 apport (0.48) feisty; urgency=low
   New feature: Infrastructure for reporting kernel Oopses:
   * Add bin/kernel_hook and ship it in /usr/share/apport. The kernel can call
     this on an Oops. Add a test suite for it to test-hooks.
   * apport/ Add support for reporting ProblemType: Kernel reports, and
     add test suite for the workflow.
   * gtk/apport-gtk{,.glade}: Add implementation for ui_present_kernel_error().
   * Merged various apport-retrace improvements from Kees' branch:
     - Add various options to override some report fields with local values.
     - Add --verbose option and be quiet by default.
     - Read ProcMaps for additional library dependencies, to also catch
       libraries loaded at runtime (plugins).
     - Set correct debug file directory when starting an interactive gdb
       session with -g.
   * Add gtk/ Desktop file for calling apport-gtk in
     'file a distro bug' mode, to be displayed in gnome-panel's System menu
     (see bug-reporting-tool spec). Also add a Makefile to do the
     intltool-merge dance, add it to, and ship it in
   * bin/apport: Call add_os_info(), so that we get architecture information
     even for 'naked' reports which didn't go through UI enrichment.
   * Add ./test-hooks: Test suite for the various package hooks shipped with
     apport. Test the package problem hook for now.
   Bug fixes:
   * debian/control: Add missing python-apt dependency to apport
     (apport-retrace needs it). Thanks to Kees Cook for noticing.
   * debian/control: Add gdb dependency to python-apport.
   * backends/ test suite: Verify that packages returned by
     get_dependencies() actually exist. This catches the 'chops off first
     letter of package name sometimes' bug.
   * backends/, _init_status(): Add missing space to Depends:
     field format in dpkg-query call. This fixes the chopped-off first letters
     in the 'Dependencies' report field.
   * Remove version attribute, we do not update and use it anyway.
   * apport/ Do not crash if Package: specifies a nonexisting package.
     Display a proper error message instead. Add test_run_crash_errors() test
   * apport/, add_package_info(): Fix crash when the first dependency
     is not installed. Closes: LP#82561
   * gtk/ Remove window titles in alert dialogs to comply with
     Gnome HIG. Closes: LP#83123
