor unload the b43*
    modules. Installing the package already does that in postinst, and doing
    it again in the handler causes an oops in the driver. (LP: #1171048)

      Sometimes the "Source" key is not available.
  * tests/kerneldetection.py:
    - Add two tests to make sure that get_linux_metapackage()
      doesn't raise a KeyError when dealing with packages
      without a "Source" field and that the function doesn't
      stop if one or two packages don't have the said field.

  * data/handlers/fglrx.py:
    - Make sure to mark the experimental driver as such (LP: #1078290).
    - Always pass "fglrx" to get the alternative name or jockey will
      fail to set the correct alternative.

    - Insert spaces when appending lines from the control file description.
      Fixes bad formatting in jockey's package description.

  * data/handlers/nvidia.py: Fix broken condition in used(), which would be
    True already if the package was merely installed. (LP: #759804)
  * jockey/oslib.py, ignored_modules(): Drop linux-ubuntu-modules, gone long
    ago.
  * Cherry-pick r720 from trunk to support a new --kernel option on the
    backend and frontend with --no-dbus. This allows ubiquity to install a PAE
    kernel on the target system and tell jockey to install kernel headers for
    that one instead for the running one. Based on a patch from Evan Dandrea,
    thanks! (LP: #759804)
  * Cherry-pick r721 from trunk: OpenPrintingDriverDB: Use the actual package

    of a thinko back then. Update test cases accordingly. (LP: #744751)

  * data/handlers/nvidia.py: Some cleanup:
    - Drop obsolete add_modules=['glx'].
    - Drop setting DefaultDepth=24, X.org does that by default now.
    - Move version 96 specific code to NvidiaDriver96 class.
    - Remove some dead code.
  * Merge from trunk:
    - XorgDriverHandler: Support None X.org driver to avoid changing the
      Driver setting. This is appropriate for drivers which X.org conf
      autodetects.
    - Add new flag Handler.needs_kernel_headers and install kernel headers if
      set.
  * data/handlers/{nvidia,fglrx}.py: Stop setting the X.org driver and
    alternate free driver. Natty's X.org now prefers the proprietary drivers
    over the free ones when available (105_nvidia_fglrx_autodetect.patch).
    This allows X.org to fall back to the free driver if the proprietary one
    gets broken or out of sync. (LP: #522061)
  * jockey/oslib.py: Set kernel header metapackage name from currently running
    kernel flavour, and add a small test case that it is a valid package.
  * data/handlers/{nvidia,fglrx}.py: Replace custom code to install kernel
    headers with setting the needs_kernel_headers flag.
  * data/handlers/broadcom_wl.py: Set needs_kernel_headers flag. (LP: #567699)
  * jockey/oslib.py, install_packages(): python-apt recently changed
    "architecture" field of a candidate Version; where it used to say "all"
    it now has the platform name. So switch to
    candidate.record['Architecture'] to check if a package is Arch: all. This
    unbreaks installation of unsigned third-party PPD packages.

  * New upstream release:
    - Add support for repository fingerprints, and retrieve them from
      openprinting.org when available.
    - Allow binary drivers if they have a valid GPG fingerprint on a trusted
      https:// site. This is a lot weaker than our usual archive trust chain,
      but as it's very hard to get a chain of trust to printer driver vendors,
      relying on good SSL certificates is the next best step, and still much
      better than what the average user does when searching and downloading a
      driver by himself.
    - Add API for retrieving and installing a GPG key based on a fingerprint.
    - Merge add_repository() into install_package(), which is much more
      practical for verifying whether a package in a new repository ist
      trustworthy.
  * jockey/oslib.py, tests/oslib.py: Update for merged add_repository(), and
