 gdm (2.20.1-0ubuntu1) gutsy-proposed; urgency=low
   * New upstream release:
     - Now gdmlogin and gdmgreeter treat Tab like enter if the focus
       is on the entry field.  This addresses usability issues as
       described in bug #433495.
     - Fix bug that was causing the user's default language/session choices
       to not get saved properly if they didn't already have a $HOME/.dmrc
     - Fix bug with XDMCP logic that was causing GDM to get confused
       about when the maximum number of XDMCP sessions has been reached.
       (LP: #152068)
     - Fix an issue that was causing the username to be logged as a debug
       message when using GDM configured to use crypt or shadow passwords
       (instead of the default PAM).  This could cause the user's password
       to get saved as a debug message if the user accidently typed their
       password into the username field when using crypt/shadow passwords.
       No longer translate debug messages in general.
     - Set stdout/stderr to DEV_NULL when spawning at_spi_registryd and
       the prefetch program, fixing a hanging problem.
     - GDM now always sends the daemon a response before exit to avoid a
     - Fix gdmXnestchooser and gdmsetup so debug isn't on by default.
       (LP: #137276)
     - Updated the gdmgreeter themes so that they display correctly
       on 800x600 displays.
     - Build/configure fixes for Solaris.
     - Translation updates
   * debian/patches/65_tab-means-enter-after-entry.patch:
     - Dropped as got fixed upstream
   * debian/patches/90_from_svn_create_config_when_required.patch:
