ltsp (5.3-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (5.3):

      scripts, applying at boot time instead of build time.
    - Massive rework of all our init scripts, including deprecation of
    - Better nbd handling, using the upstream nbd scripts. LTSP is now
      using named NBD mount for both root and swap.
    - Moved from a whitelist of boot services to a blacklist, please get
      in touch with upstream if you noticed something that needs
    - New improved nbd-proxy with support for named NBD mounts
      (nbd-proxy is turned off by default)
    - Improvement to ltsp-update-image including, use of ionice by default.
    - Lots of fat clients improvement.
    - Proper handling of resolvconf

      client at boot time.
    - Improve ltsp-chroot command (it even has a manpage now)
    - Better handling of mixed NFS and NBD environment.
    - More consistent use of ltsp_config and ltsp-*-functions giving us
      a consistent environment and avoiding some delays.
    - Improved sound volume handling using udev rule instead of the old
    - Plenty of other fixes, thanks to everyone involved with this release!
