 apport (0.18) edgy; urgency=low
   The "mating dance for ubiquity" release.
   * apport-gtk:
     - Use pidof's -x option in the detection whether the program is already
       running to correctly handle scripts.
     - Do not assume the presence of the ExecutablePath key in reports, but
       gracefully fall back to Package.
     - If the report specifies an explicit DesktopFile, use that instead of
       trying to figure it out.
     - Only created reduced report and show the radio buttons if there are
       actually removed fields.
     - Change tooltip of 'reduced report' radio button to be more generic (do
       not refer to the memory dump, but to 'large items', since this is what
       apport-gtk currently does).
     - Support new field 'BugDisplayMode: file | list (default)'. In 'file'
       mode, display the /+filebug page instead of /+bugs and change
       instructions accordingly.
     - Use the ProcCmdline attibute to restart an application; correctly
       parsing of all the desktop file is just not possible at this point.
     - Support new field 'RespawnCommand' to use custom respawning command.
   * Add method has_removed_fields() to check whether load()
     skipped any fields due to binary=False. Add test suite check.
   * Fix the quoting in ProcCmdline so that it is fully shell
   * run-tests: Check if kernel crash dump helper is active, and if so, run
     test-apport in kernel mode.
   * Support an optional second argument of file references
     which controls whether or not the file contents will be compressed/encoded
     (defaults to True for backwards compatibility). Add test suite checks.
