== What was done engineering wise? ==

 * Land rewritten check-language-support, which is much faster and more robust. Create an aptdaemon plugin with it which now automatically installs corresponding language support together with newly installed software.
 * Fix gdm->lightdm autologin migration, so the Jenkins system/user configuration upgrade migration tests are much happier now.
 * Land new gnome-control-center UI to configure some Unity properties.
 * OpenJDK now finally switched to the ATK 2 stack.
 * New GTK/GLib stack. This is currently causing some theming regressions, some of which will be fixed by Unity 5.2 (planned to land today).
 * Moved remaining 3 Alpha-2 WI stragglers to Beta-1, chart is clean now.

== What's about to land that might impact the other teams? ==

 * Unity 5.2 stack. It was well tested in a PPA before, with formal test cases as well as every-day desktop tasks.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==
