usplash (0.5.48) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Kees Cook ]
  * usplash.8: document --background and --pidfile.
  * debian/usplash.upstart: as in Jaunty, start in pulsate mode for themes
    that define a progress bar (LP: #458398).

  [ Johan Kiviniemi ]
  * Let clients CLEAR old messages away when in quiet mode.
    - Fixes LP: #215666: mountall’s messages such as “foo cannot yet be
      mounted” would be left on the screen even after success.

  [ Scott James Remnant ]
  * Build on the above patch adding an ESCAPE command that takes the pid
    of a process.  When Escape is pressed, if this command has been received
    and no further INPUT* commands received, SIGINT is sent to that process

usplash (0.5.45) karmic; urgency=low

  * Make sure that when we open devices we use O_NOCTTY, since otherwise
    when run under Upstart we end up with controlling terminals that we
    didn't expect.
  * Then after we've forked into a child process, we call the TIOCSCTTY
    ioctl() to take control of the terminal we're on so we get input.

usplash (0.5.44) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add usplash_backend_name() function to the svgalib and bogl backends,
    returning "svga" and "bogl" respectively.

  [ Scott James Remnant ]
  * Move the console restoration into an atexit() function registered
    before the one from the svga or bogl backends; that way switching
    the VT doesn't result in svgalib having a panic attack and vomiting
    all over everything.
  * Remove the svgalib code guarding against restoring text mode when in
    a child process of the one that initialised the display; since we
    daemonise, this code meant we never restored text mode and left a
    corrupted or blank display.  LP: #448977, #447692.

  * usplash.c: Provide a new FADEOUT command to fade out the logo without
    QUITing. Change QUIT to not fade it out again if FADEOUT was sent.
    Document the new command in usplash_write.8.
  * debian/splash-functions, usplash_stop(): In runlevel 0/6, send FADEOUT
    command, to restore fade-out effect after the changes in r310 (which
    changed usplash not to terminate on shutdown/reboot any more).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Fix the Upstart job's pre-start script to stop the job when conditions
    are such that it shouldn't be started, without using 'normal exit 0 1'.

  [ Steve Langasek ]

    dropped to a shell can actually interact with it.  LP: #448214.

usplash (0.5.41) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add new options --background and --pidfile, to stop usplash startup
    being racy and to save a second on system shutdown. The pid file is now
    only written after usplash has opened its FIFO and set up the console.
  * Always enable usplash for 9.10 to hide boot messages, since we aren't
    yet ready to make it show up only on relatively slow boots (usplash
    tends to slow down boot on SSD-based systems). We'll revisit this for
    10.04 (LP: #444362).
  * Switch console on normal exit from usplash (i.e. the QUIT command or
    SIGTERM/SIGINT) rather than doing it after usplash exits.
  * On shutdown, wait for X to get the console out of graphics mode before
    starting our own setup.
  * Convert splash-functions to rely on usplash's Upstart job, and avoid
    killing usplash on system shutdown.
  * Redirect init script messages to tty8 if usplash was started during the
    current boot, regardless of the current virtual console (LP: #440871).

  [ Scott James Remnant ]
  * Replace --ignore-sigterm option with proper SIGTERM handling (and SIGINT)
    that causes the main loop to exit just as if it had timed out.
  * Move the shell logic that reads the framebuffer size into the C code to
    save on shell parsing overhead, and avoid the defeating of Upstart
    daemon tracking.
  * Have usplash read the kernel command-line itself and imply -v if
    "quiet" is not present.
  * Merge the usplash and usplash-down Upstart jobs, this neatly means
    that they don't have to check for each other with pidof, and you can
    use "start usplash" and "stop usplash" when you really mean just that.
  * usplash should not be a task (we want "start usplash" to return once
    usplash is running).
  * Fix the standard input flushing function to avoid an infinite loop.

usplash (0.5.40) karmic; urgency=low

  * libusplash.c: Move waiting out of dim_logo() into fade_logo(), so that we
    can use dim_logo() for asynchronous pulsating as well.
  * libusplash.{h,c}: Add pulse_logo() which lets the logo pulsate another
    step, using dim_logo(). If pulsating is enabled, call it in usplash.c's
    do_animate() function, which is already called regularly through a timer.
  * usplash.c: Do not fade out logo when pulsating is enabled, since it looks
    ugly (fade out always starts at full brightness). Doing this more smoothly
    requires some reorganization/merging of the fade/dim logic and state
  * usplash.c: Add option --pulse-logo which enables logo pulsating right from
    the start. Document it in usplash.8.
  * usplash.c: Add new command PULSELOGO which starts logo pulsing. Document
    it in usplash_write.8, and also refer to it in usplash.8. (LP: #438762)

usplash (0.5.39) karmic; urgency=low

  * Convert usplash to Upstart jobs, so that we handle VT switching on
    startup/shutdown properly again (LP: #434361). This makes use of a new
    'starting-dm' event emitted by display manager jobs, so declare Breaks
    on gdm and kdm versions that don't do this.
  * Add -t option to set the initial timeout without having to wait for the
    fifo to appear. (Upstart jobs don't tend to talk to usplash at the
    moment, so we need a longer timeout to start with in the initramfs,
    until we get as far as running init scripts.)
  * Add --ignore-sigterm option as a temporary hack to make it easier to use
    Upstart's built-in process-killing code.

usplash (0.5.34) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Add support for fading in/out the logo:
    - libusplash.h, libusplash.c: Add new function fade_logo(on, steps) which
      fades the logo in/out.
    - libusplash.c, usplash_setup(): Do not set the palette here already.
    - usplash.c: Fade logo in at startup (0.5 seconds), and out at QUIT (0.2
  * Reverse the fade times at shutdown:
    - usplash.c: Add new option -d for shutdown, and call fade_logo() with
      swapped steps if it is given.
    - usplash_down: Call usplash with -d.
    - usplash.8: Document -d.
  * debian/shlibs.local: Bump for new API.

  [ Loïc Minier ]
  * usplash_down, initramfs/scripts/init-top/usplash: Set xres/yres from the
    fb or KMS virtual_size if available as read from /sys, overriding
    usplash.conf values.  It's ugly to rely on /sys, but there was already a
    check for /sys to detect KMS and some code in initramfs-tools to generate
    an usplash.conf from /sys on mxcfb fbs.  This merges the kuldges in a
    single place and causes usplash to actually use the current and probably
    highest resolution on KMS and fb devices, while the default was to set the
    resolution to the first theme's size (640x400 with the Ubuntu theme).
    Proper fix is to make usplash use the current resolution instead but will
    take more time.
  * usplash_down, initramfs/scripts/init-top/usplash: Stop sourcing
    etc/usplash.conf since usplash_setup() does this by default when xres and
    yres aren't set on the command line anyway.
  * Flip dh_installdeb and dh_makeshlibs call in rules to actually get
    proper ldconfig call in the .postinst as lintian expects.
  * Add #DEBHELPER# to preinst.

usplash (0.5.30) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Providing a background image for all possible resolutions has become too
    cumbersome. Thus change theme definitions to be able to provide just a
    logo, its screen position, and an explicit theme size: (LP: #64147)
    - usplash-theme.h: Add new fields theme_width, theme_height, pixmap_x,
      pixmap_y. Bump THEME_VERSION for this.
    - usplash-theme.h: Add new functions usplash_theme_width() and
      usplash_theme_height() which usplash and themes should use instead of an
      explicit pixmap->width/height. These functions will return
      theme_{width,height} and fall back to the pixmap's dimensions if the
      theme size is 0.
    - libusplash.c: Implement above two functions, update the code to use them
      instead of the pixmap dimensions, and add the pixmap_{x,y} offset when
      drawing pixmap.
    - This will require all usplash themes to be rebuilt, define above
      four fields, and replace theme->pixmap->width() with
      usplash_theme_width(theme) (likewise for height). If you want to retain
      full screen pixmaps, just set all of those fields to 0.

  * libusplash.c: INPUTCHAR did not sleep correctly due to animation
    signals (LP: #194017).
  * libusplash.c: get_timeout_char() was not re-enabling signals.
  * usplash.c, usplash_write.c: removed command data-loss race introduced by
    needless re-opening of input fifo (LP: #200299).
  * usplash.c: "TIMEOUT 0" was causing 100% CPU in select with timeout of 0.

usplash (0.5.12) hardy; urgency=low

  * Add new command "INPUTCHAR" which checks for a pending key press and
    reports it to the FIFO (empty string if no key was pressed). This is
    better than INPUTTIMEOUT for implementing things like "Press ESC to skip
    this step" after all. Documented the command in the manpage.
  * libusplash.[hc]: Add flush_stdin() to clear stdin. Call it on usplash
    startup in main(), which fixes getting random key presses when calling
    usplash in a running system.

  * libusplash.c, usplash_timeout_get_string(): Fix wrong and confusing
  * usplash.c: Fix argument parsing for INPUTTIMEOUT (off-by-one error, and
    wrong string length).
  * libusplash.c, usplash_timeout_get_string(): If no char was entered during
    timeout, return an empty string instead of poking a 0 into random memory
    and returning a random string.
  * libusplash.c, handle_timeout_input(): Always output the string to the
    output FIFO, even if input timed out and the string is empty. Otherwise
    the usplash client cannot know whether it should starve and die waiting
    for the reading FIFO or not listen to it and let usplash starve and die
    for writing the FIFO.
  * libusplash.c: Interpret INPUTTIMEOUT value as deciseconds instead of
    seconds. This makes it much more useful for polling for input while doing
    something in the background.
  * usplash_write.8: Add documentation for INPUTTIMEOUT.
  * libusplash.c, usplash_timeout_get_string(): Handle backspace properly.

  * usplash_svga.c, usplash_svga_text(): When running in 16bpp mode,
    calling gl_setpixel() (which takes a palette index) does not make sense,
    since we never set a palette (this happens only in 8bpp modes). Use
    gl_setpixelrgb() in 16bpp mode and look up the RGB values from
    vesa_palette, which is initialized from the theme.

    This repairs operation on i386 and amd4 where SGVA is used, so that text
    appears in the color set by the theme, instead of being fixed to dark blue.
