 jockey (0.4-0ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low
   * New upstream release 0.4:
     - Implements an XML-RPC client for querying a driver database, as
       specified on this year's LinuxFoundation Collaboration Summit. There is
       no server implementation for this yet, though.
     - Add general support for third-party repositories and packages not yet
       known to the local system. In the course of this, the functionality of
       DriverPackageHandler became merged into the generic Handler class, and
       ModulePackageHandler became obsolete (KernelModuleHandler now does all
       of this). This made the code a bit shorter and easier, too.
     - Add support for python-coverage in the test suite, and add a lot of
       missing tests.
     - Lots of bug fixes.
   * Update to current trunk bzr head:
     - Split into privileged D-BUS backend and unprivileged frontends, control
       access with PolicyKit. This gets rid of the nasty "gksu/kdesu myself"
       code, and makes the service more useful for other desktop applications
       which look for drivers.
     - Support fourth field in modalias files for specifying a package name (as
       done by nvidia-XX-modaliases packages).
     - Update NVidia handler to get along with the multiple-versions packages
       in Intrepid.
   * debian/jockey-common.install: Install D-BUS and PolicyKit configuration
     files, and jockey-backend program.
   * data/handlers/ Update to new upstream infrastructure.
   * jockey/ Reimplement {install,remove}_package() using simple
     apt-get calls, with no precise progress information. This is a
     quick'n'dirty hack for Intrepid Alpha-3, so that the user at least gets
     some kind of visual feedback on package installation. This will be cleaned
     up later.
   * debian/control: Add python-dbus, policykit dependencies to -common, and
     policykit-gnome dependency to -gtk.
   * debian/control: Recommend nvidia-common to provide out-of-the-box
     detection of nvidia cards, and their matching driver.
