    - update debian/apport/source_firefox.py.in
  * Ensure that create-tarball can handle there not being a locale blacklist
    - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
  * Drop xpt.py and xpidl from $LIBDIR. xpidl is gone, and xpt.py isn't included
    there in the upstream SDK
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
  * Fix LP: #901838 - Ugly busy pointer, due to libxcursor no longer matching

    - update debian/patches/series
  * Don't disable our bundled addons on upgrade
    - update debian/vendor.js
  * Modify the UA string to add "Ubuntu" to the platform component
    - add debian/patches/ubuntu-ua-string-changes.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
    - update debian/rules
  * Move custom scripts to debian/build
    - move debian/get-xpi-id.py to debian/build/get-xpi-id.py

    - move debian/extract-file.py to debian/build/extract-file.py
    - update debian/rules
    - move debian/testsuite.mk to debian/build/testsuite.mk

    - remove debian/patches/bz386904_config_rules_install_dist_files.patch

    - remove debian/patches/drop_bz418016.patch

    - update debian/patches/series
  * Refresh patches:
    - update debian/patches/firefox-kde.patch

    - update debian/patches/allow-lockPref-everywhere.patch
    - update debian/patches/distro-locale-searchplugins.patch
    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-bookmarks.patch
  * Shrink the default mozconfig right down so that we use mostly upstream
    defaults, rather than overriding them with our own options. It is still
    possible to override them though. We also drop the pkg-config checks in
    debian/rules which allowed a fallback build configuration when dependencies
    aren't satisfied. Really, the build should just fail here rather than
    continuing in some undesirable fallback mode
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/pkgconfig/libxul.pc.in
    - update debian/control.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Refresh build-depends, as this hasn't been done for a while:
    - Drop patchutils, libxft-dev, libxinerama-dev, libgnome2-dev and bzip2.
      These aren't needed
    - Drop liborbit2-dev - only required if there is no libidl
    - Add libglib2.0-dev, libext-dev, libfontconfig1-dev and libpango1.0-dev,
      as the configure script checks for these directly
    - Add minimum versions to libgconf2-dev, libgnomevfs2-dev, yasm and
    - Specify minimum versions for libnspr4-dev, libcairo2-dev, libsqlite3-dev
      and libnss3-dev when using system versions of those libs
  * Introduce a branch config file (debian/config/branch.mk) which holds
    settings which shouldn't be merged between branches (eg, whether
    the crash reporter should be enabled)
    - add debian/config/branch.mk
    - update debian/rules
  * Move debian/locales.* to debian/config
    - move debian/locales.shipped => debian/config/locales.shipped
    - move debian/locales.unavail => debian/config/locales.unavail
    - move debian/locales.blacklist => debian/config/locales.blacklist
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/build/refresh-supported-locales.pl
  * Don't open about:blank from the New Window quicklist entry
    - update debian/firefox.desktop.in
  * Touch debian/control.in during clean to force a refresh of debian/control,
    so we can check if it is out-of-date and fail if it is
    - update debian/rules
  * Drop the mozilla-devscripts dependency. We were only using this for creating
    tarballs anyway. Instead, implement our own get-orig-source target, which
    also fixes some problems we were having
    - update debian/control.in
    - remove debian/moz-rev.sh
    - update debian/rules
    - remove debian/mozclient/firefox.mk
    - remove debian/mozclient/firefox.conf
    - update debian/config/branch.mk
    - add debian/build/create-source
    - add debian/build/get-orig-source.mk
  * Lots of workflow improvements for dealing with language packs:
    - update debian/rules
    - add debian/build/extract-file.py
    - add debian/build/dump-langpack-control-entries.pl
    - update debian/build/refresh-supported-locales.pl
    - add debian/config/locales.all
    - update debian/config/locales.shipped
    - remove debian/config/locales.unavailable
    - update debian/control
    - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
  * Turn off the one-time addon selection dialog (LP: #888307)
    - update debian/vendor.js
  * Add Mongolian and Swahili to locale blacklist. These aren't meant to be
    built on the release channel, but they still appear in the upstream
    - update debian/locales.blacklist
  * Rewrite the apport hook to be more useful
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
  * Ship a file in /etc/apport/native-origins.d to enable bug reporting
    on PPA branches
    - add debian/apport/native-origins.in
    - rename debian/apport/firefox.in => debian/apport/blacklist.in
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
  * Update the apport blacklist file now that the binary name has changed
    - update debian/apport/firefox.in
  * Look in the correct location for the staged langpack xpi's. They moved
    from dist/install to dist/linux-$(DEB_HOST_GNU_CPU)
    - update debian/rules
  * Simplify firefox-dev.install a bit by installing everything in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
  * Handle video/webm mimetypes
    - update debian/firefox.desktop.in
  * Fix check-sync-dirs.py test failure - ensure config/system-headers and
    js/src/config/system-headers are kept in sync
    - update debian/patches/unity-globalmenu-build-support-patch
  * Fix browserGlue_distribution.js and browserGlue_smartBookmarks.js xpcshell
    test failures. Update DEFAULT_BOOKMARKS_ON_MENU with the correct number of
    default bookmarks
    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-bookmarks.patch
  * Fix jsreftest failures by setting the correct timezone and locale
    - update debian/testsuite.mk
  * Switch off debian/patches/fix-selection-drag-autoscroll.patch for now. It
    doesn't apply and needs a rethink
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Fix "format not a string literal and no format arguments" error
   - add debian/patches/printf-fix.patch
   - update debian/patches/series
  * Update for the binary name change
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
  * Ensure we install dependentlibs.list so that Firefox knows which libs
    to dlopen before libxul
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
  * Get rid of some more hanging IPC xpcshell tests
    - update debian/testsuite.mk
  * Now Firefox lazy loads libxul, drop the LD_LIBRARY_PATH hack from the
    shell wrapper (LP: #561124)
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
  * Only install channel-prefs.js on aurora/beta, where we need it for
    Test Pilot. We don't set a channel name on other branches anyway, so we
    just end up with a nonsense channel name ("default") appearing in the
    About dialog
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
  * Don't error out whilst creating the source package if mozilla-devscripts
    or cdbs aren't installed. This enables us to create source packages
    on machines which don't have these available
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozclient/firefox.mk
  * Unconditionally build with --disable-elf-hack. It's basically a noop
    on Ubuntu, as we don't get any of the nice space saving and startup
    time improvements that upstream builds get with it. Enabling it is
    problematic (it fails to build on all architectures in Ubuntu from
    Firefox 7 onwards, and is problematic on armel when building on
    older Ubuntu versions)
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
  * Don't unconditionally set -fshort-wchar in the libxul.pc pkgconfig file.
    It's no longer needed with newer toolchains which support gnu++0x, and
    defining it breaks the mozvoikko build
    - update debian/pkgconfig/libxul.pc.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Drop the profile migrator, as it doesn't really make any sense with the new
    release cycle. In Firefox 7, we want to drop the shell wrapper script
    - remove debian/migrator/xulapp-profilemigrator
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/control.in
  * xpt_link and xpt_dump have been replaced by xpt.py
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
  * Add support for the system provided hyphenation patterns, by linking
    @MOZ_LIBDIR@/hyphenation to /usr/share/hyphen
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
  * Drop the special "kde.js" file handling from the pref service. It hasn't
    had the desired effect since Firefox 4, as the specialfile handling
    doesn't apply to pref files inside the omni.jar. Moving kde.js back in to
    defaults/pref isn't an option, as these are always read after the prefs
    in the omni.jar, which would mean that all users would get the KDE
    specific prefs. Note, we only override one pref in kde.js anyway, it can
    go elsewhere if really required
    - update debian/patches/mozilla-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/firefox-kde.patch
    - note, this doesn't change any behaviour from Firefox 4 and 5, but the
      code this patch touched was rewritten in Firefox 6, so it makes more
      sense to just remove it now rather than refactor it and it stil not work
  * Drop abrowser. The abrowser branding doesn't work since Firefox 4, and
    is going to be difficult to maintain going forwards. The Firefox logo
    is freely licensed now, which was the main reason for the existance of
    abrowser. Current abrowser users will be migrated to Firefox
    - remove debian/abrowser.desktop
    - update debian/control
    - update debian/rules
    - remove debian/ubuntu-abrowser.js.tmpl
    - remove debian/patches/awesome_browser_branding_install.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
    - remove debian/patches/browser_branding.patch
    - remove debian/patches/abrowser_run_mozilla.patch
  * Auto-generate debhelper and other files at build-time
    - rename debian/firefox.dirs => debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - rename debian/firefox.install => debian/firefox.install.in
    - rename debian/firefox.links => debian/firefox.links.in
    - rename debian/firefox.menu => debian/firefox.menu.in
    - rename debian/firefox.xml => debian/firefox.xml.in
    - rename debian/firefox-gnome-support.install =>
    - rename debian/apport/firefox.py => debian/apport/firefox.py.in
    - rename debian/firefox-restart-required.update-notifier =>
    - add debian/firefox-mozsymbols.in
    - update debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
    - update debian/firefox.menu.in
    - update debian/firefox-gnome-support.install.in
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
    - update debian/firefox-restart-required.update-notifier.in
  * Update apport hook to work with packed extensions
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
  * Drop firefox-gnome-support maintainer scripts, as they aren't needed
    now. Touching .autoreg on install doesn't do anything, and registering
    the gnome-www-browser alternative has moved to firefox
    - remove debian/firefox-gnome-support.postinst.in
    - remove debian/firefox-gnome-support.prerm.in
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - update debian/firefox.prerm.in
  * Tidy up the branding selection to auto-select based on the channel.
    Also drop obsolete desktop files
    - update debian/rules
    - remove debian/firefox-minefield.desktop
    - remove debian/firefox-namoroka.desktop
  * Build language packs directly from the firefox source
    + Fixes LP: #294187 - Firefox Locales should install locale specific
      search plugins
    + Rip out the bits to create a en-US.xpi
      - update debian/rules
      - remove debian/translation-support/install.rdf.in
    + Include compare-locales FIREFOX_5_0b1_BUILD1 from
      http://hg.mozilla.org/build/compare-locales. It's needed for merging
      en-US strings with incomplete locales
    + Pull l10n data in to tarball from bzr
      - update debian/mozclient/firefox.conf
    + Configure build for creating language packs by configuring with
      - update debian/mozconfig.in
    + Store the list of locales to ship, and provide a way of automatically
      generating that list and the control file entries from the upstream
      source. Also provide a way to blacklist languages. We map languages
      to package names using langpack-o-matic (and also get descriptions
      from there too)
      - update debian/rules
      - add debian/locales.shipped
      - add debian/control.langpacks
      - update debian/control.in
      - add debian/locale.blacklist
      - add debian/refresh-supported-locales.pl
    + Add common-build-indep hook to build the translation xpi's
      - update debian/rules
    + Add common-binary-post-install-indep to install the xpi's and
      searchplugins in to the correct debian packages
      - update debian/rules
      - add debian/get-xpi-id.py
    + When rebuilding debian/control in the clean target, fail the build
      if the control file was out-of-date. This ensures that we don't
      accidentally drop language packs, and forces me to maintain an
      up-to-date control file in bzr
      - update debian/rules
    + Apply vendor patches to localized searchplugins too
      - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-amazon.patch
      - add debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-baidu.patch
      - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-google.patch
    + Add languages that are currently dropped in FF5 (compared with FF3.6) to
      locales.unavailable. Having transitional packages now will make
      transitioning easier later on if they come back
      - add debian/locales.unavailable
  * Build with "make -f client.mk" and using a mozconfig, rather than the
    autoconf/configure/make steps used previously. The client.mk contains the
    sequencing for doing PGO builds
    - add debian/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Prevent LP: #643899 - Firefox sending header "Accept-Language:
    chrome://global/locale/intl.properties" because the intl.accept_languages
    preference is messed up. Drop a patch which causes the preferences
    system to save a user preference when changing a preference value to equal
    the system default value (and revert to the original behaviour where the
    preference is just discarded). This should hopefully stop Firefox Sync
    from breaking localized preferences where they haven't been modified by
    the user, but does regress LP: #548866
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Prevent LP: #744580 - Firefox doesn't autoscroll when selecting content
    - add debian/patches/fix-selection-drag-autoscroll.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Run the Mozilla test suite at build time. Test-suite failures won't
    break the build just yet
    - add debian/testsuite.mk
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/control.in
  * Build using the versioned yasm-1 binary backported to Lucid
    - add debian/patches/use-new-yasm-in-lucid.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
    - update debian/control.in
    - refresh debian/control
  * Add a firefox-dev package. We need this for mozvoikko
    - update debian/control.in
    - add debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - add debian/firefox-dev.links.in
    - add debian/pkgconfig/libxul.pc.in
    - add debian/pkgconfig/mozilla-nspr.pc.in
    - add debian/pkgconfig/mozilla-plugin.pc.in
    - update debian/rules
    - refresh debian/control
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Restore global preference folder (/etc/firefox/pref)
    - add debian/patches/add-syspref-dir.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
    - update debian/firefox.links.in

  [ Brian Murray <brian at ubuntu.com> ]
  * Fix LP: #758111 - update ubuntulinux.org bookmark - thanks to Jonathan
    Rothwell for the patch

  [ Micah Gersten <micahg at ubuntu.com> ]
  * Add patch from upstream to fix PowerPC FTBFS (bmo: 703534) aka
    Build failure on platforms without YARR JIT
    - add debian/patches/fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
